Football has come to the ancient city of Ankh-Morpork - not the old-fashioned, grubby pushing and shoving, but the new, fast football with pointy hats for goalposts and balls that go glowing when you drop them. And now, the wizards of Unseen University must win a football match, without using magic, so they're in the mood for trying everything else.

The prospect of the Big Match draws in a street urchin with a wonderful talent for kicking a tin can, a maker of jolly good pies, a dim but beautiful young woman, who might just turn out to be the greatest fashion model there has ever been, and the mysterious Mr. Nutt (and no one knows anything much about Mr. Nutt, not even Mr. Nutt, which worries him, too.)

As the match approaches, four lives are entangled and changed forever. Because the thing about footballï ï ï the important thing about football - is that it is not just about football.

    " If you like Discworld you will also like this. I have read some early Discworld and like the language in which is it written but without chapters and sometime much padding it can be like swimming through treacle. However quite enjoyed it. Would not re-read it though. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Steven Walker | 1/26/2014

    " Absolutely brilliant as usual, Terry Pratchett just keeps coming up with the goods. The characters have great depth and their stories intertwine perfectly. The Discworld has evolved once again and most importantly it is still very very funny! The worst thing about the Discworld novels is that I never want them to end but I'm afaind that one day, inevitably, they will.... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Cygny | 1/19/2014

    " I thought it was slower than most of Pratchett's Discworld books and although I really loved some of the scenes and liked some of my favourite characters having a small side role, this won't be in my favourite list. Adored the book cover :D "

    " The evolution of football, two love stories, the best and worst of community, what's not to like? Funny and delightful. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jessica Ebacher | 1/14/2014

    " It's Terry Pratchett. It kind of goes with out saying that the book is well written, charming, and full of witty commentary about modern life. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Johnny Salas | 1/10/2014

    " I had absolutely no faith in this book being good, and it turned out amazing. It had three story lines going on at once, not to mention fine detail to each character's story line. Of course they all intertwined, but it's hard to say who actually was the main character and who is supporting. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Erika | 12/28/2013

    " Another home run by Terry Pratchett. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 LorCon | 10/30/2013

    " Pratchett is still in fine form with the wizards forced to learn how to play "foot the ball" and the Librarian, once again, saving the day. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stuart | 10/19/2013

    " It was refreshing to see Pratchett's trademark good humour flowing freely throughout this book. It was almost enough to rekindle my enthusiasm for football. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bojan | 1/9/2013

    " I felt it was quite slowly paced but overall an enjoyable read with interesting new characters and a different look at football. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dweezz | 11/21/2012

    " Not as bad as many people say, also not as good as Pratchett's earlier works. Overall a good and enjoyable book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Natalie | 11/16/2012

    " There now seems to be no topic that Terry Pratchett can not twist into a brilliant plot, and as a confessed football loather loved every word, and had immense empathy for many of the charactures! Rock On Terry! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 David | 10/28/2012

    " Very enjoyable. I think the disk world series just gets better as it goes on. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Craig Cottingham | 5/30/2012

    " #2 for 2010. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rob | 4/15/2010

    " Solid enough. Not one of the really great Discworld novels, but plenty entertaining. "
