Raising Steam by Terry Pratchett (ebook)
This book is the worst of all Discworld stories. Why is it bad? He was an incredible author in his prime. Agree with all the other reviewers who said Pratchett did not write Raising Steam.
I love Discworld, and the Moist Von Lipwig books are my absolute favorites. It breaks my heart to give this one a negative review. At first I blamed the plodding, tangential plot and the flat jokes on Sir Terry's disease, but I don't think any degree of dementia could prompt an author to so deeply misunderstand his own characters.
Moist is dull! Vetinari is unsubtle!
Harry King is slow-witted! Death is vindictive! And while Sir Terry may have made a lot of jokes about death, he never treated deaths so carelessly whoever wrote this book even mocks a mother's grief at the violent deaths of her two sons.
Raising Steam centers and lionizes things like industrialization, financial success, and fighting skills, rather than the relationships and personal growth that are centered in most of Discworld. I feel like if this author wrote Jingo, Vimes would have valiantly led a tiny band of Watch to slaughter the entire Klatchian army. On the deepest level, there's none of the fundamental wisdom that I expect from Terry Pratchett.
(Discworld novel 40)
Whenever I finish a Discworld book, I feel like I have a slightly better understanding of the world - even on re-reads! Paperback Verified Purchase. The thing you must be aware of when reading "Raising Steam" is that Terry Pratchett wrote it after having been diagnosed with Early Onset Alzheimer's. At this point in his life, he was unable to read or write, he dictated the entire book, and there was doubtlessly someone who edited it for him.
Seen as a novel written by someone with severe brain damage, it is an amazing effort. Compared with the other Discworld books, however, it was a pale echo of what had gone before. Steam power has finally come to Ankh-Morpork, and this is the story of how this perpetually technology free fantasy world adapts to the coming of the Industrial Age.
The trouble is that it is more an account of what happened, than an actual story. The steam engine is invented, people become interested, tracks are laid, trains begin running. You're taken through every step of the process with no doubt that they will be completed, and no degree of dramatic tension. There are antagonists, in the form of Dwarven terrorists who oppose the train and all that it symbolizes, and this is one of the strongest parts of the book; however any tension they may generate tends to fall flat.
The story isn't boring, it is just told in such a matter of fact way, that there is no doubt that the good-guys will prevail, and no doubt about how they will manage it. In the end, all the loose ends are tied up, the heroes are given happy endings, roll on the Industrial Age, and a new Ankh-Morpork.
It is not the greatest book, but it is still entertaining and eminently readable, and, for me at least, was a warm-hearted farewell to the Discworld we all know and love, and to it's creator as well.
I know that Terry Pratchett wrote another Tiffany Aching book after this, but, as they were aimed at younger readers, have never viewed them as fully part of the Discworld mythology, but as something running parallel to it. See all reviews.
