Thud! Summary

Thud!: (Discworld Novel 34): from the bestselling series that inspired BBC's The Watch by Terry Pratchett

Seventh book of the original and best CITY WATCH series, now reinterpreted in BBC's The Watch

'Imaginative, witty and consistent' SFX

The Discworld is very much like our own - if our own were to consist of a flat planet balanced on the back of four elephants which stand on the back of a giant turtle, that is . . .

'Beating people up in little rooms . . . he knew where that led. And if you did it for a good reason, you'd do it for a bad one. You couldn't say 'we;re the good guys' and do bad-guy things.'

Koom Valley, the ancient battle 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! 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 *
