Terry Pratchett is funny. Terry Pratchett is a philosopher. Terry Pratchett is a delight and the trouble with Terry Pratchett is you should read his books more than once.
Terry Pratchett is maddening. I'm not at all sure I got everything he was saying. There are double meanings everywhere and to read this book is to want to start over and read it again.

If anyone asks about what Pratchett's book is about, just hand it over. He is very hard to explain. If you want to add quotes, it is nearly impossible, you would have to re-write almost the entire book.

It is not enough to say Death takes a working holiday and throws the world into chaos. There is much more to it than that.
The earth, according to Pratchett, is flat and rests on the backs of four elephants standing on a giant turtle. Well, finally, a simple concept. Everybody I know knows that. Hmm.
The biggest problem is where to go next.
