Amazon Review

The Truth is Terry Pratchett's 25th novel about Discworld in general and the dirt-encrusted metropolis of Ankh-Morpork in particular--home of the sinister Patrician, the Unseen University of magicians and guilds for everything from Assassins to Thieves, taking in Clowns (but not mimes) along the way. Ankh-Morpork has weathered several influxes of technology in its time--a demon-inspired invention of the movies, the brief fad for Music with Rocks in it--and now it has acquired a free press, dedicated newshounds, dwarf printers with not especially nasty tempers (for dwarves), and people who want to see their amusing vegetables in the "On a Lighter Note" section. The business of politics (attempts by the old aristocracy to unseat the Patrician) is ratcheted up a notch and Vimes, of the City Watch, is in a worse temper than usual. William de Worde, editor, reporter and investigator, is another attractive Pratchett hero, captured for us in the middle of wonderfully parodied routines from old movies and fiction that he, in his world, is doing for the first time. This is inventive farce with touches of high seriousness and ethical good sense, and two of the nastiest doomed hitmen outside Tarantino. --Roz Kaveney --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Review

"'Pratchett has found his owm way of turning lead into gold, and by that I don't just mean that he's written 25 bestsellers in 17 years, but that every one he has written is a treasure'" (Helen Falconer Guardian)

"'Fluent, intricately plotted and sometimes very funny'" (James Delingpole Daily Telegraph)

"'He would be amusing in any form, and his spectacular inventiveness makes the Discworld series one of the perennial joys of modern fiction'" (Mail on Sunday)

"'Pratchett fans are in for a treat with his 25th Discworld novel'" (Maggie Pringle Daily Express)

"'THE TRUTH is an unmitigated delight and very, very funny...The pace is compelling but he never lets his tale descend into simple farce'" (Peter Ingham The Times)

Book Description

Terry Pratchett's twenty-fifth Discworld novel.

From the Back Cover

WILLIAM JUST WANTS TO GET AT THE TRUTH. UNFORTUNATELY, EVERYONE ELSE WANTS TO GET AT WILLIAM. AND IT'S ONLY THE THIRD EDITION...

William de Worde is the accidental editor of the Discworld's first newspaper. Now he must cope with the traditional perils of a journalist's life - people who want him dead, a recovering vampire with a suicidal fascination for flash photography, some more people who want him dead in a different way and, worst of all, the man who keeps begging him to publish pictures of his humorously shaped potatoes.

About the Author
