Product description

Review

"A classic survival tale that offers laughs and much to mull over, this is a wonderfully entertaining novel." (starred review)--KLIATT

"Pratchett's examination of questions about religious belief, the nature of culture and what it means to be human [...] is a terrific, thought-provoking book."--Washington Post Book World

"A wonderful story, by turns harrowing and triumphant."--New York Times Book Review

"Neatly balancing the somber and the wildly humorous in a riveting tale of discovery, Pratchett shows himself at the height of his powers."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"A searching exploration of good and evil, fate and free will, both as broad and as deep as anything this brilliant author has produced so far. "--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

"It is hard to imagine a reader who won't feel welcomed into this nation."--Horn Book (starred review)

"Quirky wit and broad vision make this a fascinating survival story on many levels."--Booklist (starred review)

"A rich and thought-provoking read."--School Library Journal (starred review)

About the Author

Sir Terry Pratchett was the internationally bestselling author of more than thirty books, including his phenomenally successful Discworld series. His young adult novel, The Amazing Maurice and His Educated Rodents, won the Carnegie Medal, and Where's My Cow?, his Discworld book for "readers of all ages," was a New York Times bestseller. His novels have sold more than seventy five million (give or take a few million) copies worldwide. Named an Officer of the British Empire "for services to literature," Pratchett lived in England. He died in 2015 at the age of sixty-six.
