Product description

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 alternate Paperback edition.

Review

"Pratchett has found his own 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" (Guardian)

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

"Pratchett fans are in for a treat with his 25th Discworld novel" (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" (The Times)

"No one mixes the fantastical and mundane to better comic effect of offers sharper insights into the absurdities of human endeavour" (Daily Mail)
