Book Review: Nation by Terry Pratchett

*There's still time to enter my very first giveaway, click here to enter!*

Nationis the story of Mau and Daphne (also called Ermintrude, but really, who would want that name?) After a huge wave devastates Mau's island and wrecks Daphne's ship, the two of them must fight the ghosts of their past and the terrors of being alone, but together they can be the start of a new Nation.


The book started out kind of slow for me, even with Pratchett's sarcastic humor scattered throughout. However, even if a lot of the story was more psychological in nature than actual things happening, it became more interesting. I really enjoyed Mau's internal struggles with his religious thoughts and his realistic ones. It became a very well-crafted coming-of-age story for both Mau and Daphne.
