This is a masterpiece that is easily overlooked in the mass of sci-fi/fantasy parodies out there. The characters are all perfectly laid out, and even if you have never read a Discworld book before, you will have little-to-no problem at all catching up with the setting. Comedy here ranges from slapstick and wordplay to intelligent in-jokes and lampoons. Everywhere you look there is something to laugh at. This is a must read for any comedy or fantasy fan.

...and maybe think a bit. Or maybe not. But the 25th Discworld book is surprisingly fresh and funnier than most of its predecessors (not an easy task!). The adventures (and misadventures) of the Disc's first investigative journalist, as he battles to save his newspaper from ruin and Ankh-Morpork's Patrician from a dastardly plot, are at once a fine film noir newspaper story, a fairly average thriller, and the setting for a comic masterpiece. Although featuring many characters from earlier books set in Ankh-Morpork, this novel can be read as a stand-alone by those new to the series. Hopefully, the as-usual awful cover won't put too many people off (I haven't seen what the artwork on the UK edition is like - almost certainly good, like all the others Josh Kirby has done - but even a plain brown wrapper would be better than this). In short: Buy it, re-cover it, and read it.

The world of Ankh-Morpork may not be ready for the newsletter, Ankh-Morport Times. This publication was created by William de Worde, a journalist who has a gift for investigating. This skill has created enemies who now want to stop his presses. Soon they create The Inquirer, a tabloid which deals in items that are not the truth. DeWorde found out Lord Vetinari, the city's patrician, has a story which could cause big trouble. DeWorde, discovers that the truth is something that is needed to reveal the entire story. I love the works of Terry Pratchett and his stories in DiscWorld. He was such a genius when it came to crafting words in subtle ways so they make you smile just looking at the page and anticipating what is coming up. I recommend this book to anyone that enjoys these books or to those that enjoy fun fantasy.
