The Company builds planets. Kin Arad is a high-ranking official of the Company. After twenty-one decades of living, and with the help of memory surgery, she is at the top of her profession. Discovering two of her employees have placed a fossilized plesiosaur in the wrong stratum, not to mention the fact it is holding a placard which reads 'End Nuclear Testing Now', doesn't dismay the woman who built a mountain range in the shape of her initials during her own high-spirited youth. But then came a discovery of something which did intrigue Kin Arad. A flat earth was something new...
First published in 1981, Strata is an early exploration of the idea that was to become the best-selling Discworld series.

I thought I would love Terry Pratchett and because of this, I acquired a lot of his books. Turns out, I don't really like Terry Pratchett that much. I read enough of his books now to say I find his books fairly average and slightly dull.

This book reminded me of Larry Niven's Ringworld, except the world is flat and not a ring, obviously. It had a mix of human and alien characters trotting around this unknown world, wondering how and why it was made. To be fair, this was better than Ringworld, but not by much. And sometimes, I didn't really know what was going on.

This was one of those books I forced myself through. I've still got a few more Pratchett's on my tbr pile but after them, I'm done.
