    Suddenly, condemned arch-swindler Moist von Lipwig found himself with a noose around his neck and dropping through a trapdoor into...a government job? By all rights, Moist should be meeting his maker rather than being offered a position as postmaster by Lord Vetinari, supreme ruler of Ankh-Morpork.

    ChrisR says: "Great as an audiobook"
    "great book."
    Overall

    This is a very funny book, Terry Pratchett has a strange mind, but you cannot stop reading, the mind pictures are amazing. So all in all a great book, a great read, and if you don't find yourself giggling quietly you will find your self laughing out loud.

    Michael says: "A Stereotypical Fantasy Story, But Well-Written..."
    "This book is a great start to a great series."
    Overall

    I have just listened spellbound to Wizards First Rule, and can only say I cannot wait to read the whole series. It has the soaring life that pulls you into the 3 lands and it is only with difficulty you can drag yourself away. If this book was a drug it would be illegal, it takes you to the heights of life and the depths of dispaire with breath taking ease. I would recommend any reader that opens this book to hold on and enjoy the ride. it makes you feel every pain,every joy and every grief, so go on, I dare you, you will have the ride of your life and give you emotions a really good work out at the same time.

    The Company builds planets. Kin Arad is a high-ranking official of the Company. After 21 decades of living, and with the help of memory surgery, she is at the top of her profession. Discovering two of her employees have placed a fossilised plesiosaur in the wrong stratum, not to mention the fact it is holding a placard that reads "End Nuclear Testing Now", doesn't dismay the woman who built a mountain range in the shape of her initials during her own high-spirited youth.

    Overall

    I have just finished listening to this book, and the way Terry Prachetts mind works facinates me. I am almost completely blind but somehow this man lets me SEE the things he is talking about, and there is so much variety in his writing. This book takes us clear into a future that may or may not happen, but makes us wish that it would, no other writer makes me feel this way, and takes me laughing into his strange worlds.
