"'Funny, wise and mock heroic with a tongue-in-cheek Technicolour certainty'" Sunday Express "'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 "'His spectacular inventiveness makes the Discworld series one of the perennial joys of modern fiction'" Mail on Sunday "'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'" New York Times
Be a MAN in the City Watch! The City Watch needs MEN!
But what it's got includes Corporal Carrot (technically a dwarf), Lance-constable Cuddy (really a dwarf), Lance-constable Detrius (a troll), Lance-constable Angua (a woman...most of the time) and Corporal Nobbs (disqualified from the human race for shoving).
And they need all the help they can get. Because they've only got twenty-four hours to clean up the town and this is Ankh-Morpork we're talking about... --This text refers to the Paperback edition.See all Product Description
