Interesting Times

(Discworld Novel 17)




The seventeenth Discworld novel.

'A foot on the neck is nine points of the law'

There are many who say that the art of diplomacy is an intricate and complex dance between two informed partners, determined by an elaborate set of elegant and unwritten rules. There are others who maintain that it's merely a matter of who carries the biggest stick. Like when a large, heavily fortified and armoured empire makes a faintly menacing request of a much smaller, infinitely more cowardly neighbour.

Praise for Interesting Times

“This spinner of crazy science-fiction tales is a very sophisticated jester”

The Times

“Cracking dialogue, compelling illogic and unchained whimsy... Pratchett has a subject and a style that is very much his own”

The Sunday Times

“Imagine a collision between Jonathan Swift at his most scatalogically-minded and J.R.R Tolkein on speed... This total mess of - I suppose - a novel, is the joyous outcome”

Daily Telegraph

“Funny, delightfully inventive, and refuses to lie down in its genre”

Observer

“Like Dickens, much of Pratchett's appeal lies in his humanism, both in a sentimental regard for his characters' good fortune, and in that his writing is generous-spirited and inclusive”

Guardian

“Pratchett is as funny as Wodehouse and as witty as Waugh”

Independent
