Summary Nation author Terry Pratchett ☆ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF Y have no common language no common culture but together they discover some remarkable things like how to milk a pig and why spitting in beer is a good idea and must try and forge a new kind of Nation Then other sur. Terry Pratchett is a weird and wonderful writer his style is completely uniue There really is no other author uite like him and there will probably never be another a true orginal His humour is so strange but remarkably witty Some of the metaphors he uses are just plain genius This is the first Terry Pratchett book I read and I really do need to go and read some This novel takes place on a wacky island full of strange creatures and even stranger people The island s bananas are pink the trees secrete poison it has tree climbing octopus and stones that are worshipped as gods by the inhabitants Doesn t it just sound like a great place Unfortunately for Mau one of two protagonists in this novel his tribe is wiped out by a great wave that surges all nearby land He could see that the village had gone The wave had sliced it off the island A few stumps marked the place the long house had stood since for ever The wave had torn up the reef A wave like that would not have even noticed the villageOn the other hand the island itself remains intact Mau however doesn t have a soul He was completing his initiation to manhood when the wave struck he didn t get chance to finish as the initiators all died leaving his transcendence incomplete What s the poor half man to do He concocts a death wish plain and simple There s no reason to live any Well until the second protagonist s boat Sweet Jude shipwrecks her on the island Ermintrude later called Daphne is a trouserwoman a person from civilisation who is not a tribal and is defined by her culture s wearing of trousers uite funny really these people are silly trousermen and silly trouserwomen well at least they are to Mau Pratchett has created a brilliant narrative voice for Mau that is ever so evocative of his innocence and of his humorous perceptions of westerners Ermintrude almost shoots him when they first meet and the poor lad thinks the gun is a spark maker to help with building fires Is this a frown at imperialism I think so Ermintrude is also a lady who loves to use the etiuette her Grandmother has taught her uite the contrast to Mau s tribal standards After the two get over their first hilariously embarrassing attempts of communication and manage to gain a small degree of understanding of one another they must try to survive on the remains of the wonderful island No easy task considering another bunch of people wash up on island including a wise old priest a pregnant mute woman and eventually another family group This is foreshadowed by the approaching cannibalistic raiders that want to kill everyone on the island Mau and Daphne must solidify their newly forming culture with the remains of the old one and learn to surviveThis book was great The writing was superb the plot exciting and the characters well rounded and funny More importantly however Terry pratchett is an uplifting change to those novelists who take themselves too seriously I should read books like this books that are random and odd Here s a picture of a bird
