Thud! (Discworld Novel 34)

Written by Terry Pratchett

Part of the Discworld Novels Series

Thud! (Discworld Novel 34) Synopsis

'Some people would be asking: whose side are you on? If you're not for us, you're against us. Huh. If you're not an apple, you're a banana' Koom Valley, where the trolls ambushed the dwarfs, or the dwarfs ambushed the trolls, 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

Pratchett can make you giggle helplessly and then grin grimly at the sharpness of his wit. * A.S. Byatt * 'Thud! has a serious theme: racial intolerance. That Pratchett can explore this while still making us laugh is a tribute to the integrity of his created world ... Extremely funnym but it's also very near the knuckleduster.' * Scotland on Sunday *
