Moving Pictures Characters ô 102 Sess in the same way that they possess weight Sadly alchemists never really held with such a uaint notion They think that they can change reality shape it to their own purpose Imagine then the damage that could be wrought if they get their hands. The Discworld is constantly evolving mainly courtesy of Ankh Morpork s guilds of something or other The Alchemists Guild s latest bout of explosion for example has produced the raw material for moving pictures ie movies Pretty soon Ankh Morpork becomes too cramped for the extravagant movie directors so cue a surprisingly fast and steady exodus to Holy Wood a long abandoned dwelling in the desertHoly Wood however is not a normal place housing some rather sinister things in its long forgotten ruins Unfortunately for the Discworld the only one whose sixth sense is tingling here is a flea ridden dog named Gaspode I mean he can speak and think faster than most intelligent humans however he lacks a certain charm to prevent the inevitable boot in its hinduarters Luckily he meets Victor perpetual wizarding student whose minds is open enough to comprehend the existence of a real life wonder dogThe overall reading experience of Moving Pictures was a very weird one When I started I felt completely disconnected from every character action and even the general idea of the plot All I could really appreciate were the occasional funny bits Of course it is very important to be sober when you take an exam Many worthwhile careers in the street cleansing fruit picking and subway guitar playing industries have been founded on a lack of understanding of this simple factA small crowd was collecting A small crowd collected very easily in Ankh Morpork As a city it had some of the most accomplished spectators in the universe They d watch anything especially if there was any possibility of anyone getting hurt in an amusing way Did I hear things or can that little dog speak said Dibbler He says he can t said VictorDibbler hesitated The excitement was unhinging him a little Well he said I suppose he should know I took a month long break from reading it when I went on holiday mostly because I didn t feel like carrying any physical books with me When I ended up picking up the story again things just clicked I suddenly got all the subtle nuances and the funny references I started enjoying the creepy atmosphere of the mysteriously moving sands in the desert And most importantly I was finally getting invested in the main characters adventures and stopped waiting for the cameos from other familiar onesScore 375 stars is it a good book At times the story felt like it was criticizing the workings of a very remote place that had nothing to do with me Other times however I could totally see it as part of one of John Oliver s tirades in one of his current ugh crusades For anyone who likes to read the gossip magazines gets invested in Hollywood stars romances finds themselves taking up a pitchfork against a celebrity or two this book can be a truly entertaining read Otherwise just browse the funny uotes list and skip this novel
