    Football has come to the ancient city of Ankh-Morpork - not the old fashioned, grubby pushing and shoving, but the new, fast football with pointy hats for goalposts and balls that go gloing when you drop them. And now, the wizards of Unseen University must win a football match, without using magic, so they're in the mood for trying everything else.

    Kent says: "Not Pratchetts best but still enjoyable"
    "solid work but not a revelation"
    Overall

    Story: The last Disc World Novel builds mainly on known characters introducing an Orc (Mr. Nutt), Mr Sugarbean, Jewels and Trevor Likely. The story is mainly about the mystery of football and its fans intermingled with the subject of fashion hype, the innovation "micro mail", and rivalry between UU and the Dean's new university.
    Reading: continued in the tradition of Stephen Briggs reading with enthusiasm and voices that we came to love and recognise. I personally like Nigel Planer better for his splendid intonation of Death but SB is a genius for dialects
    Over all: the novel ranges between the early ones and high lights like the reaper man and offers the known and praised wit of TP together with a fairly arresting story.
    I had fun listening and can recommend it to the fullest - already waiting for the next disc world novel.
    PS: What wasn't necessary was the introduction of the god of football in the end - I see no need for that. Apart from that: a peace to cherish for all fans and a good follow up for all readers
