Críticas:

"An enchanting novel... Terry Pratchett is one of the most interesting and critically under-rated novelists we have." (Amanda Craig The Times)

"This is no heavy-toned tale: Tears and rage there may be in plenty, but also a cast of marvelously wrought characters, humor that flies from mild to screamingly funny to out-and-out gross, incredible discoveries, profound insights into human nature and several subplots. A searching exploration of good and evil, fate and free will, both as broad and as deep as anything this brilliant and, happily, prolific author has produced so far." ( Kirkus Reviews, USA)

"Thought-provoking as well as fun, this is Pratchett at his most philosophical, with characters and situations sprung from ideas and games with language. And it celebrates the joy of the moment." (Nicolette Jones The Times)

"It's a wonderful story, by turns harrowing and triumphant, and Mau and Daphne are tremendously appealing characters. It's a book that can be read with great pleasure by young readers-and not a few of their parents, I suspect-as both a high-spirited yarn and a subtle examination of the risks and virtues of faith." ( The New York Times)

"The unique pleasure of this story is that all the serious subjects and juicy ethical questions, such as the dilemma of the compassionate lie, are fully woven into action and character. Satirical portraits of upper-class twits, slapstick buffoonery, bad puns, and that particular brand of English wit buoy this story at every turn. Add a romance of gentle sweetness, encounters with ghosts, and lots of gunfire, and it is hard to imagine a reader who won't feel welcomed into this nation" ( The Horn Book, USA)

Críticas:

"It's witty and wise, but it leaves its young readers enough room for a newly formed opinion or two as they think about its themes of love, loss, loyalty, courage, religion and nationhood."-- www.thebookbag.co.uk "An enchanting novel . . . Terry Pratchett is one of the most interesting and critically under-rated novelists we have."-- "The Times" "Pratchett is, like Mark Twain or Jonathan Swift, not just a great writer but also an original thinker."-- "Guardian" "From the Hardcover edition."
