Thud! (Discworld Novel 34)

Written by Terry Pratchett

Part of the Discworld Novels Series

Thud! (Discworld Novel 34) Synopsis

Koom Valley? That was where the trolls ambushed the dwarfs, or the dwarfs ambushed the trolls. It was far away. It was a long time ago. But if he doesn't solve the murder of just one dwarf, Commander Sam Vimes of Ankh-Morpork City Watch is going to see it fought again, right outside his office. With his beloved Watch crumbling around him and war-drums sounding, he must unravel every clue, outwit every assassin and brave any darkness to find the solution. And darkness is following him. Oh . . . and at six o'clock every day, without fail, with no excuses, he must go home to read 'Where's My Cow?', with all the right farmyard noises, to his little boy. There are some things you have to do.

Thud! (Discworld Novel 34) Press Reviews

Imaginative, witty and consistent - as in consistently funny, consistently clever and consistently surprising in its twists and turnss - Thud! is everything that the 30th novel in a fantasy sequence ought to be, and more * SFX magazine * Pratchett too requires us to think. Whenever I read his stories I find myself thinking that he is grown up . He may write benign comedy but he knows how horribly complicated and exciting the Universe is * A.S. Byatt, The Times * You hardly need to review Pratchett nowadays...you know you can rely on him to be wirtty and quietly wise, and his creations have taken on a life of their own...A series that seems to re-invent itself by natural evolution every time * Starburst * Thud! is a book for those who like an action-packed adventure, the mysterious and the mystic, but also enjoy the Pratchett wit and cynicism and are looking for a good read. -- Ben Allport, Year 11, King Edward VI Aston School, Birmingham * Books for Keeps *
