It's possible to be completely oblivious of the finer points of choas theory and quantum mechanics and still enjoy Discworld. However if Stephen Hawking tugging the Church's beard in "A Brief History of Time" brought a wan smile to your lips, you will split your sides laughing as Pratchett kicks the religious world solidly in the private parts with this hobnailed boot of a book.

Guaranteed to to make your eyes water with mirth.

Two days. That is what it took me to read this, the twenty-sixth Discworld novel. I used to read Pratchett as I thought he was the best author in the comedy/fantasy genre. This may be true, even though I am now leaning towards the more serious writers. This latest offering is still as fresh as ever, no matter what anyone says I don't think that the series has gotten worse as it goes on. The Death books are among the best, second only in my opinion to the Watch novels. This book sees Susan once again take on the role as world saviour, with some brilliant twists which add up to make this a genuinely humourous book. Two thumbs up, I say. Keep it up, Mr P!
