a review by Gill, in the genre(s) Fantasy. Book published by Doubleday in October 2011

Sam Vimes is forced to take a holiday in the country and discovers that things are not what they seem in the peaceful village. Once again Pratchett has written a classic with, humour, suspense and sheer wonder. I was hooked from page one and read the whole thing in two days stopping only to eat and sleep and then sparingly.

The characterisation is pure Pratchett, the slightly over the top people are nearer those you meet in real life than is comfortable sometimes. The bad guys are sometimes not so bad, the good guys not always as good as they could be but they are all wonderful, colourful and you get caught up in their lives.

So if there’s anything you need to know about goblins, you want to know how Young Sam is growing up, you wonder how Vimes copes away from the streets of Ankh-Morpork and how The Watch manages without him, then pick up a copy and immerse yourself in all things Discworld.
