Marvellous Discworld, which revolves on the backs of four great elephants and a big turtle, spins into Interesting Times, the 17th outing in Terry Pratchett's rollicking fantasy series. The gods are playing games again, and this time the mysterious Lady opposes Fate in a match of "Destinies of Nations Hanging by a Thread". -- Blaise SelbyReview:
"'Funny, delightfully inventive, and refuses to lie down in its genre'" ( Observer)
"'Imagine a collision between Jonathan Swift at his most scatalogically-minded and J.R.R Tolkein on speed... This total mess of- I suppose- a novel, is the joyous outcome'" ( Daily Telegraph)
"'Cracking dialogue, compelling illogic and unchained whimsy... Pratchett has a subject and a style that is very much his own'" ( The Sunday Times)
"'Pratchett is as funny as Wodehouse and as witty as Waugh'" ( Independent)
"'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)
