And they need all the help they can get.  Because they've only got twenty-four hours to clean up the town and this is ANKH-MORPORT we're talking about...

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 4 out of 5 by from The Watch at it again In this Discworld instalment we return to The Watch, Captain Vimes, Corporal Carrot, and a host of other familiar and new characters. As always Pratchett demonstrates his ease as a story-teller, married closely to wit, madcap humour and endearing moments. While not as many outright guffaws in this yarn about gun (or gonne) control, multiculturalism and destiny, certainly there is an abundance of escapism, heroism and whodunnits.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Pratchett Ever I have read many of Terry Pratchett's books but this one is the funniest, best-written and entertaining of all of them. This book is great as an introduction to the series or as the capper of a vast collection. If you enjoy witty humour, puns and good gags, this is where it's at!
