První příběhy ze Zeměplochy (Discworld #1, 2)
It was great, it was okay, it was weak, it was strong. It ebbed and flowed still holding onto Terry Pratchett's unique tone. Like Douglas Adams this tone is a blend of random detail and wit, utilizing deus ex machina elements at times for the sake of comedy.
