MEDIA REVIEWS
"One of the best and funniest English authors alive" * Independent *
"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 *
"He would be amusing in any form and his spectacular inventiveness makes the Discworld series one of the perennial joys of modern fiction" * Mail on Sunday *

I first picked up this book after reading Jingo ( a book further on in the series) which I only read as I had not other books to read and a friend had left it lying around. It is the first book in the Discworld series... More
