The american edition has them too - I've heard merkins complaining that publishers think they need help reading, so they added chapters...
Me - I just think he got used to chapters from the Tiffany Aching books.

And. What's wrong with chapters? Many of my favorite authors use em, and they can actually give a book extra meaning, merely by where the break is, or the title, or a quote...

nothing wrong with them at all - it's just not having them has been a trademark of Terry's adult books, so I was surprised.
But he's embraced them with both hands - not only chapter titles but also summaries at the start of each chapter - very Victorian in feel- I liked it - once I recovered from the shock:-)
