    One thought on “A Hat Full of Sky

    1. Lyn

      One of Terry Pratchett’s best.I don’t often gush for a book, but this one was very good. Pratchett’s 2004 Discworld story Hat Full of Sky (and second featuring Tiffany Aching and her friends the pictsies – the Nac Mac Feegle wee free men) was a joy to read.I’d like to see this made into a film just to see how a clever and talented director handled Miss Level. Like all of Pratchett’s Discworld books, this is wryly funny and sardonically playful and he takes on some heavy themes like f [...]

      The Nac Mac Feegles hae got me tawkin' lae 'em. Crivens! It's a wee bittie story o' hags right enough, the big wee hag o' the hills bein' the verra center o' it all, but it may gi' ye a bad case o' the thinkin'.I dinna like tae stop readin'.(To the the Bigjobs: Discworld just keeps getting better and better. Keep a sharp eye out and you will see many references to other stories hidden in the telling.)

    3. Carrie

      This is technically a young adult book (and yes, I do read grown-up books, I just went on a bit of a YA tear after my Powell’s extravaganza), but the only reason for so labeling it is that the main character is a teenager. It is hard to explain how great this book is if you haven’t read any Pratchett, but, then again, why haven’t you read any Pratchett? His books about the Discworld started out a pun-filled parodies of fantasy novels, and have evolved into satires on our modern world that [...]

    4. Algernon

      Dedicated to the memory of Sir Terry Pratchett, who passed away soon after I started reading the book.I have made, over the past twenty years, many friends among the inhabitants of the wacky disc-shaped world sailing through space on the backs of four elephants, carried in their turn by a giant turtle. Starting with Rincewind, then with Sam Vimes and his Ankh-Morpork guards, Lord Vetinari, the wizards of the Unseen University, the banana loving Librarian, the sentient multi-legged Luggage, Moist [...]

    5. Juanes

      Freakin' Terry Pratchett rules. What in the world have i been doing with all my life? I have so many books to read! However i sit inspired by the bravery of Rob Anybody and, therefore, i shall fling myself head first with no helmet fearsome book at a time. A Hatful of Sky is a follow up to The Wee Free Men. It picks up just where the other left off and continues Terry's incredibly witty fantasy which clearly stand a bar above other fanatsy.

      Terry Pratchett favori yazarlarımdan biri ve her Diskdünya kitabını bitirdiğimde neden favorim olduğunu tarif etmek için farklı bir neden buluyorum. İnceleme yazmaya çalıştım bir on dakika, yazıp yazıp sildim. Söylenebilecek o kadar şey var ki kitap ve kitabın yaptığı şeyi ne kadar iyi yaptığı hakkında; ne yazsam kitabı anlatmaya yetmeyecek. Belki yarın gündüz gözüyle bir şeyler yazmayı denerim ama şimdilik bu kadar. Genel olarak Diskdünya serisini herkes okum [...]

      Tiffany Sızı'nın maceraları sürüyor; ve ilginç şekilde, insanı kendisine bağlamayı başarıyor. Bir DiskDünyasever olmasanız dahi, ilgiyle izleyebilirsiniz bu seriyi; zaten en başınabuyruk ilerleyen kitaplar da bunlar.Terry Pratchett'ın son dönemlerinde yazmaya giriştiği Tiffany Sızı serisinde dikkatimi çeken başka bir şey var: Hakiki İngiltere'ye dair, bitmek bilmez bir sevda. Zaten DiskDünya'nın en DiskDünya olmayan kısmı sanki, tüm olayların vuku bulduğu bu Te [...]

      I can not seem to convince anyone to try Discworld.Damndest thing, I would think that his great stories, great insight, and amazing humor would be an easy sell, but I can't convince most readers I know to so much as read the first page in my copy of "The Colour of Magic," even if they're voracious fantasy readers.Maybe it's the fact that I use the words "fantasy" and "funny" in the same sentence. Most fantasy writers are the most humorless artists imaginable, so it seems like the dissonance is t [...]

