REVIEW: Unseen Academicals


Author: Terry Pratchett

Ages: 12+ (adults included)

Although the actual storyline of  Unseen Academicals doesn’t seem that brilliant on reflection, it is still colourful, involving and surprising. It focusses on the wizards, but not Rincewind and does not give the impression of being entirely random and plotless. Definitely not. It is easy to follow and makes complete sense the whole way through… except maybe the stalker bird-ladies. You’d think it would be easier to follow one basic instruction.

Unseen Academicals pokes fun at football/soccer as well as supports it and possibly uses it as the main theme, so if you’re an extreme fan and will be bothered by it, well, you’ll be bothered by it.
