They say that the fifth elephant came screaming and trumpeting through the atmosphere of the young world all those years ago and landed hard enough to split continents and raise mountains.

No one actually saw it land, which raised the interesting philosophical question: when millions of tons of angry elephant come spinning through the sky, and there is no one to hear it, does it--philosophically speaking--make a noise?

As for the dwarfs, whose legend it is, and who mine a lot deeper than other people, they say that there is a grain of truth in it.

Terry Pratchett is a genius!

Reviewer: Patrick M from L..A

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.
