Once, in a gods-forsaken hellhole called Koom Valley, trolls and dwarfs met in bloody combat. Centuries later, each species still views the other with simmering animosity. Lately, the influential dwarf, Grag Hamcrusher, has been fomenting unrest among Ankh-Morpork’s more diminutive citizens, a volatile situation made far worse when the pint-size provocateur is discovered bashed to death, with a troll club lying conveniently nearby.

Commander Sam Vimes of the City Watch is aware of the importance of solving the Hamcrusher homicide without delay. (Vimes’ second most-pressing responsibility, in fact, next to always being home at six p.m. sharp to read Where’s My Cow? to Sam, Jr.) But more than one corpse is waiting for Vimes in the eerie, summoning darkness of a labyrinthine mine network being secretly excavated beneath Ankh-Morpork’s streets. And the deadly puzzle is pulling him deep into the muck and mire of superstition, hatred, and fear, and perhaps all the way to Koom Valley itself.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Ingenious, brilliant, and hilarious.”

    Washington Post

  • “Pratchett’s fantastic imagination and satirical wit are on full display.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Outlandishly witty and as irreverent as it is insightful, Pratchett’s Thud! is a knockout.”

    Barnes & Noble, editorial review

  • “As always, Pratchett’s latest Discworld yarn is funny, fast-paced, the kind of satire that explores serious issues while making readers love it.”


  • “More amiable mockery from one of our leading lights…Pratchett takes on a target in every novel, something in the modern world that really seems to get his goat. This time it’s a few things: ethnic clannishness and strife, religious fundamentalism, The Da Vinci Code and cell phones (presented here as a small, obnoxious imp in a handheld box called a Gooseberry™)…Bitingly relevant and laugh-out-loud funny.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • A New York Times Bestseller
  • A USA Today Bestseller
  • A 2006 Locus Award Nominee

    " one of the best City Watch novels. Best if read after the earlier novels, though, so that you get the full sense of Vimes' development. "
