First off I read the Bromeliad trilogy written by Terry Pratchett Truckers Diggers and Wings Truckers was my favourite book getting to know the Nomes and the way they lived in the Store and how they saw humans and Arnold Bros est 1905 P I liked Diggers least because three of my favourite characters hardly participated in it but were thankfully fully present in Wings I did like the way the ladies came up for themselves though P And finally in Wings the whole voyage they take and their coming home The thing which struck me was how the Nomes thought they were so different from humans but in so many ways they are so much the same the way they interact among each other and what is important to them It s so much like Pterry to make a world which seems so different at first glance but is really just a bit distorted mirror of our own society Le Corbusier. meubles et interieurs 1905–1965 voyage they take and their coming home The thing which struck me was how the Nomes thought they were so different from humans but in so many ways they are so much the same the way they interact among each other and what is important to them It s so much like Pterry to make a world which seems so different at first glance but is really just a bit distorted mirror of our own society

Well f this I had written a lengthy review but clicked outside the box and poof gone All for nothingEvery book is a page turner reads very fluently and certainly wasn t written for children Well maybe but I doubt they fully understand Pratchett s humour his take on life religion vs science politics eual rights migration and His classic themes are woven into the story which is actually one big story cut in three It s about nomes little people Not pixies no You have nomes on the Outside and nomes n the Store founded by Arnold Bros est 1905 The latter is a sort of god for the Store nomes The Store is their world with the planet and the lights being the sky the stars the sun Seasons are determined by sales periods with their respective slogans The Store nomes have occupied every department which works like a nation own rules own leader They do have an abbot for the religious position just like humans have a pope for example Store nomes have never seen the sun never felt the rain The Outside nomes are very much accustomed to the real seasons and weather typesWomen have no rights aren t even allowed to learn to read as this could overheat their brains In contrast the Floridians nomes of Florida also the name of some fruit juice apparently are lead by a female Contrast in male female domination and rightsOne day a large group of Outside nomes come into the Store to join their Inside fellows whom they ve never met by the way And so the adventure begins where will they stay Who will guide and educate them into the world of the Store Another theme migration In this day and age even actual than ever even if the books were written about 30 years ago As the Store is to close forever suddenly both nome populations must work together for their survivalWhat can you expect Pure entertainment Playing with the English language signs slogans names products everything is taken literally or twisted around Space travel More respect for little people A humanistic view on life A lighter Pratchett when it comes to convictions To me it s much later that he became determined in his beliefsAnyway in short The Bromeliad is one of Pratchett s finest works If you can get the omnibus otherwise get the three books Truckers Diggers Wings themselvesIn the same vein I can recommend his other book on little people The Carpet People as you can read here Some details about the books including spoilersview spoilerThe first book also as the cover shows has something to do with trucks Nomes have to leave the Store as it will be demolished Everything Must Go a sign taken literally even if it means something else But nomes have a way of taking things literally Or rather Pratchett has shown how skilled he was in the English language Playing with words be them signs slogans names places is one very important ingredient in this seriesReligion is key here To the Store nomes and especially their leaders and abbot there is no Outside only the Store is what matters and is real is divine So yes trucks Nomes become truckers as they see no alternative but to borrow a truck to leave the Store when news comes that the Store will be closed forever How they manage it Through collaboration and coordination and a lot of trial and error But that s nomes for youThe second book deals with the nomes having arrived at a uarry with some shed nearby where they can hidestore the books and food they brought along Not long afterwards humans re opn the uarry But luckily there s Jekub a digging machine to come to the rescue and with which after a fierce battle our nomes manage to flee Meanwhile Masklin Gurder and Angalo are at the airport for Grandson 39 whom they ve seen in a newspaper article regarding the launching of a new satellite by the corporation that also owns Arnold Bros est 1905 As there s no real leader with Masklin and co being gone one of the religious Store nomes fills that void Nisodemus But not for long as our nomes have to fight and flee for their livesThe Outside nomes and precisely Masklin had a black box called Thing Thing can send out signals communicate with other computers and devices and can translate nomish into human and vice versa Nomes have always avoided humans for fear of being turned into pixies or maybe even lose their lives although the Outside nomes were afraid of being eaten by wolves and alikeThe third book Wings focuses on the contact with space Thing said the nomes were once dropped on Earth by a spaceship and he was going to call upon the ship to bring the nomes hme again hence the 3 aforementioned nomes needing to be at the launch of the satellite It s also in this book that human contact with especially Grandson 39 is established Not for long as a ship was summoned and drivenflown by Angalo who loves driving machinesGurder a Store nome had to review his belief his worldview now that he had spent a considerable amount of time Outside and had seen Grandson 39 a deity until then And would you know There were not only nomes out there Floridians but Grandson 39 had always wanted to believe nomes existed and now saw his belief confirmed The belief was thus reciprocal Isn t this sweet Gurder
