A hilarious riff on how 'music with rocks in it' came into being.
Terry Pratchett has a brutal sense of humour that rips into religion, government, pop culture, academia and just about anything that's lying around with a button that says 'Do NOT touch'. Satire, fiction, sci-fi, fantasy, humour - attempting to classify the work of the most brilliant writer I know is not a task for the faint-hearted.
This particular book stars Death, his grand daughter and a boy that seems elvish, a dwarf, a troll and some very angry Guilds. Oh and some wizards who have uncontrollable urges to wear black leather and plaster the walls of their Unseen University rooms with posters.
