Description

"Outside! What's it like?" Masklin looked blank. "Well," he said. "It's sort of big."

To the thousands of tiny nomes who live under the floorboards of a large department store, there is no outside. Things like day and night, sun and rain are just daft old legends.

Then a devastating piece of news shatters their existence: the Store, their whole world, is to be demolished. It's up to Masklin, one of the last nomes to come into the Store, to mastermind an unbelievable escape plan that will take all the nomes into the dangers of the great Outside.

This is the first book in the Bromeliad Trilogy.

Critiques

"Filled with wry humor that calls into question the nomes' blind faith in [the Store], the novel encourages readers to ponder the larger issues of truth in their own lives." ( Children's Literature)

Great fun w/an edge - classic Pratchett

As a long-time Discworld fan, I hesitated for years over whether to try Pratchett's "younger" books. I shouldn't have! They're just as funny, perhaps a slightly lighter and certainly a quicker read, but well worth the time and credits. (If reading to or with kids I can imagine kids and adults both getting a great laugh out of them, just probably preferring slightly different jokes!) Since TP is apparently unable to write anything without a philosophical/satirical edge, the trilogy touches on religion, the psychology of leadership and group behavior, xenophobia, consumerism and more.

Unlike another reviewer, I think Briggs did a brilliant job reading this, with funny and appropriate voices. I especially enjoyed the way he intoned the selections from The Book of Nome at the start of each chapter.

Absolutely delightful

My first foray into the famous and popular Terry Pratchett's work. This wonderful story of gnomes living in a dying department store on Earth, not knowing their universe was once MUCH larger than that, is chock full of chuckle and guffaw moments, and a wonderfully crafted story. I'll be going back for the next books in this trilogy for sure.

Ok, but not brilliant

This series is nice, but it is not compelling. While I normally admire Stephen Briggs' performances in the other Discworld books, in this series, he does not vary his voice and so I keep hearing the voice of Granny Weatherwax from the lips of a different character.

A great story, and a really good narrator.

The trilogy of the bromeliad is just fun to read. But this first book is my favorite. It brings a smile on my face listening to this book, and often a laugh out loud. The narration is really good, and adds an extra to the book.

Awesome!!!

Would you consider the audio edition of Truckers to be better than the print version?

We have a rule in our house: Read it first the, if you like the story, get it on audio book. There is something about someone else reading the book that makes you notice things you missed when you read the book.

What does Stephen Briggs bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Stephen Briggs makes the story come to life.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes

Dipping my toe into Pratchett.

This was a phenomenal piece. Pratchett’s skill for language, of which I’ve seen exerts for years, is on display here. None culture is a mirror to our own. The narrator gives a great show with voices for the majority of characters. Dorcus is my favorite.

One of the finest children's trilogies

The bromiliad trilogy Is probably my favorite work of Terry Pratchetts. Even of all his discord books I believe this trilogy is probably the best of his children's works. I hope that every child you care about gets a copy of this trilogy it is one of the most educational and entertaining series I have ever read.

Great Pratchett as always!

I Listened to this book while on a trip with my 8 year old son. We both greatly enjoyed it. I have introduced him to some of the Diskworld pantheon but a lot of the content goes over his head. The books in this series are short enough to keep his attention and have really helped increase his vocabulary. I have been reading and listening to Terry Pratchett books since I was a teenager and have always loved his books. I didn't buy this series until now because they were so short, but I am glad that I did because they were a great listen on our trip, and we almost finished all three books!
