Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must read for Terry Pratchett fans! I just finished reading all of the discworld books and was not ready to say goodbye to Terry Pratchett yet. He has easily become my favorite writer. I was worried his other novels would not live up to the Discworld series and this book has proved my doubts needless. Everything written by Terry is a gem and this one is no exception. Highly recommend to anyone.