    9. Valerie

      For a children’s book it has more complexity than I would've expected. I remember after reading Tiffany Aching’s first book I thought it was just so strange and didn't get what was going on at the end. The climax in this one had a similar sort of the thing going but I understood it better this time around. Maybe it’s because I'm older or that Pratchett explained it easier this time, I don't know. So here we have Tiffany in the beginning of her witch training and things are not going the wa [...]

    10. Marta

      Pratchett is brilliant an witty, as usual. Tiffany is the most talented young witch - teaming up with the greatest old witch, my personal favorite, Granny Weatherwax. Deep, mystical, sandy, and very human lessons are learned. The Nac Mac Feegle never abandon Tiffany, nor Special Sheep Liniment. The quirky side characters are fun: Miss Level with her two bodies and circus past, along with Oswald, the obsessively tidy poltergeist. We also get a much more jovial version of Witch Trials than in hist [...]

      Following the resounding success of my Locus Quest, I faced a dilemma: which reading list to follow it up with? Variety is the spice of life, so I’ve decided to diversify and pursue six different lists simultaneously. This book falls into my LOCUS Y-A list.I think I’ll always have a soft-spot for imaginative young-adult speculative fiction and as the good people at Locus did such a grand job with picking their Sci-Fi winners, I’ll trust them to single out some special y-a books too.I've ne [...]

      2010 August 172004 August 20Well, Voyage of the Dawn Treader is out, and Terry Pratchett is in for the read aloud. As fond as I am of the former, I'm perfectly willing to cast it aside. Tiffany Aching is a marvelous character who thinks all the time. As does Pratchett. Unlike Lewis, Pratchett's world is rich and detailed and it works. The Nac Mac Feegle are delightful low-comedy anti-fairies and a good foil to the thoroughly mundane business of sheep-farming.As an aside, Pratchett has just descr [...]

    13. Fiona

      I was going to say, this isn't what I should have been reading - I seem to have found myself with a to-do list as long as my arm at the moment - but it's exactly what I needed.In A Hat Full of Sky, Pratchett tackles growing up in the sense of taking responsibility for things, and understanding the difference between the things you want, and the things you actually do. As someone who has spent quite a lot of the last six weeks howling "It must be so nice not to have to take the initiative/solve t [...]

      A Hat Full of Sky is the 2nd book in the Tiffany Aching subseries of Discworld. I really enjoyed this one, maybe slightly more than I enjoyed the first Tiffany Aching book. It had an equally good story, and I thought it was a bit funnier. In this book, Tiffany is now eleven and she leaves her home on the chalk for the first time so she can learn how to be a proper witch. She travels to the mountains where she’ll serve as an apprentice for a witch named Miss Level, who is a bit unusual. Meanwhi [...]

      Wee Free Men, while still entertaining, didn't catch me on reread quite like it did the first time through. A Hat Full of Sky on the other hand was pure magic and everything I remember it being. My favorite Aching book.

    16. Annemieke / A Dance with Books

      I quite enjoyed the first book of the Tiffany Aching arc of Discworld, The Wee Free Men, but A Hat Full of Sky steps it up a notch. I love how Terry Pratchett plays with words. There is a subtlety and then sometimes it is so in your face. It is a gift. Tiffany Aching is a tad different from the rest of his Discworld books as this is more of a middle grade/young adult read. It is just a bit easier to be drawn into the world I feel.In this book our Tifany is two years older and she is finally star [...]

    17. Rebecca

      Tiffany leaves home to learn the skills of a witch, grows up a little bit, is misguided by social pressure, and finds her way back. As usual for Pratchett this is so darned heartwarming. A huge part of being a witch involves helping people, even the ones that don't know they want/need it. Along the way she is opened up to a bodysnatching evil that requires some intervention from Nac Mac Feegles.Something I've never noticed about Discworld books before but realized here, Pratchett at times gives [...]

      When I found my first Tiffany Aching book (it was I shall wear Midnight and bless Terry's soul for finishing The Sheppard's Crown before he crossed the great black desert) I realized I had found a friend. There's something truly magical in the way Sir Pratchett uses words and even the smallest keen observation to make a notion so different than it was before, to make you realize something that you knew perhaps all along but hadn't seen it properly until you read these words and I think that's wh [...]

