I think I was expecting that, in a way. It's a lot like Raising Steam, in that it feels like a farewell tour (and it's lacking some of the wry wordplay that characterised earlier books).

As the afterword says, it's not quite the book we would have received if Sir Terry Pratchett hadn't died this year. It's not Edwin Drood - it has a beginning, a middle and an end - but not every question is answered.

And it's a very definite goodbye. To Terry, to the Discworld as a whole, and to some much-loved characters.
