Equal Rites

Equal Rites  - Terry Pratchett

This one just falls a little flat for me. Part of it is the somewhat non-cannon aspect and part of it is just the resolution and wrap-up of the story. I don't recall another example where Pratchett wraps up a couple of main characters' lives in a single paragraph. He usually demonstrates more of an understanding that life isn't neat like that.
