Meh. Not one of his best efforts. I found it pretty boring, and I expected more drawings, diagrams, pictures, etc. to accompany the text. It has the feel of a much older book, though it was published in 2010.

A bit simple but pleasant book, which could have dug a lot deeper to give insight but still worth an airplane read.

An interesting idea and, after I got used to the odd flow of the Narrativium, it was one that worked well. Thoroughly enjoyed it and look forward to the sequels.

The "science of" chapters are filled with anti-semitism and other concerning opinions about oppressed peoples. Which was very disappointing, because the story chapters were entertaining.
Won't be reading another Pratchett book.
