The last one ( )
  Ranbato | Dec 17, 2020 |
Fun, lighthearted yet softly sad final book written by Terry Pratchett. ( )
  LoriFox | Oct 24, 2020 |

"The Shepherd's Crown" was the last novel Terry Pratchett completed before his death, except, he didn't really get the time to finish it. The whole story is there from end to end but the book fades as it goes along.

Reading it was like starting with a fully finished movie where the lighting, music, script, and acting have been edited into something richly textured and powerful and starting to be presented with the unedited rushes. Each scene is there but Terry Pratchett's usual magic, his ability to make the prose sing, to deliver huge ideas at a scale that gives them meaning to us mere mortals, his ability to make me believe in the supernatural and care about the people, isn't there.

I'm glad I read the book. I wouldn't have missed the start for anything. I cried when I lost Granny Weatherwax early in the book. It may seem extreme to cry over the death of a fictional character but I've known Granny Weatherwax for more than thirty years and Terry Pratchett made her death real to me. Of course, my tears weren't just for her. They were what happens when you fall through a trap door and are immersed in past grief that doesn't accept that it's past.

This ability to link Discworld to real-life experience has always been part of the power of Terry Pratchett's writing. He reminds us of our humanity, of our loves and our losses, of our bravery and our cowardice and he helps us accept ourselves and each other for what we are.

Yet as I got further through the book, I begin to feel the story losing its grip on my imagination. It's a good story but reading gave me an experience broadly equivalent to when you see actors doing a first read-through of a script, everything is there except it isn't living up to its potential.

Reading this almost-but-not-quite-finished book gave me pleasure but it also made me aware of just how much I miss Terry Pratchett.

This is a complicated book to review. There’s a part of me that wants to “go easy” on Pratchett because this was his final novel and a posthumous publication, and to say that it was brilliant, perfection, the best Discworld novel of them all. But I owe Pratchett objectivity, I think, and it’s hard to tamp down the urges. I will probably fail at points. That said, this is a good read and on par with the other Tiffany Aching books, except slightly better because the Tiffany books, in a way, come full circle.

It’s been a long time since I read a Discworld novel for the first time and it was lovely to not only revisit the characters, but to sink back into Pratchett’s narrative style. Everyone who needs a moment gets their moment. There’s a lightness and a darkness and no spare lines. It definitely feels like a final book, though. So much of the tone and story is about goodbyes and last hurrahs, and what isn’t, is about change in general. It was the perfect mood, given the circumstances.

I loved seeing Tiffany truly come into her own here, though of course she has a lot to deal with as she’s doing so. It’s not Awesome Tiffany right from the start. The way she solves her problem of being stretched too thinly and trying to be all things to all people—something that’s plagued her through at least a couple books—is great and plays into the theme of the book and, possibly, those of the few previous ones in the Disc as a whole.

I could say a lot more about the themes of the book, the way it works to wrap the series up, how the characters develop and this book integrates with the wider Disc in ways I wasn’t expecting, but that’s spoilers so I won’t. I will say, though, for those of you who know about Giant Spoilery Thing: don’t worry. S’good, I promise.

That said, there are uneven moments and gaps in the story. There’s a new character who drops almost completely out for a chunk of it. There are things that could’ve been explained a little more and could’ve lent themselves to more jokes, I’m sure. There’s one part that feels almost frenzied, with the number of things happening all at once. But I know this wasn’t an entirely finished novel and that Pratchett wasn’t at the peak of his powers, and they’re small things that really didn’t lessen my enjoyment. (It helps that this is middle grade or something like it, and that reading level works differently to begin with.)

I’m glad I read it. I’m glad I really liked it, because I worried with all the expectations of The Last Discworld Novel that I wouldn’t. I’m also glad that I waited as long as I did to read it, because I’m not sure I’d have been in the right headspace. Reading this while still in mourning would’ve been … something. And I’m so glad I can heartily recommend it, too. It’s not a perfect book, it was never going to be, but it’s exactly what the series needed to cap it off.

To bear in mind: Might make you cry a little.

...
But in The Shepherd's Crown, I've come to realize what it is about these books that makes them so special and endeared them so well to Pratchett's own heart: it's their compassion.
...
 
But Shepherd's Crown is still recognizably Pratchett, from the giggle-fit-inducing footnotes to the stern moral message about selflessness, empathy and caring for others. And there's just as much of a moral stance in the way the book addresses the death of a longtime pillar of the Discworld: People around the Disc sense that something pivotal has happened. They stop to acknowledge the gravity of the moment. They pay their respects. And then they return to their lives.
 
Pratchett, with his sardonic inventiveness, social satire, play on language, deep feeling for landscape and love of what is best in human nature, had less critical praise than he deserved. His heroes and heroines are not royalty in disguise, but thieves, con-men, shepherds, soldiers and midwives. In his championing of the ordinary, the sensible and the slightly silly he went against the grain – and never more so than in creating Tiffany Aching.
 
Above all, though, “The Shepherd’s Crown” — like all of Pratchett’s fiction — stresses the importance of helping others. Beyond this, I think that Pratchett’s farewell advice would be to follow his witches’ sensible principle: “Just do the work you find in front of you and enjoy yourself.”
 
Nothing in Pratchett stays still and his inventive energy, book after book after book, is astounding. Yet, as I say, the increasing complexity of the characters is accompanied by an increasing likableness as well as interest.
