'Snuff is entertaining, with all Pratchett's genius on display' Sunday Express

The Discworld is very much like our own - if our own were to consist of a flat planet balanced on the back of four elephants which stand on the back of a giant turtle, that is . . .

'The jurisdiction of a good man extends to the end of the world.'

It is a truth universally acknowledged that a policeman taking a holiday would barely have had time to open his suitcase before he finds his first corpse.

Commander Sam Vimes of the Ankh-Morpork City Watch is on holiday in the pleasant and innocent countryside, but not for him a mere body in the wardrobe. There are many, many bodies - and an ancient crime more terrible than murder.

He is out of his jurisdiction, out of his depth, out of bacon sandwiches; and out of his mind. But never out of guile. Where there is a crime there must be a punishment.

They say that in the end all sins are forgiven.

Vimes is about to uncover the exception.

Review:

"[Discworld is] Warm, silly, compulsively readable, fantastically inventive, surprisingly serious exploration in story form of just about any aspect of our world...Where other writers are delighted if they come up with just a handful of comic figures with self-sustaining life in them - Don Quixote and Sancho, the three men in the boat, Pooh and Piglet and Eeyore - Pratchettt breeds them by the score...There's never been anything quite like it." (Francis Spufford Evening Standard)

"Pratchett is a master storyteller. He is endlessly inventive...a master of complex jokes, good bad jokes, good dreadful jokes and a kind of insidious wisdom about human nature...I read his books at a gallop and then reread them every time I am ill or exhausted." (A. S. Byatt Guardian)

"To keep it fresh into the 39th volume of a series deserves a knighthood...Snuff is entertaining, with all Pratchett's genius on display. He still makes you care about his creations and, amid all the funnies, he can turn on the pathos." (Sunday Express)

"[Pratchett] is now so good at skewering the banalities and injustices of our world through his fantasy creation balanced on the back of a giant turtle that he could probably do it in his sleep...As effortlessly, generously funny as only Pratchett can be, Snuff doesn't stint on laying bare the darker side of life either. A worthy addition to the Discworld canon." (Sunday Times)

"Is there any sign of a falling-off in Sir Terry's extraordinary abilities? No. Not one. This is another brilliant, bravura command performance of comic fantasy. Terry Pratchett with Alzheimer's is still up there with PG Wodehouse. Amazing. Wonderful. Fantastic." (Harry Ritchie Daily Mail)

Book Description:

The new Discworld novel from the master sees Sam Vimes investigating a countryhouse murder, and is Terry Pratchett's fiftieth book.

Book Description Paperback. Condition: new. Paperback. The new Discworld novel from the master features the popular Sam Vimes, Commander of the City Watch. According to the writer of the best-selling crime novel ever to have been published in the city of Ankh-Morpork, it is a truth universally acknowledged that a policeman taking a holiday would barely have had time to open his suitcase before he finds his first corpse. And Commander Sam Vimes of the Ankh-Morpork City Watch is on holiday in the pleasant and innocent countryside, but not for him a mere body in the wardrobe. There are many, many bodies and an ancient crime more terrible than murder. He is out of his jurisdiction, out of his depth, out of bacon sandwiches, and occasionally snookered and out of his mind, but never out of guile. Where there is a crime there must be a finding, there must be a chase and there must be a punishment. They say that in the end all sins are forgiven. But not quite all. This is Terry Pratchett's 50th book and his 39th "Discworld" novel. It sees Commander Sam Vimes of the Ankh-Morpork City Watch investigating a country house murder while on holiday. He is out of his jurisdiction, out of his depth, out of bacon sandwiches, but never out of guile. Shipping may be from multiple locations in the US or from the UK, depending on stock availability.
