A humorous take on the Faust legend in which Eric, Discworld's only demonology hacker, is not terribly good at his job. All he wants is three wishes (to be immortal, rule the world and have the most beautiful woman fall in love with him), but what he gets is Rincewind, and Rincewind's Luggage to boot.

Review:

"'Like Jonathan Swift, Pratchett uses his other world to hold up a distorting mirror to our own, and like Swift he is a satirist of enormous talent ... incredibly funny ... compulsively readable'" (The Times)

"'The great Terry Pratchett, whose wit is metaphysical, who creates an energetic and lively secondary world, who has a multifarious genius for strong parody ... who deals with death with startling originality. Who writes amazing sentences'" (A.S. Byatt New York Times)

"'His spectacular inventiveness makes the Discworld series one of the perennial joys of modern fiction'" (Mail on Sunday)

Book Description:

The ninth Discworld novel.
