Moving Pictures, by Terry Pratchett

2 stars

Considering the subject matter – Hollywood (or ‘Holy Wood’) comes to the Discworld - I thought I was going to love Moving Pictures. However, it seems that reading two Discworld books back-to-back was a mistake, as I found myself soon swinging from being amused and a wee bit delighted with Eric to barely smirking and rather tired of this.

The colourful cast that supports the two bland leads are fairly amusing although some soon started to grate, and while there were tons of nods to classic movies, everything felt a little too broadly sketched for me to really appreciate it.
