MEDIA REVIEWS
'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 *

“Not my favourite”

This wasn't one of my favourite Discworld books. It was funny in parts but the plot generally was a little hard to follow.

“Foul Tempered, Underestimated Camels”

The beginning of "Pyramids" led me to believe I was in for a very different story than the one that it turns out to be! It seems like you're in for a plot about assassin's and sneaky murders all in... More
