It’s so difficult for me to rate and review The Shepherd’s Crown. Being objective when discussing
the final Discworld instalment is nearly impossible. I can’t begin to discuss the plot and main events
of the book without giving this away, so I won’t. I will simply reiterate what Rob Wilkins mentioned
in the Afterword; this is a novel with a beginning, middle and an end. It is not, however, a finished
novel. There are parts of this story that are perfectly polished Pratchett, and there are other areas
that are the bare bones of his ideas yet to be teased out to their full potential.
If you enjoyed the Discworld and are a fan of the Witches, I would recommend picking this up. It
is a fitting end to the series and is much stronger and more enjoyable than the previous helpings
from the Discworld.
