Review quote

"The great Terry Pratchett, whose wit is metaphysical, who creates an energetic and lively secondary world, who has a multifarious genius for strong parody as opposed to derivative manipulation of past motifs, who deals with death with startling originality. Who writes amazing sentences."--A.S. Byatt in "The New York Times""A passion for language, wordplay and puns bursts from the pages."--Daily Telegraph "A great Pratchett strength is the sense that if the jokes were dropped there would still bea good, engaging fantasy thriller here." --"The Independent""Fantastically inventive and humorous fantasy adventure. Fans will be sky high." --"The Sunday Times""Pratchett's ear for dialogue is superb... His deep feeling for landscape, animals, kindness and courage make his adventures deeply satisfying as well as clever."--Amanda Craig, "The Times"show more
