Interesting Times (Discworld Novel 17)

Written by Terry Pratchett

Part of the Discworld Novels Series

Interesting Times (Discworld Novel 17) Synopsis

MIGHTY BATTLES! REVOLUTION! DEATH! WAR! (AND HIS SONS TERROR AND PANIC, AND DAUGHTER CLANCY) The oldest and most inscrutable empire on the Discworld is in turmoil, brought about by the revolutionary treatise What I did on My Holidays. Workers are uniting, with nothing to lose but their water buffaloes. Warlords are struggling for power. War (and Clancy) are spreading throughout the ancient cities. And all that stands in the way of terrible doom for everyone is: Rincewind the Wizard, who can't even spell the word 'wizard'... Cohen the barbarian hero, five foot tall in his surgical sandals, who has had a lifetime's experience of not dying... ...and a very special butterfly.

Interesting Times (Discworld Novel 17) Press Reviews

'This spinner of crazy science-fiction tales is a very sophisticated jester' * The Times * 'Cracking dialogue, compelling illogic and unchained whimsy... Pratchett has a subject and a style that is very much his own' -- John Melmouth * The Sunday Times * 'Pratchett is as funny as Wodehouse and as witty as Waugh' -- Christina Hardyment * Independent * 'Imagine a collision between Jonathan Swift at his most scatalogically-minded and J.R.R Tolkein on speed... This total mess of- I suppose- a novel, is the joyous outcome' -- Gerald Kaufman * Daily Telegraph *
