Truth by Terry Pratchett

Book Description

William de Worde is the accidental editor of the Discworld's first newspaper. Now he must cope with the traditional perils of a journalist's life - people who want him dead, a recovering vampire with a suicidal fascination for flash photography, some more people who want him dead in a different way and, worst of all, the man who keeps begging him to publish pictures of his humorously shaped potatoes. William just wants to get at THE TRUTH. Unfortunately, everyone else wants to get at William. And it's only the third edition...The Truth is Terry Pratchett's 25th Discworld novel.

Reviews

UK Kirkus Review » Terry Pratchetts following has always been massive and its not hard to see why. While gently guying the genre, he always plays fair by the lunatic rules he has set up for his Discworld narratives, and the unstoppable logic of his fantasy universe (which is a kind of demented spin on Lewis Carroll as much as J R R Tolkien) is both very funny and very ingenious. So prodigal is his output, that (like Stephen King in the horror genre) some very routine work has appeared under his name, but at his best, Pratchett is tremendous fun. Fortunately The Truth is Pratchett firing on all cylinders: a helter-skelter comic phantasmagoria that sprays out sardonic wit by the barrel-load. William de Worde finds himself accidental editor of the Discworlds first newspaper, and has to come to terms with the usual problems of a Discworld journalist: people who want to murder him, a vampire with a self-destructive obsession with flash photography and a political system with its own terrifying logic. All of this is dispatched with the usual Pratchett flourishes, and his inventiveness is as fresh as ever. William, in particular, is a wonderful creation: quite as beleaguered as any Pratchett hero, struggling to deal with his bizarre world and acting as the perfect centre for the reader. This 25th Discworld novel has all the panache of its predecessors, and adds a new level of surrealistic madness. (Kirkus UK)
