Review quote

"'Funny, wise and mock heroic...The funniest and best crafted book I have read all year'" * Sunday Express * "'Like Jonathan Swift, Pratchett uses his other world to hold up a distorting mirror to our own, and like Swift he is a satirist of enormous talent ... incredibly funny ... compulsively readable'" * The Times * "'His spectacular inventiveness makes the Discworld series one of the perennial joys of modern fiction'" * Mail on Sunday * "'The great Terry Pratchett, whose wit is metaphysical, who creates an energetic and lively secondary world, who has a multifarious genius for strong parody ... who deals with death with startling originality. Who writes amazing sentences'" -- A.S. Byatt * New York Times * "'Persistently amusing, good-hearted and shrewd'" * Sunday Times *show more
