"This is one of Pratchett's best books. Hilarious and highly recommended" The Times "Pratchett is at the peak of his powers; it's hard to think of any humorist writing in Britain today who can match him... A masterful ear for dialogue, a keen eye for the ridiculous and a real feel for language" Time Out "The best humorous English author since P.G. Wodehouse" Sunday Telegraph "Discworld takes the classic fantasy universe through its logical, and comic evolution" Cleveland Plain Dealer
