The oldest and most inscrutable empire on the Discworld is in turmoil, brought about by the revolutionary treatise, 'What I did on my holidays.' Workers are uniting, with nothing to lose but their water buffaloes. Warlords are struggling for power. War (and Clancy) are spreading through the ancient cities. And all that stands in the way of terrible doom for everyone is Rincewood the Wizard, Cohen the barbarian hero and a very special butterfly. Sequel to "Soul music."

LibraryThing Review

User Review  - readafew - LibraryThing

Another Great and entertaining book from Terry Pratchett. This one is harder for me to pick a 'main' thing that he is poking fun at other than 'government'. Had me laughing out loud several times. All have been great books and I have enjoyed them all. Read full review
