Brilliantly entertaining

by woodelf on Jan 22, 2010

The only bad thing, ever, about a new Terry Pratchett novel is reaching the last page. This latest in the series of Discworld novels is as brilliantly entertaining as the rest, featuring the wizards of Unseen University, the savvy Glenda, head of the Night Kitchen, her dim but beautiful assistant Juliet, knockabout Trev the football fan, and the mysterious and erudite Mister Nutt, who says he's a goblin but doesn't act like one... Besides Pratchett's oft-recurring theme of unthinking prejudice, this time out he takes a look at the appeal of sports, celebrity and the fashion world, the importance of candle dribbling, and the value of knowing how to make a Really Good Pie. Providing the usual mix of laugh-out-loud fun and thoughtful insight into the nature of society (human and otherwise), this book will not disappoint
