it was amazing
Recommended for: Every single person on the planet

Well, here's a no-brainer. A fantasy book with a grumpy and unwillingly badass policeman? A comedy with underlying important race issues? Yes please.

Thud! was the first Pratchett that I read, and the first book I ever had which actually fitted in my handbag of the time (I've now got a decent book-sized one). As such, the gold is almost gone from the cover, the pages are falling out, and the covers themselves are battered beyond saving. I must have read this book at least 25 times, if not more. So much so, that I can actually quote entire pages. But I digress. This is a review, after all.

Thud! also had the advantage of being the first comedy/fantasy book I'd ever got my hands on, and, as such, I was hooked from the first page. The characters are extraordinarily vivid, the setting entirely random on the surface and possibly in the depths too, and, to top it all off, Carrot. Need I say more?

Basically, stop reading this, and start reading the actual book. Now.
