9780062334985: Thud! (Discworld Novels)

'Some people would be asking: whose side are you on? If you're not for us, you're against us. Huh. If you're not an apple, you're a banana.' Koom Valley, the ancient battle where the trolls ambushed the dwarfs, or the dwarfs ambushed the trolls, was a long time ago. But if he doesn't solve the murder of just one dwarf, Commander Sam Vimes of Ankh-Morpork City Watch is going to see it fought again, right outside his office. With his beloved Watch crumbling around him and war-drums sounding, he must unravel every clue, outwit every assassin and brave any darkness to find the solution. And darkness is following him. Oh ...and at six o'clock every day, without fail, with no excuses, he must go home to read 'Where's My Cow?', with all the right farmyard noises, to his little boy. There are some things you have to do.

Review:

"Imaginative, witty and consistent - as in consistently funny, consistently clever and consistently surprising in its twists and turnss - Thud! is everything that the 30th novel in a fantasy sequence ought to be, and more." SFX magazine "Pratchett too requires us to think. Whenever I read his stories I find myself thinking that he is "grown up". He may write benign comedy but he knows how horribly complicated and exciting the Universe is." A.S. Byatt, The Times

Book Description:

A brand new Discworld novel, about an ancient feud

Book Description Harper, United States, 2014. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 188 x 104 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Once, in a gods-forsaken hellhole called Koom Valley, trolls and dwarfs met in bloody combat. Centuries later, each species still views the other with simmering animosity. Lately, the influential dwarf, Grag Hamcrusher, has been fomenting unrest among Ankh-Morpork s more diminutive citizens--a volatile situation made far worse when the pint-size provocateur is discovered bashed to death . . . with a troll club lying conveniently nearby. Commander Sam Vimes of the City Watch is aware of the importance of solving the Hamcrusher homicide without delay. (Vimes s second most-pressing responsibility, in fact, next to always being home at six p.m. sharp to read Where s My Cow? to Sam, Jr.) But more than one corpse is waiting for Vimes in the eerie, summoning darkness of a labyrinthine mine network being secretly excavated beneath Ankh-Morpork s streets. And the deadly puzzle is pulling him deep into the muck and mire of superstition, hatred, and fear--and perhaps all the way to Koom Valley itself. Bookseller Inventory # ABZ9780062334985
