The best novel from the best series. Absolutely fantastic!, 15 May 2001
I've read 9 of the books in the Discworld series now, reading my tenth now (Equal Rights) and all of them have been fantastic. This, however, is the best. The descriptions of the setting - Ankh Morpork, the shades and eveything else in it is wonderful. The characters are perfect, you can fall in love with 'em. Carrot, Captain Vimes, Sergent Colon, Nobby, Errol, the librarian etc. Then there's the jokes throughout the book and a fantastic story to finish it off. Probably the best book I've ever read.
