Review quote

'Like Dickens, much of Pratchett's appeal lies in his humanism, both in a sentimental regard for his characters' good fortune, and in that his writing is generous-spirited and inclusive' - Guardian. 'As funny as Wodehouse and as witty as Waugh' - Independent. 'Imagine a collision between Jonathan Swift at his most scatologically-minded and J.R.R. Tolkien on speed' - Daily Telegraph. 'The best kind of parody - funny and smart and still a good story' - Mail on Sunday.show more
