The Truth Summary

The Truth: (Discworld Novel 25) by Terry Pratchett

'An unmitigated delight . . . very, very funny' The Times

The Discworld is very much like our own - if our own were to consist of a flat planet balanced on the back of four elephants which stand on the back of a giant turtle, that is . . .

'A lie can run round the world before the truth has got its boots on'

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 Reviews

"Other writers are mining the rich seam of comic fantasy that Pratchett first unearthed, but what keeps Pratchett on top is - quite literally - the way he tells them." - The Times

"The Truth is an unmitigated delight and very, very funny...The pace is compelling but he never lets his tale descend into simple farce." - The Times

"[Discworld] has the energy of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy and the inventiveness of Alice in Wonderland...[Terry Pratchett] has an intelligent wit and a truly original grim and comic grasp of the nature of things." - A.S. Byatt, Sunday Times
