Review:

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 Selby

Review:

"'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)

Book Description HarperTorch, United States, 2014. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reissue. 188 x 104 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. May you live in interesting times is the worst thing one can wish on a citizen of Discworld especially on the distinctly unmagical sorcerer Rincewind, who has had far too much perilous excitement in his life. But when a request for a Great Wizzard arrives in Ankh-Morpork via carrier albatross from the faraway Counterweight Continent, it s he who s sent as emissary. Chaos threatens to follow the impending demise of the Agatean Empire s current ruler. And, for some incomprehensible reason, someone believes Rincewind will have a mythic role in the war and wholesale bloodletting that will surely ensue. (Carnage is pretty much a given, since Cohen the Barbarian and his extremely elderly Silver Horde are busily formulating their own plan for looting, pillaging, and, er, looking wistfully at girls.) However, Rincewind firmly believes there are too many heroes already in the world, yet only one Rincewind. And he owes it to the world to keep that one alive for as long as possible.
