  • The trouble with having an open mind, of course, is that people will insist on coming along and trying to put things in it.Second part of The Nome Trilogy is just as fun as the first one I loved reading again about this character and this world Pratchett created I also loved that Diggers focused on Dorcas character because he s currently my favorite character of the series And the only reason I m giving this 4 stars is because I feel like the overall story of the Truckers was a bit better than [...]


  • Another great book in the series what can I really say that was not started with Truckers but I will say this the story is a little maturer this time characters seem to have grown up as well as the storyline they inhabit The tale is still enthralling to young and old and still has the sense of mischief that Pratchett is so famous for.


  • A good, fun follow up to TRUCKERS Essentially, this trilogy is the Terry Pratchett version of THE BORROWERS, told in his own inimitable style and, of course, with plenty of humour along the way.I m not the ideal target market for this book unlike the Discworld novels, it s clearly aimed at younger readers but nevertheless it s a quirky and exceptionally fast paced read I had it polished off after only a couple of sessions.The story picks directly up from DIGGERS and, as far as I can tell, the ev [...]




  • A good book that picks up from the first of the trilogy, Truckers, six months down the line Characters have developed, some are smarter and are teaching others how to read, others are less than happy at the shock of how the outside world works This had some good moments, the one that really stands out are that some of the nomes who came from the store still believing in Arnold Bros est 1905 and that he will guide all nomes to a safer way of living This was clearly Pratchett s way of portraying r [...]


  • Quick review from memory before I re read and re review at a later date Little memory of the series let alone the book, though I recall them stealing a lorry of some sort and heading off for the promise lands some greenery A great series to be re read.


  • Enjoyed this one too The Nomes find themselves living in an old, abandoned quarry but they realise it isn t going to stay abandoned much longer because the humans want the rocks to build new roads Masklin, Gurder and a few others go off looking for Grandson 39 in Florida juice you kind of need to read it to get the reference but also because Masklin knows he will be flying on a plane and The Thing has told him they originally came from out space The last we see of these fellows is heading off to [...]


  • The in between bookNow that Masklin and Torrit have left to explore the place where those big metal things take off into the air, Grimma has to fend for herself That is, she has to take care of the nomes that have taken shelter at the quarry But they are not alone A very insistent human being is trying to invade their place Grimma has to be creative to keep that pesky big annoyances away, but is afraid that they ultimately will have to flee to The Cottage Luckily Dorcas, the techno geek of the n [...]


  • 3.5 starsVery enjoyable I love how the nomes have a naive innocence about them This instalment finds them trying to make a home in the quarry, only to find out they may have to move After the store, some younger nomes have had families and are reluctant for change Grimma is a feminist, Masklin wanders off with some others to search for Arnold Bros grandson, a nome with power in his sights comes to the forefront, and a whole lot shenanigans happen Extremely enjoyable read Easy and humerous.


  • Less exciting then the first, the Outside and Store nomes have now settled down in a semi permanent home in a quarry But all is not to be, as humans interfere with the nomes plan, and their homes are placed in jeopardy This is a continuation of the first book Not as fun, but still a good read.

  • We don t know where we re going, she thought The only important thing is to go Masklin was right This isn t our world Perhaps we should have talked to the humans, she said aloud No, you were right, said Dorcas In this world everything belongs to the humans and we would belong to them, too There wouldn t be any room for us to be us Diggers is the delightful continuation to the trilogy begun by Truckers As you would expect from a Pratchett book, there s plenty of zaniness action, with the final ac [...]


  • The meat and heart of a truly great storyI ve always had a fondness for middle books it s where the author has gotten through the exposition which, however skillfully handled and Pratchett got mad skills is hopefully not the most interesting thing about a book, or it s not a story but an almanac , and still has enough room to stretch their wings before the work of wrapping it all up begins.This is therefore my favorite bit of The Bromeliad, which should be your favorite all ages trilogy.It s a s [...]


  • I could ve done without the women shouldn t do men s jobs plotline, but at least contradicting it gave us a few excellent central female characters That s mostly what kept me from loving it enough for 5 stars, although it looks like this was written in 1990, which was kinda the heyday of anything you can do I can do better in children s media I m too old for this book, I know, but the concept remains comedic and creative I have no idea how to classify it Pratchett is excellent, generally, in eve [...]


  • Noin ekat kaksi kolmasosaa t st oli v h n tyls hk jos ilke olisin niin sanoisin ett tuntui samalta kuin seuraisi maalin kuivumista , mutta loppuosa oli sit kin kovempaa Tykk sin t ss varsinkin Terrylle ominaisista syv llisist keloista, t m jotenkin osasi saada lukijansa symppaamaan milloin mit kin zombeja, luurankoja, rottia ja t ss tapauksessa er nlaisia tonttuja mit lie mini ihmisi Tykk n my s t n sarjan hieman odottamattomasta scifistisest puolesta N m ovat lasten kirjoja, mutta jotenkin tunt [...]


  • The nomes from the Store are now with the Outside nomes The Drivers have taken some power Nisodemus tries to convince evreyone that the other leaders are incompetent The nomes almost get run over by a train They rope up a human and leave a message to leave them alone They even drive a John Deere truck.


  • This is the second book of a series, the first book is Truckers, which I have also written a review about This book is all about Gnomes and how they live in the world It s a very interesting book and I would recommend it to anyone over 10, the author uses a lot of confusing words but makes a very good desceription of what is happening and how everything looks This is an AMAZING book


  • Yep just as good as the first one Not as self contained like a part 1 of 2 which isn t a problem The usual Terry goodness from around this time with wonderful ways of phrasing things And a good story.


  • The Nomes may only be four inches tall, with limited reading and writing abilities, but when Grimma, the cleverest of the Nomes, brought up the Geneva Convention, I laughed Terry Pratchett was a genius and his books are so well written Extremely witty and original.


  • Segunda parte de la trilog a, igual de entretenida que la primera En el Exterior hay muchos m s peligros que en La Tienda y los gnomos siguen siendo las mismas curiosas criaturas que entienden el mundo a su manera.


  • I was half way through this story before I realised I hadn t read the first book However I pressed on and found a cute little story, and I will catch up with volume 1 soon
