It wasn't a thing, it was a bit of shaped sky.

Somewhere in a place so far up that there is no down, a ship is waiting to take the nomes home, back to wherever they came from. And one nome, Masklin, knows that they've got to try and contact the ship.

It means going to Florida (wherever that is), then getting to the launch of a communications satellite (whatever that is). A ridiculous plan. Impossible. But Masklin doesn't know this, so he tries to do it anyway. And the first step is to try and hitch a ride on a new kind of truck, a truck with wings.

This is the third book in the Bromeliad Trilogy.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Greg | 2/3/2014

    " A great wrap-up for the series and one that will have you cheering for the nomes... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kyrie | 2/1/2014

    " If the Muppets filmed this one, it'd be Nommmmmes in Spaaaaace. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elizabeth | 1/22/2014

    " Agnosticism and puns. Enough to make me laugh and love this book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Margaretmoller | 1/4/2014

    " Terry Pratchett has such a knack for combining humor and peril. Even in the nomes' most stressful circumstances, I'd find myself laughing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Susan Ferguson | 1/4/2014

    " I quite enjoyed this ending to the Bromeliad trilogy. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Florbela | 1/3/2014

    " Great trilogy by Terry Prachett!!! I think it would be a very good idea for him to write some more about the gnomes and their journey to their home planet :-) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 John | 1/1/2014

    " Good fun! Plods along with cly on its boots, but none the less charming book of wee men tring to get to Florida "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chrystal | 11/5/2013

    " My husband is a Terry Pratchett fan and I've read many of his books to help us relate to each other. It is fun to see the different style and personality of science fiction. It took me a while to catch on to his sense of humor, but now I laugh out loud while I read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Qt | 11/3/2013

    " Just as good as the first two books! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Robert | 10/28/2013

    " This is the book where The Thing becomes a memorable, enjoyable-to-read character. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amanda | 10/17/2013

    " I don't think I have read anything by Pratchett that I didn't give 5 stars to but I really loved this little series! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Leaf | 10/10/2013

    " I loved the whole series and thought this was the perfect ending. Masklin is easily one of the likable characters I've read. The one thing I didn't really get was the introduction of Pion. He didn't seem important in any way, in my opinion. But nonetheless, a great book. And trilogy! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 David Maurer | 10/4/2013

    " I never understand why they call some Pratchett books "children's literature" and others as "adult". I see no difference between the two. Even as far back as this early work, Pratchett's sense, sensibilities, humor, and voice are fully developed. There is no better writer alive today. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tammy | 10/2/2013

    " I want more of the story. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Eric | 9/23/2013

    " A very satisfying and hilarious conclusion to the Bromeliad Trilogy. This book chronicles the adventures of Masklin and his companions just after they left the quarry. I only wish the book had been longer. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sally | 7/8/2013

    " What a great, sweet, funny book, and perfect ending to the trilogy. I love Terry Pratchett's sense of humour. The image in my head from the last line has stuck with me- but I don't want to give the ending away! Read it! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Erastes | 6/9/2013

    " Very enjoyable, but a bit light. Probably wouldn't re-read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sandra Strange | 5/30/2013

    " Typical Pratchett: funny, insightful, fun and wildly creative, this third book in his trilogy deals with the four inch high nomes and their struggle to make their way to Florida and the space shuttle, guided by the mysterious, all knowing Thing. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carol | 2/22/2013

    " I picked these up in a three in one volume. I have yet to read a Terry Pratchett book that I didn't like. These were fun! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Courtney Conant | 2/20/2013

    " A great achievement for all Gnomekind! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anshuman | 11/5/2012

    " Really funny book. Must read the trilogy in order. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Yvensong | 9/9/2012

    " A delightful ending for the trilogy. Like many of the others here, love the last line of the book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jess | 3/28/2012

    " Whimsical end to a fantastic tale, I could only wish it would carry on with more adventures from the 4 inch tall Nomes. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dom | 2/14/2012

    " Not as good as Truckers but more interesting than Diggers. Possibly cos the characters are more interesting. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Judie Holliday | 12/13/2011

    " Listened to this one with my girls (as with Truckers and Diggers). A great end to the trilogy with room for more, should Pratchett please. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Charity | 9/15/2011

    " Wonderfully fun. I enjoyed dashing aroung with the nomes. A quest and the discovery of something bigger... than humans even. Another way to think about the concept of the number one. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Knox Bodenstein | 8/19/2011

    " Not as good as the first two in the series, but still very entertaining. It is Terry Pratchett after all..... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Terry | 8/3/2011

    " A fun trilogy for both Kids and Adults "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Peter Dolezal | 6/7/2011

    " Good end of this trilogy. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Susan | 5/9/2011

    " This, in my opinion, is Terry Pratchett's masterpiece. It's supposedly a children's book, but the themes are definitely beyond what most children can comprehend. They are beyond what most adults can understand. It's a children's book so it's funny and cute. Don't be fooled. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Watoosa | 2/19/2011

    " I love everything I've read by TP, but there was something about this book by him, as with The Amazing Maurice, that I just really took to heart. Also, very funny. Sophisticated ideas without being high-falutin'. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Heather | 9/9/2010

    " Why have I put off reading Pratchetts early kids' books for so long? I enjoyed this a lot more than I expected to. Sure, it isn't up to his more recent stuff, but it's a lot better than early Discworld. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brittany | 7/25/2009

    " Pratchett tells the story of gnomes from outside who meet gnomes in a department store. They escape into the outside world and try to find a safe place from people. They were fun books, but the first one was the best. "