    19. Robin Stevens

      Tiffany is a fantastic heroine, and these are some of my favourite Pratchett books. I think that anyone 10+ could read and love any of his books (although you might be a bit confused about some of the jokes he makes, as I was), but these are particularly about and for kids. Re-reading them now, they're as funny and adventureous as ever. A perfect way to get into Pratchett. 8+*Please note: this review is meant as a recommendation only. Please do not use it in any marketing material, online or in [...]

      Tiffany Aching is apprenticed to Miss Level, a witch with two bodies. While under her employ, Tiffany is possessed by an evil spirit, known as a hiver. Assisted by the hilarious Nac Mac Feegles, led by the aptly named Rob Anybody, she has to exorcise this demon and then outwit this enemy that cannot be vanquished. Meanwhile, she also allies herself with Granny Weatherwax, one of the premier witches of her day. Amusing romp, like the first book in the series.

    21. Sarah Baker

      I very much aspire to be Granny Weatherwax someday. I didn't appreciate the subtleties of her in this one before, but I do now.

    22. Dakota★Magic in Every Book

      There's a reason that Terry Pratchett was such a well-known and loved writer. He's able to put into words universal feelings and experiences and weave them into a story that is funny, charming, and poignant.

    23. Sanja_Sanjalica

      Even better then the first Tiffany! The plot, the characters, everything is great. I just love the development of characters.d, of course, the Wee Free Men <3.

    24. Christopher

      A Hat Full of Sky is the next Tiffany Aching book and is set a couple of years after the previous book and is off to 'study' magic with the Witches! :D In this case though study means more observations and enhancing her skills and performing something like a flying doctors service for the local population and at the same time doing battle with a non-entity called a Hiver who really really want to Tiffany and is bent on taking her over! :DThe book also sees the return of many of the characters fr [...]

      First read: 2004Re-read: August 2015The plot: Almost two years have passed since the events of The Wee Free Men and the now eleven year old Tiffany leaves the chalk to become an apprentice witch to Miss Level. However she is not alone; she has attracted the attention of the 'hiver' - a wandering, conquering mind that is desperatly searching for its next body - and it has set its sights on Tiffany.There is so much to love in this book. Pratchett has based his ideas of witchcraft on the historical [...]

      Tiffany Aching is off to learn how to be a witch. She is going to apprentice with Miss Level, who is a witch with one mind but two bodies. Tiffany is leaving her beloved Chalk behind, but she knows she needs to learn to be a witch so she can come back and be the hag of the hills. Rob Anybody has a new kelda and Jeannie isn't too thrilled about Rob's concern for Tiffany. Afterall, Tiffany was kelda for a while and engaged to Rob even if that was just for show. But when the Nac Mac Feegle's realiz [...]

    27. Lauren

      A Hat Full of Sky is entertaining and fun read about a young witch in training in the classic fairy style. In the first Tiffany Aching book she rescues her little brother from the Fairy Queen and becomes the kelda of the wee free men. The macfeagle are not exactly like brownies in that if you leave them milk they won't help you do your chores. If you leave them whiskey they'll try to help but it won't be the sort of help you'd want. She realises she's a witch despite all prior claims by witches [...]

      We're all familiar with Alice going through the looking-glass into a topsy-turvy world, a world where she is able to look at things in a different way. Unexpectedly, Alice makes no attempt to find her own reflection: "The very first thing she did was to look whether there was a fire in the fireplace, and she was quite pleased to find that there was a real one." For a child who could make the observation "Curiouser and curiouser!" she is singularly incurious about her own reflection; perhaps she [...]

      The second Tiffany Aching book. spoilers ahead for the first one.Miss Tick has arranged for Tiffany to work for a witch, to learn the tricks of the trade. (Her parents are assured she's being hired for her skill in cheese making.) Roland, the Baron's son, is awkward and infatuated when she leaves. The Nac Mac Feegle have acquired a normal kelda, Jeannie, who married Rob Anybody and does not entirely approve of Tiffany. Hag of the hills or no, after all, she was their acting kelda and engaged to [...]
