Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love Terry Pratchett You can't find an author that compares with Terry Pratchett's story telling abilities. So funny, smart and witty. Having read all his books I am at a loss of where to turn to next and nothing else measures up. Make sure you read these books in order of publication or you miss so many references and jokes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Golden Pratchett's work always pokes good natured fun at society and its thought patterns. Jingo is an impressive look at prejudice within nations and how it affects the way the world interacts. Sam Vimes returns again to show us how an honest and unbiased attitude can help unravel the mysteries of communication. A great read!

From Our Editors

Two armies are about to meet in battle. One of them is headed by Commander Vimes of Ankh-Morpork City Watch. Besides having to fight another force altogether, the Commander faces a threat from within his own troops. Clearly Terry Pratchett hasn’t lost any of his paranoid edge. His Discworld series stands out amongst fantasy writing for its memorable characters and imaginative settings, and Jingo demonstrates why.

Editorial Reviews

“Pratchett’s writing is a constant delight. No one mixes the fantastical and mundane to better comic effect or offers sharper insights into the absurdities of human endeavour.”
