“Pratchett . . . has a satirist's instinct for the absurd and a cartoonist's eye for the telling detail."
Daily Telegraph (London)

“The purely funniest English writer since Wodehouse.”
Washington Post Book World

Sam Vimes, watch commander of Ankh-Morpork, is at long last taking a much-needed (and well deserved) vacation. But, of course, this is Discworld®, where nothing goes as planned—and before Vimes can even change his cardboard-soled boots for vacationer’s slippers, the gruff watch commander soon finds himself enmeshed in a fresh fiasco fraught with magic, cunning, daring, and (for the reader more than for poor Vimes) endless hilarity. Did he really expect time off? As Vimes himself says in Feet of Clay, “there’s some magical creature called ‘overtime,’ only no one’s even seen its footprints.” Following the New York Times bestselling Unseen Academichals, Terry Pratchett delivers an enthralling new tale from a place of insuperable adventure: Discworld.

Quotes & Awards

  • “A triumphant effort.”

    Independent on Sunday (London)

  • “[Snuff is a] lively outing, complete with sly shout-outs to Jane Austen and gritty police procedurals.”

    Publishers Weekly (starred review)

  • “Stephen Briggs has a long history with the Discworld series, having narrated Sam Vimes through many adventures...Briggs’ sardonic delivery augments the dry humor and the wordplay that is one of Prachett’s trademarks.”

    AudioFile

  • “In short, this is as busy and as daft as any other Discworld yarn, which means it is the quintessence of daft. Nobody writes fantasy funnier than Pratchett.”

    Booklist

  • “Series followers will delight in this latest entry…Pratchett’s fun, irreverent-seeming story line masks a larger discussion of social inequalities and the courage it takes to stand up for the voiceless.”

    Library Journal

  • “This account of Unseen University’s entry into the world of soccer pushes past the usual conventions of satire to offer equal parts absurdist philosophy and heartwarming romance…A witty addition to the long-running fantasy series”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • A New York Times Bestseller
  • A USA Today Bestseller
  • One of the 2011 Kirkus Reviews’ Best Books
  • Locus Award
