Elolvastam a Hat Full of Sky-t (Pratchett), a Wee Free Menben megismert varázslókislányról és a pictsie-kről szólt, és Granny Weatherwaxről, akit megint kicsit új oldaláról mutatott be, és jó fej új szereplők is voltak. Még érzelmesebb volt, ezen a részen például nagyon sírtam, mert valamiért úgy éreztem Pratchett elkezdett búcsúzkodni, de lehet hogy csak én kezdem gyászolni hogy egyszer majd vége lesz:

“Do you know what it feels like to be aware of every star, every blade of grass? Yes. You do. You call it ‘opening your eyes again.’ But you do it for a moment. We have done it for eternity. No sleep, no rest, just endless… endless experience, endless awareness. Of everything. All the time. How we envy you, envy you! Lucky humans, who can close your minds to the endless deeps of space! You have this thing you call… boredom? That is the rarest talent in the universe! We heard a song — it went ‘Twinkle twinkle little star….’ What power! What wondrous power! You can take a billion trillion tons of flaming matter, a furnace of unimaginable strength, and turn it into a little song for children! You build little worlds, little stories, little shells around your minds, and that keeps infinity at bay and allows you to wake up in the morning without screaming!”

De még mindig viccelődik néha, hogy oldja a hangulatot:

(Granny kritizálja Tiffany csillagos boszorkány sipkáját) “With stars, she added, and there was so much acid in the word “stars” that it would’ve melted copper and then dropped through the table and the floor and melted more copper in the cellar below.”

És a végén van igazi feelgood rész is:

(Tiffany hazaér): “She found herself filling up with joy – at the new lambs, at life, at everything. Joy is to fun what the deep sea is to a puddle. It’s a feeling inside that can hardly be contained.”

Tetszett.

Most az Ender’s game-et olvasom, az is jó csak máshogy.
