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
