"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
