The third book involving Tiffany Aching and the Nac Mac Feegles the one where Tiffany dances with the Wintersmith and gets herself into the middle of the ancient romance of summer and winterI love the witches and I love the Feegles and I love Tiffany and it s always a pleasure to spend time with them And yay for Roland growing up And I loved the subplot involving Miss Treason and the slight improvement in AnnagrammaHaving said that I had serious problems with this book The most critical problem I have is that I didn t understand Tiffany getting involved in the dance in the first place It was wildly out of character for her to do something like that five minutes after someone has told her not to without asking any uestions I couldn t see why she would want to it wasn t well supported I didn t believe it And of course all the action of the book depends on that one actThe second problem is the way he s pulled the climax out of the book and used it as a prologue When I encountered it for the first time it was confusing and pointless it didn t really increase suspense because I couldn t tell what was going on And then when I began to approach its right place in the book it messed up the pacing once Tiffany went back to the Chalk I figured she would be fighting the big storm any minute and so when she sat down to make a watercolor painting I went What Doesn t she have something urgent to doThe Summer Lady hardly made an appearance until the last two chapters which seemed odd and he never explained how she came to be imprisoned in the underworld in the first place which made her rescue seem a little less a part of the storyThe eight year old has read it and she thinks it s hilarious2007 Locus poll 1 YA SFF

Read & Download Å Wintersmith ´ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF Read & Download ´ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF Ý Terry Pratchett Terry Pratchett Ý 8 Download Rvetavalt külma armastusega hakkama saamine on juba iseenesest kolmeteistkümneaastase Tiffany jaoks üsna keeruline aga lisaks tuleb tal hoolitseda oma igapäevaste tööde ja tegemiste eest Kui ta aga oma suhteid Talvesep. Tiffany Aching is nearly thirteen years old and enduring her toughest apprenticeship yet Miss Treason lives in a lonely cottage on the forested mountainside she s blind and deaf and 113 years old and borrows the eyes and ears of the creatures around her to see and hear better than those who rely on their own senses She decorates her house with gruesome stereotypical witch memorabilia to intimidate her visitors Most girls don t last a day serving Miss Treason Tiffany has been there over a monthTiffany has been her sensible self all this time but she is also a teenager now and inevitably even she will have moments when good sense eludes her One of these is fatefulMiss Treason takes her young apprentice to watch the Dark Morris dancers on the mountain This troupe of men dance a jig on each euinox to welcome the coming summer or winter The superstitious believe that the cycle of the year is disrupted should anything unplanned occur during this ritual The music gets into Tiffany s blood and she leaps among the dancers She leaves her body flying into deep space and only returns to her corporeal form when she hears two voices ask her Who are you one of them hostile the other intriguedShe has collided with the Summer Lady and the Wintersmith She and the goddess have to an extent merged and now the god of snow and ice is obsessed with herAs the lovesick Wintersmith scatters unseasonable snow across the land and wonders why this strange human girl flees his advances Tiffany struggles to reconcile her sense of duty which commands her to drive him away and save the farms with her newly awakened curiosity about this awkward clueless creature who is blizzard and boy in one But Tiffany is not alone She has allies in the senior witches particularly Granny Weatherwax Miss Tick and Nanny Ogg She has her friend Roland back on the Chalk who writes content free letters that are just an excuse to communicate with her She has the ferocious Feegles who will charge into Hell itself for her and promptly get kicked out for boozing up the place andor singing And she has Horace the cheese Don t mess with HoraceContent Advisory Violence The Feegles attack things The Wintersmith unleashes snowstorms and brings about the deaths of humans or animals who can t find shelter but it must be understood that he doesn t do this maliciously details later Some of the casualties are lambs whom Tiffany and the other Chalk dwellers bring inside and try to revive No gore or suffering shown Sex The Feegles try to help Tiffany deal with the Wintersmith by getting her a romance novel from the travelling library She figures out that gathering nuts is a euphemism and dismisses the book as a silly inaccurate image of pastoral life Her brain tells her to hate the Wintersmith and show him no mercy but her heart and hormones inform her that being ardently pursued by a handsome elemental who can make her bouuets of ice roses is prettycoolNanny Ogg says that as a young lass she convinced a young man not to commit suicide because he had a cute butt Language Nothing but crivens from the Feegles Substance Abuse The Feegles are pretty sloshed for most of the book as per usual Death warns them not to stay too long in the Underworld because I uote WE RE STILL PICKING UP ALL THE BOTTLES FROM LAST TIME YOU WERE HERE Nightmare Fuel Roland and the Feegles confront some scary critters in the Underworld including a demon with hundreds of fangs that keeps looking at itself in a shard of glass and whimpering I see you Snow ueen referenceThe Wintersmith can be scary by accident The first time he physically manifests he doesn t know what he s doing and can only make his eyes and hand visible to Tiffany Even once he gets the hang of a human body something s a bit off He can sing all the parts of an opera including the orchestra at once and if he doesn t concentrate on his body his limbs might fall off Potty Humor The Wintersmith struggles with the concept of eating He ingests some sausages at an inn and then asks the innkeeper s daughter Now what do I do with them She replies That s not my place to say sir ConclusionsThe adventures of Tiffany Aching and her wee free friends continue to delight Pratchett added detail and depth to his concept of witches This book showcases a milestone for Tiffany and expands the world of the stories bringing in gods and goddesses and seasonal change There s a lot of classical influence here particularly from the myths of Hades and Persephone and Orpheus and Eurydice This book forms an interesting contrast with Alison Croggon s The Riddle second in the Pellinore series which I recently reviewed In both a powerful young woman undergoes a chastely rendered sexual awakening with the help of a wintry sorcerermale spirit who feels possessive of her She can t stay with him she flees his ice palace because it s the right thing to do and yet part of her feels terrible for having to do itArkan from The Riddle is ostensibly much closer to being human than the Wintersmith is but he really seems as cruel and rapacious as a glacier Yet Croggon seemed to attribute emotion and humanity to him than he was capable of feelingThis novel much as I love it has the opposite problem The Wintersmith while he isn t human and can t uite grasp what it is to be one should get an A for effort He s an innocent menace causing damage and destruction without realizing or understanding it And Pratchett actually gives the poor creature less sympathy than he deserves I felt only fleeting pity for Arkan after Maerad fled from him but I wanted to give the Wintersmith a hug So did Tiffany but she had to obey the story she was trapped in both the in universe myth and the book containing it From Pratchett s perspective human and divine natural and supernatural cannot mix without bringing disaster There is no hope of anyone bridging the two worlds The Wintersmith makes an adorable earnest effort to become like Tiffany and wed her but ultimately according to the book he is a different substance from her and ne er the twain shall meetThis bothers me I m not saying that the story should necessarily have ended differently but it certainly could have The idea of a god becoming close to human to marry a mortal and the mortal against her will at first taking on and attributes of a goddess to level with him would have been fascinating Tiffany could have represented a leap in Discworld theology from abstract and capricious deities with no particular regard for lesser life forms to compassionate gods who loved and cared for humans because they were human or had been Ah well What else is fanfiction forThe mythology and symbolism have made this my favorite installment in one of my favorite series
