Review of The Last Continent by Terry Pratchett

Title: The Last Continent
Author: Terry Pratchett
Rating: 4/5


Rincewind and the wizards of Unseen University share this weird tale, one having to deal with a kangaroo that’s sometimes not a kangaroo, the others a bug-obsessed god (blame him for cockroaches).
While the Last Continent, known as XXXX, is a land that has never ever seen rain (or water-filled rivers for that matter), it is hard to push aside the similarities to Earth’s own Down Under (in my case, the Slightly Upper-Wester).
Even so, I found the 50 or so pages just before the ending rather repetitive in its jokes and the interaction between the wizards was lacklustre.

I still love the luggage though. Hard not to.
