"The Truth" is yet another of Terry Pratchett's excellent fantasy-humor Discworld series. Populated by creatures ranging from blood-abstaining vampires to the staunchly businesslike dwarves to Death Himself (whose sense of humor is as dry as Pratchett's own), any Discworld novel is a delight.
This one, however, is more than that. The reader accompanies William de Worde, hapless hero and fledgling newspaperman, as he founds "The Ankh-Morpork Times". On the way, Pratchett examines the ins and outs of journalistic ethics, the importance of the truth, the challenges of developing a successful newspaper, and the sheer joy of finding the words with which to feed the ever-hungry printing press.
In short, Terry Pratchett's "The Truth" combines hilarity with some not-too-serious introspection. A tantalizing mix for old friends of Discworld and new readers alike.
