Entertaining, but not one of Discworld's greatest.

Raising Steam - Terry Pratchett

I'm as big a Discworld fan as you're likely to find, but I don't rate all the books equally. There are some truly lovely moments in here and as always Moist von Lipwig is thoroughly enjoyable, but the throughline isn't as solid and the layers don't add up the way I expect them to in Pratchett's novels. An enjoyable read, but probably best to start with other Discworld books if you're looking to get the full flavor as a novice.
