The Praise! The Accolades! The Kudos!

Oh, why not just skip the formalities and hoist Terry Pratchett on our shoulders for a job well done?

"Nothing short of magical. . . . Pratchett's Monty Python-like plots are almost impossible to describe. His talent for characterization and dialogue and his pop-culture allusions steal the show."
Chicago Tribune

"Pratchett has now moved beyond the limits of humorous fantasy, and should be recognized as one of the more significant contemporary English language satirists."
Publishers Weekly

"Offers more entertainment per page than anything this side of Wodehouse."
Washington Post Book World

"Gloriously uproarious . . . . Pratchett's humor is international, satirical, devious, knowing, irreverent, unsparing and, above all, funny."
Kirkus Reviews

"If Terry Pratchett is not yet an institution he should be."
Fantasy and Science Fiction

"Think J.R.R. Tolkien with a sharper, more satiric edge."
Houston Chronicle

"Discworld takes the classic fantasy universe through its logical, and comic evolution."
Cleveland Plain Dealer

"Truly original. . . . Discworld is more complicated and satisfactory than Oz. . . . Has the energy of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy and the inventiveness of Alice in Wonderland. . . . Brilliant!"
A. S. Byatt
