REVIEW: I Shall Wear Midnight



Author: Terry Pratchett

Ages: 12 to dead

I Shall Wear Midnight is the fourth book in the Tiffany Aching sequence, and the thirty-eighth book in the Discworld collection. It is probably my favorite Tiffany Aching book. I first read the four original Tiffany Aching books when I was nine, and even then this was my second favorite, to The Wee Free Men. It is, obviously, hilarious, although maybe not as much as Wintersmith and other similar books. Some may find it quite creepy and disturbing, in the same way as A Hat Full of Sky (a strange ghost-of-a-ghost taking over bodies, giving the previous owner no control) but also in a pure-evil-incredibly-intelligent-undefeatable-monster way – which is somehow the same in the context. Once again, Tiffany is being hunted by an ancient, invisible, ghost-like monster, but his time it is actually evil. It is definitely sometimes slightly age-restricted, but tolerable.
A section of the book takes place in Ankh-Morpork, so other familiar characters from the Disc appear, like Commander Vimes and Corporal Angua.
