"'Funny, wise and mock heroic with a tongue-in-cheek Technicolour certainty'" * Sunday Express * "'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 * "'His spectacular inventiveness makes the Discworld series one of the perennial joys of modern fiction'" * Mail on Sunday * "'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 * --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

This is a most excellent entry in the Discworld series. In addition to the thrilling mystery, we get to:
* Meet an adorable gargoyle.
* Dine at a dwarf deli, where it seems impossible to order anything that doesn't come with Spam, oops! I mean rat.
* Attend the funniest clown funeral since Chuckles bit the dust on 'The Mary Tyler Moore Show.'
There's all this...PLUS, the Librarian gets to attend yet another wedding! Oook! Oook!

Does a dragon explode in the woods?
In the true Terry Pratchett manner though, there is so much more to the story. This magician with phrases and words weaves many story lines into one story so they totally make sense.
