"'Like Jonathan Swift, Pratchett uses his other world to hold up a distorting mirror to our own, and like Swift he is a satirist of enormous talent ... incredibly funny ... compulsively readable'" * The Times * "'Pratchett is at the peak of his power; it's hard to think of any humorist writing in Britain today who can match him'" * Time Out * "'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'" -- A.S. Byatt * New York Times * "'His spectacular inventiveness makes the Discworld series one of the perennial joys of modern fiction'" * Mail on Sunday *
