Review of 'Snuff' on 'Goodreads'

5 stars

If anything I enjoyed it more this time round, although as in many of Terry's works there are bits that seem rushed and give me the feeling he had more to say but maybe was worried that it would make the book too long.

Anyway, it was chilling to read the racism in the light of what is going on today in Britain with Brexit and in the US with Trump. The same phrases, the same casual attitude to a 'lesser' race that the majority just don't understand.

In a way having the goblins have such amazing talents (the idea of the noble savage?) didn't really add to the story as it made you feel that we should like them not because they were thinking beings but because they were talented artists...

The book does feel disjointed at times but it still manages to make you laugh and cry on …
