Thud! a novel of Discworld by Terry Pratchett

Thud! a novel of Discworld by Terry Pratchett is yet another in the immense Discworld series. This time the dwarfs and trolls are preparing to "celebrate" the memory of the anniversary of the first battle between the two. Think Northern Ireland marching season only in chain mail. This leaves the city watch trapped in the middle. We also get deep down dwarfs a sort of fundamentalist dwarf. Pratchett's social commentary is usually quite apparent in his work but its particularly blunt in this book. Just change deep down dwarfs to fundamentalist mullahs. Funny in places and certainly better than his last few books.

Is available through Abebooks.
