So what did everyone think of this book? I do have a lot of interest in science and as I love Discworld, I just had to read it. It did take me quite a lot longer to get through than the average Discworld book though, as it took a while to get all the sciency stuff through my system. I did think it was fantastic though, all the points it brought up as to how the universe came into being and evolution and so forth were very interesting indeed and I love the way all the Wizards were used in it, I am currently reading the second one at the moment. Not easy for me to read (due to the science) but it is great stuff. I love the proposal of a space elevator as the next step forward for the human race. It's fascinating.
