And Grimma said, We have two choices. We can run, or we hide. And they said, Which shall we do?
She said, We shall Fight.
A Bright New Dawn is just around the corner for thousands of tiny nomes when they move into the ruined buildings of an abandoned quarry. Or is it?
Soon strange things begin to happen. Like the tops of puddles growing hard and cold, and the water coming down from the sky in frozen bits, Then humans appear and they really mess everything up. The quarry is to re-opened, and the nomes must fight to defend their new home. But how long will they be able to keep the humans at bay - even with the help of the monster Jekub?
Critique: Terry Pratchett is in fine fantasy fettle in this, the Second Book of the Nomes, as he takes us on another tour of the world according to the nomes who were rescued from death and destruction on the back of a lorry in Truckers, but now have to begin the real battle for survival Outside. As Winter rages in the quarry where the nomes have made their new home, the tribes start to bicker amongst themselves. But the everyday squabbling of the nomes is nothing compared to the Great Battle they will have to fight to save the quarry, and it is the intrepid Masklin who once again steps in to save the nomes from destruction by Humans.
An absolute treat, Diggers is as fiery and fantastical as Truckers yet moves on apace as the absurd and the ridiculous join forces to present a totally hilarious and quite wonderful adventure story.--Susan Harrison
