• "'Pratchett is as funny as Wodehouse and as witty as Waugh'"

  • "'The great Terry Pratchett, whose wit is metaphysical, who creates an energetic and lively secondary world, who has a multifarious genius for strong parody ... who deals with death with startling originality. Who writes amazing sentences'"

    New York Times
  • "'Like Jonathan Swift, Pratchett uses his other world to hold up a distorting mirror to our own, and like Swift he is a satirist of enormous talent ... incredibly funny ... compulsively readable'"

    The Times
  • "'Cracking dialogue, compelling illogic and unchained whimsy...Pratchett has a subject and a style that is very much his own'"

    Sunday Times
  • "'Entertaining and gloriously funny'"
