"Changing was necessary. Change was right. He was all in favour of change. What he was dead against was things not staying the same. " I think most of us have felt like Masklin at times. And that is the strength of Pratchett's characters. The nomes may be very different to the humans in some ways, but in others we are just the same and can identify with them and their problems. Another genius story from Sir Terry.
