An idiots guide to discworld,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Turtle Moves, The: Discworld's Story So Far (Paperback)
This book is quite entertaining, it tries to give a synopsis of the Discworld and the books of Terry Pratchett, and it does it well.
The author has taken the books and looked at the mythology and lore relating to the certain aspects of each book. I have a problem with a couple of the "Americanised" versions of why certain things have been included, and especially the inaccurate ones, but I may be being pedantic.
The errors and omissions from his book are not substantial, just sometimes a little irritating, and the book has obviously been written from an American perspective for the growing American readership of Discworld books. This does not detract from the from what is one of the best discworld guides I've ever read.
Overall, it's an outstanding guide to the discworld.

Ironically inaccurate was spelled inaccurately.

I hadn't noticed when I proof read it :D
Thank you for pointing it out - I have now corrected my error (blushes with embarrassment)
