9780552167581: Hogfather: A Discworld Novel (Discworld Novels)

The twentieth bestseller for the UK's fastest selling author.
     There are those who believe and those who don't. Through the ages, superstition has had its uses. Nowhere more so than in the Discworld where it's helped to maintain the status quo. Anything that undermines superstition has to be viewed with some caution. There may be consequences, particularly on the last night of the year when the time is turning. When those consequences turn out to be the end of the world, you need to be prepared. You might even want more standing between you and oblivion than a mere slip of a girl -- even if she has looked Death in the face on numerous occasions.

Review:

What could more genuinely embody the spirit of Christmas (or Hogswatch, on the Discworld) than a Terry Pratchett book about the holiday season? Every secular Christmas tradition is included. But as this is the 21st Discworld novel, there are some unusual twists.

This year the Auditors, who want people to stop believing in things that aren't real, have hired an assassin to eliminate the Hogfather. (You know him: red robe, white beard, says, "Ho, ho, ho!") Their evil plot will destroy the Discworld unless someone covers for him. So someone does. Well, at least Death tries. He wears the costume and rides the sleigh drawn by four jolly pigs: Gouger, Tusker, Rooter, and Snouter. He even comes down chimneys. But as fans of other Pratchett stories about Death (Mort, Reaper Man, and Soul Music) know, he takes things literally. He gives children whatever they wish for and appears in person at Crumley's in The Maul.

Fans will welcome back Susan, Death of Rats (the Grim Squeaker), Albert, and the wizardly faculty of Unseen University, and revel in new personalities like Bilious, the "oh god of Hangovers." But you needn't have read Pratchett before to laugh uproariously and think seriously about the meanings of Christmas. --Nona Vero

From the Publisher:

"Has the energy of "The Hitch-Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy and the inventiveness of Alice in Wonderland...It has also an intelligent wit and a truly original grim and comic grasp of the nature of things."
-A.S. Byatt, Sunday Times

Descripción Transworld Publishers Ltd, United Kingdom, 2013. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Susan had never hung up a stocking . She d never put a tooth under her pillow in the serious expectation that a dentally inclined fairy would turn up. It wasn t that her parents didn t believe in such things. They didn t need to believe in them. They know they existed. They just wished they didn t. It s the night before Hogswatch. And it s too quiet. Where is the big jolly fat man? There are those who believe and those who don t, but either way it s not right to find Death creeping down chimneys and trying to say Ho Ho Ho. Superstition makes things work in Discworld, and undermining it can have Consequences, particularly on the last night of the year when the time is turning. Susan the gothic governess has got to sort everything out by morning, otherwise there won t be a morning. Ever again. The 20th Discworld novel is a festive feast of darkness and Death (but with jolly robins and tinsel too). As they say: You d better watch out. Nº de ref. de la librería AAZ9780552167581
