Interesting background, but not the most exciting read,

This review is from: The Folklore of Discworld (Kindle Edition)
The Folklore of Discworld looks at the Earthly sources (or similarities) of the "folkloric" aspects of Terry Pratchett's Discworld universe. It alternates quotes from the series with scholarly text about similar tales, legends and customs that can be found on Earth. It made me appreciate Pratchett's efforts and research even more, but after about halfway through, I started to lose interest. I did finish the book, but for a while I strongly debated just putting it aside. If only the non-Pratchett writing was half as entertaining as Pratchett's own.
