DescriptionSAM VIMES IS A MAN ON THE RUN. YESTERDAY HE WAS A DUKE, A CHIEF OF POLICE AND THE AMBASSADOR TO THE MYSERIOUS, FAT-RICH COUNTRY OF UBERWALD. Now he has nothing but his native wit and the gloomy trousers of Uncle Vanya (don't ask). It's snowing. It's freezing. And if he can't make it through the forest to civilization there's going to be a terrible war. But there are monsters on his trail. They're bright. They're fast. They're werewolves - and they're catching up. The Fifth Elephant is Terry Pratchett's latest instalment in the Discworld cycle, this time starring dwarfs, diplomacy, intrigue and big lumps of fat.

Reviews for The Fifth Elephant
More depth to Night Watch characters.....
"This novel is a little longer than his other novels, and at times you do feel it. Nonetheless, I thought this was briliiant in developing the background behind Angua and her relationship with Carrot also develops in this. Vimes is brilliant in this as ever, and its nice to seem more of Sybil for a change. The change of scenery also makes a good storyline. Much like Jingo there is some clever politics involved, which allows the story to progress. All in all a brilliant read, and interesting to find out more about the characters we all know and love!
