Review: The Dsicworld is a flat disc, riding on the back of four elephants, who in turn stand on the back of a giant turtle, The Great A`tuin. For those of you not familiar with Terry Pratchett, or his novels - just dive in anywhere and start reading. This man is what happens when LoTR and Monty Python collide. I currently own every book he has written that is still available, and I`m eagerly awaiting his next addition, due out next week or so. Always entertaining, it is almost impossible to put a book down once you start it. You`ll need to buy 4 or 5 at a time.
We all know the disc rides on the back of 4 elephants, but wasn`t there a fifth? Sam Vimes, Commander of Ankh-Morpork`s City Watch, is called in to solve the mystery. Sam is quite possibly the best loved character of all the DW, and you won`t be disappointed starting off with The Fifth Elephant.
