The Wit and Wisdom of Discworld - Terry PratchettA companion of quotes from the Discworld (187 words)

The wit and wisdom of the Discworld by Terry Pratchett is a great reference book. It is split into chapters and each chapter is based on a Discworld novel. There are then quotes from the novel covered in the chapter. The quotes are numerous and will bring back wonderful memories. Whilst not a story book.

Moist von Lipwig is back in his ...

Having spoofed opera, films, publishing, the post office and goodness knows what else, Terry Pratchett turns his sharp sense of humour to the world of banking in the latest Discworld novel. You’d think that was an area ripe for skitting, wouldn’t you? And you’d be right as Pratchett turns in what is, for me, one of his best Discworld novels for some time. The basic plot sees Moist Von Lipwig (last seen in Going Postal!) take over the Ankh Morpork Bank. When I saw Lipwig had been brought back, I was slightly concerned, as I never really warmed to him as a character first time round. Whilst Going Postal was OK, it was not one of the best in the series. This time round, ...
