"'A true orginal among contemporary writers'" * The Times * "'His jokes are the best thing since Wodehouse. His comic footnotes are still glorious'" * The Times * "'Pratchett's writing is a constant delight. No-one mixes the fantastical and mundane to better comic effect or offers sharper insights into the absurdities of modern endeavour'" * Daily Mail *
