5 out of 5 (1 rating)


MIGHTY BATTLES! REVOLUTION! DEATH! WAR! (AND HIS SONS TERROR AND PANIC, AND DAUGHTER CLANCY). 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 throughout the ancient cities. And all that stands in the way of terrible doom for everyone is: Rincewind the Wizard, who can't even spell the word 'wizard'...Cohen the barbarian hero, five foot tall in his surgical sandals, who has had a lifetime's experience of not dying...and a very special butterfly.

Review by

This is on the top level of Pratchett books for me. Rincewind is once again rushing away from trouble and ending up right in the middle of it. This time he is in the Counterweight continent, which feels very much like China to me. :) As usual, I love the sharp insight of the author into culture, traditions and politics, tempered by his wit and tongue in cheek writing. Cohen the Barbarian and his Horde play a large part in this story, and the Luggage, though not very present, makes his presence felt.
