MEDIA REVIEWS
"Pratchett is as funny as Wodehouse and as witty as Waugh" * Independent *
"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 *
"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 *
"Cracking dialogue, compelling illogic and unchained whimsy...Pratchett has a subject and a style that is very much his own" * Sunday Times *
"Entertaining and gloriously funny" * Chicago Tribune *
