Critics Review

  • Wraith-like jokes pushing at the margins of taste… inspired imagination

    The Independent
  • A hilarious and subtly thought-provoking story

    The 100 Best Books
  • A marvellous story… You think this is a good book? Right. It is funny, poignant, angry, outrageous and moving. Were it a movie, you’d leave the cinema wondering whether you were crying with laughter or because of the passion and compassion of the story. … [this book is] the best he has ever written, one that would shift him – were there any justice – from the ranks of “mere” bestsellerdom into the realm of “literature”… it also makes you look again at the way we live

    Vector Magazine
  • Terry Pratchett uses his wicked sense of humour to hilarious effect in his new fantasy story…anyone over ten can find something to smile about here
