Listen to a sample
'The great Terry Pratchett, whose wit is metaphysical, who creates an energetic and lively secondary world, who has a multifarious genius for strong parody ... who deals with death with startling originality. Who writes amazing sentences'
'Like reading Tolkien but with gags - and good gags too'
'The work of a prolific humorist at his best'

'His spectacular inventiveness makes the Discworld series one of the perennial joys of modern fiction'
