Under the streets of London there's a world most people could never even dream of: a city of monsters and saints, murderers and angels, and pale girls in black velvet. Richard Mayhew is a young businessman who is about to find out more than he bargained for about this other London. A single act of kindness catapults him out of his safe and predictable life and into a world that is at once eerily familiar and yet utterly bizarre.

This is the best fantasy story I have encountered in years, possibly ever. Neil Gaiman has a wonderful way with words. He also has a beautiful voice and his stories are rich and meaningful. I don't often write reviews but this book deserves the recognition.

Truth! Justice! Freedom! And a hard-boiled egg! Commander Sam Vimes of the Ankh-Morpork City Watch had it all. But now he's back in his own rough, tough past, without even the clothes he was standing up in when the lightning struck. Living in the past is hard. Dying in the past is incredibly easy. But he must survive; he has a job to do.

But this one is. Hands down the best Discworld book yet. The wit, the plays on words and the deep understanding of human nature makes for a wonderful read.

The Great A'Tuin, the heroic turtle who supports the weight of the entire Discworld, not to mention four giant elephants, swims through the galaxy day and night with the burden of being the only creature who knows exactly where the universe is going. Philosophers have long debated where this is, and are due to find out in about 2 months. Shall they worry?

This was unrefined compared to Terry Pratchett's later works. This is his only book I have not enjoyed.
