The Carpet People | [Terry Pratchett]

The Carpet People

In the beginning, there was nothing but endless flatness. Then came the Carpet.... That's the old story everyone knows and loves (even if they don't really believe it). But now the Carpet is home to many different tribes and peoples, and there's a new story in the making: the story of Fray, sweeping a trail of destruction across the Carpet. The story of power-hungry mouls - and of two Munrung brothers, who set out on an adventure to end all adventures when their village is flattened.

Publisher's Summary

In the beginning, there was nothing but endless flatness. Then came the Carpet.... That's the old story everyone knows and loves (even if they don't really believe it). But now the Carpet is home to many different tribes and peoples, and there's a new story in the making: the story of Fray, sweeping a trail of destruction across the Carpet. The story of power-hungry mouls - and of two Munrung brothers, who set out on an adventure to end all adventures when their village is flattened.

It's a story that will come to a terrible end - if someone doesn't do something about it. If everyone doesn't do something about it.

A hilarious fantasy, co-written by Terry Pratchett, aged 17, and master storyteller Terry Pratchett, aged 43.

    "Just Good Fun"

    I loved it I would love to see a sequel "Beyond the Fringe" maybe. This was just good clean fun all the way through and I would recommend this for any age,I laughed out loud in several places.

    What did you love best about The Carpet People?

    Constant humor.


    Have you listened to any of Richard Mitchley’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Love the way Richard Mitchley reads this sort of book.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    There are parts where you can't help but laugh out loud.

    "Fantastic!"

    A fantastic listen on an 8 hour car journey! Pratchett's first book is as good now as ever! Well read by an animated reader, go unabridged and hear the entire story!

    "Not one of my favourites!"

    I usually enjoy the children's books, this one was OK, but not, in my opinion, up there with the rest. It might have been because the names of the different 'tribes' were a bit too odd for me to remember and 'place'. Still good, but Mr Pratchett sets such a high standard that I always expect to be bowled over! This book still had its 'common sense' feel for the behaviour of the characters.
