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, 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! (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 *
