About the Author
Terry Pratchett (1948-2015) is the acclaimed creator of the globally revered Discworld series. In all, he authored more than fifty bestselling books, which have sold more than one hundred million copies worldwide. His novels have been widely adapted for stage and screen, and he was the winner of multiple prizes, including the Carnegie Medal. He was awarded a knighthood by Queen Elizabeth II for his services to literature in 2009, although he always wryly maintained that his greatest service to literature was to avoid writing any.
Reviews
"The humor is sharp and the characters are charming, and the plight of the goblins creates moments of genuine pathos that are the highlight of the book."--Tor.com
"In short, this is as busy and as daft as any other Discworld yarn, which means it is the quintessence of daft. Nobody writes fantasy funnier than Pratchett."--Booklist
"This account of Unseen University's entry into the world of soccer (or, as they occasionally call it, "foot-the-ball") pushes past the usual conventions of satire to offer equal parts absurdist philosophy and heartwarming romance....A witty addition to the long-running fantasy series"--Kirkus Reviews
"A triumphant effort."--The Independent on Sunday
"Like Pratchett, [narrator Stephen Briggs] loves the comic rhythm, sound, and very taste of words-just for their own sake. So order up a tuna-spaghetti-jam sandwich (with sprinkles) and be prepared for a wonderful time."--AudioFile Magazine
"Thirty-seven books in and ... Discworld is still going strong...and doing so with undimmed, triumphant exuberance. "--The Guardian
"Brilliantly complex."--The Straits Times
"In the history of comic fantasy, Mr. Pratchett has no equals for invention or for range. "--Wall Street Journal
"Series followers will delight in this latest entry. . . . Pratchett's fun, irreverent-seeming story line masks a larger discussion of social inequalities and the courage it takes to stand up for the voiceless."--Library Journal
"Funny, of course, but with plenty of hard edges; and, along with the excellent lessons in practical police work, genuine sympathy for the ordinary copper's lot. A treat no fan of Discworld--and there are boatloads of them--will want to miss."--Kirkus Reviews
"...[SNUFF is a] lively outing, complete with sly shout-outs to Jane Austen and gritty police procedurals."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)
