If you can get it on sale I'd say it's worth it. It come with a giant and beautiful map of Anhk-Morpork which is about half the value of the book right there. This one is only for die-hard Discworld fans though.

I have to have everything I can get from Pratchett's Discworld series. Like the almanacs, maps and encyclopedic works, this city guide is a literary escape, a book mentioned within Pratchett's books, and provides some colour and background to the Discworld novels. It contains a separate map of Ankh-Morpork. I'm not sure if this is a new map or the same that was sold separately some years ago, but if you want one to pin to your wall or to frame, why not buy both? Some readers may find the local city directory style short entries less entertaining than a narrative, but if you like the various extras published over the years, you'll probably like this one as much or more than the earlier almanacks and maps.

surprise after surprise Jan. 25 2013
By reviews again - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Just bought it while walking a mall in Southern London, bought it as an inspiration for printed design having no clue about its content, I believe when people read about "fantasy" world they just don't get the full picture of it, this publication is hillarious, like nothing else, if you get it don't leave a stone unturned or a word unread, EVERYTHING has its meaning and the biggest devil is in the smallest detail, I think this can be re-read multiple times and each time will end with a yet another discovery, this isn't just great story telling, the sophistication is simply unparalleled, Mr. Pratchett is a novelist-genius

Maps, I love maps! Dec 18 2012
By Wulfstan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Even (and especially) maps of fantastic places that only exist in the imagination. And, I love Terry Pratchetts light fantasy novels. So, here are both my loves in on package- a huge, beautiful, gorgeous, unbelievably detailed map of a place that doesn't exist (except in our imaginations).

Great gift for the Pratchett fan.

The Ankh-Morpork Yellow Pages Sept. 30 2013
By Stephen Mann - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Well, sorta.

The product is a book and a double-sided map in a shiny (plastic?) slip-cover held shut by an elastic strap.

The map is a bedsheet-sized, double-sided map of the city. It will provide hours of entertainment to the map-fascinated if they can find anywhere to deploy it in all its glory. Perhaps by evicting a child and commandeering its bedroom. The paper is a semi-gloss type that will suffer if made wet, so one's first instinct - to use it as a sail for a raft - is probably not a good one.

The book is a replica of a type of book one doesn't see outside of second hand book shops these days - a town gazetteer. Sort of like a yellow pages without phone numbers.

The town is, of course, Ankh-Morpork.

The material ranges from discussions of the various guilds including address (where appropriate), senior officers (where known) and general information (where not forbidden by law), to classified advertisements for a plethora of goods and services.

The pages have been printed to represent the age-acidized look of such publications and bound between hard covers.

This is the sort of book one dips into occasionally and stays for a while rather than reading from cover to cover. The overriding feel I got was much like that when I was given The Brand New Monty Python Bok and that year's Beano Annual; this would be something I would sample often but not all day.

In point of fact I bought my copy to help me get a game of Discworld (HC) off the blocks and running. It will be just about perfect for that.

Recommended for Discworld fans everywhere.

Brings the city to life Jan. 31 2013
By J. Badgley - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I wish I had this book three years ago when I started reading through the series from start to finish. Having a guide of all businesses and important locations within the city makes the stories feel so much more real.
