It's the night before Hogwatch. And it's too quiet.

There's snow, there are robins, there are trees covered with decorations, but there's a notable lack of the fat man who delivers the toys...

He's gone.

Susan the governess has to find him before morning, otherwise the sun won't rise. And unfortunately her only helpers are a raven with an eyeball fixation, the Death of Rats (the grim squeaker), and an oh god of hangovers. Worse still, someone is coming down the chimney. This time he's carrying a sack instead of a scythe, but there's something regrettably familiar...

Ho. Ho. Ho.

It's true what they say...You'd better watch out...

Listener Opinions

    " I love Terry Pratchett. The man is an absolute genius, and Hogfather is one of his best books. The characters here are truly brilliant, particularly Susan, Death, and Mr. Teatime. The plot is ingenious and engaging, and the message about the importance of imagination and belief is incredibly powerful. A fantastic book all around. "

    " I loved this book. It didn't move quite as quickly as some Discworld books have, and the subject matter wasn't the most riveting from the beginning, but there was an attention to detail that fleshed out the story and kept me very interested. Pratchett stayed a step or two ahead of me for the entirety--there was always an extra step of complexity that I hadn't expected. The character development was (as always) phenomenal, and I found myself enjoying Susan Sto-Helit far more than I had expected. Her introduction in an earlier book was fairly lackluster to me. The concepts that drove the story were brilliant and inventive. Definitely one of my favorite Discworld books. "

    " definitely better than the movie. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Hannah | 12/26/2013

    " One of my favorite Terry Pratchett books so far! My mom got peeved because I wouldn't stop reading little bits out loud... "

    " First book I read of Pratchetts and got me hooked! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Richard Houchin | 11/20/2013

    " Discworld books have caused me the highest ratio of laughter to word count than any other writing. Pratchett is immensely clever and precise, and his social commentary is magical... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chad | 9/9/2013

    " This was a great book to read during the holidays. I beleive in the Hogfather... "

    " One of my favorite Discworld books. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Angel | 6/22/2013

    " Such a fun and funny book. I'd definitely recommend it. Death is definitely my favorite character in all the pratchett books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alia | 5/24/2013

    " I so much enjoy Terry Pratchett's sense of humour. I've enjoyed every one of the Discworld novels I've read so far, and definitely look forward to picking up more of them. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 tea_for_two | 5/1/2012

    " I recently watched the BBC production of Hogfather last week, which made me nostalgic for the book. Sir Samuel Vimes and the Nighwatch are still my favorite character arc in the Discworld series, but every time I re-read the Death and Susan books, I'm reminded how much I love them. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jason Miller | 7/15/2011

    " Great Christmas (ish) book, with some of my favorite characters - Death, and Death's granddaughter. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Koe | 5/29/2011

    " Not nearly as funny as some of the other discworld novels. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Becca Elwood | 4/30/2011

    " Very funny book :) kept getting odd looks from my husband as I read it. Perfect for getting into the Christmas season! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dee | 4/6/2011

    " My absolute favorite!!!!...Atleast by Terry Pratchett; Remember, we are all having a near death experience, it's called living. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 mina | 10/3/2010

    " Lucu. Parodi Christmas dan Santa Claus. Death main-main jadi Hogfather (Santa Claus in our world). Dan banyak tentang Death of Rats juga. Kenapa ya aku senang betul dengan makhluk-makhluk berbicara dalam huruf KAPITAL ini ;p "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Anthony Eaton | 8/16/2010

    " The real meaning of christmas. Pratchett has a lot of fun inverting the mythology of the festive season. This one features Susan - Death's Granddaughter and one of my favourite characters. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cristina | 2/1/2010

    " Excellent Pratchett alternate mythology of christmas and santa claus. I was surprised and pleased. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shimon | 12/11/2009

    " Not my favorite Pratchett, but it was okay. Susan Sto Helit reprises her role as Death's granddaughter, and that's fun. But the broader plotline about someone trying to assassinate Discworld's version of Santa - and the fairly disappointing reveal at the end - didn't really speak to me. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Donsmaniac | 12/8/2009

    " I love this book so much i read it every xmas as an alternitive to the the usual xmas stories. one of the must read books of the discworld series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andy | 1/21/2009

    " What's funnier than Death? Death dressed as Santa Claus (or in Discworld, the Hogfather).

    This is the third Discworld book I read (previously reading the first two), and have since read several others, but this is probably my favorite so far. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Peggy | 8/13/2007

    " This one is really special. It’s a satire on Christmas that features Death filling in for the Hogfather (the Discworld Santa) with predictably bad results. This book also introduces us to Bilious, the God of Hangovers, perhaps my favorite Pratchett creation yet "
