December's Reading Power Book Club: Hogfather
+++ Divide By Cucumber Error. Please Reinstall Universe And Reboot +++
December is a wonderfully magical month thanks to old Saint Nick.
This is the twentieth book in Pratchett’s Discworld series and it’s so good that it was nominated for a British Fantasy Award! It has everything you could want in a book at this time of year. The Hogfather is a Father Christmas-type character who grants children’s wishes and brings them gifts on Hogswatchnight.
IT'S THE NIGHT BEFORE HOGSWATCH AND IT'S TOO QUIET.
Where is the big jolly fat man? Why is Death creeping down chimneys and trying to say Ho Ho Ho? The darkest night of the year is getting a lot darker...
Susan the gothic governess has got to sort it out by morning, otherwise there won't be a morning. Ever again...
Terry Pratchett's Hogfather is a festive feast of darkness and Death (but with jolly robins and tinsel too).
As they say: You'd better watch out...
