Moving Pictures

Title: Moving Pictures
Author: Terry Pratchett
Series: Discworld
Genre: Fantasy/ Comedy Fiction
Audience: Adult
Format: Kindle

From Goodreads: The alchemists of the Discworld have discovered the magic of the silver screen. But what is the dark secret of Holy Wood Hill? It’s up to Victor Tugelbend (“Can’t sing. Can’t dance. Can handle a sword a little”) and Theda Withel (“I come from a little town you’ve probably never heard of”) to find out.

What I thought: One of the things I love about Pratchett is his ability to take the ordinary and stand it completely on it's head!
In Moving Pictures Pratchett takes a swipe at the unreality of Hollywood - or Holy Wood. A place where dreams are made and broken. People from all over the disc are being drawn there for reasons they can't explain and the real question is who is controlling the actions. All done of course, with Pratchett's trademark humour. Love it!
