"The great Terry Pratchett, whose wit is metaphysical, who creates an energetic and lively secondary world, who has a multifarious genius for strong parody as opposed to derivative manipulation of past motifs, who deals with death with startling originality. Who writes amazing sentences."--A.S. Byatt in "The New York Times""A passion for language, wordplay and puns bursts from the pages."--Daily Telegraph "A great Pratchett strength is the sense that if the jokes were dropped there would still bea good, engaging fantasy thriller here." --"The Independent""Fantastically inventive and humorous fantasy adventure. Fans will be sky high." --"The Sunday Times""Pratchett's ear for dialogue is superb... His deep feeling for landscape, animals, kindness and courage make his adventures deeply satisfying as well as clever."--Amanda Craig, "The Times"

The themes of the book are quite robust and do give the impression that they will last throughout the series of books, I am looking forward to the development of the different issues Mr Pratchett explores.
This is a really great romp of a story by a master storyteller. The characters are normal people seen through a looking glass in a way that allows the odd to seem normal and for the normal to be held up to sometimes be a little odd. It sees the return of the "Nac Mac Feegle", a race of pictsies that are harder to kill than cockroaches, that spend their time, fighting, drinking and stealing. The story allows the various characters to be developed further and although each of Sir Terry's books can be read on it's own, this one is better read after the first book in order to best enjoy the way that they progress.
The story is suitable for younger readers, but contains a lot of references that will raise a smile on the face of most adults. It does a great job of bridging the gap between the the age groups and would appeal to almost anyone. I imagine that any young person that read this book and then went back to read it a few years later might well find more to enjoy, hidden in the pages.
A great addition to the series of Diskworld novels, and a wonderful story with some astute observations about people and the way that they behave.
It's a rollicking tale, rushed onwards on the amazing imagination and Discworld Science that the late Terry Pritchett excelled at.
