Publisher's Summary

You've heard of Faust - this is Eric. There's a difference. Eric is 14, lives on the famed and magical Discworld, and is the first ever demonology hacker. Fortunately, he doesn't succeed in raising any devils, but he does raise Rincewind (the most incompetent wizard in the universe) and the Luggage (the world's most dangerous travel accessory).
When Eric turns them loose on an unprotected world, the idea is that Rincewind will grant him his three rather adolescent wishes. You know, the usual three: live forever, rule the world, meet the most beautiful woman who ever lived. Simple, really.
Getting marooned at the dawn of Time, changing the future, and meeting history's most embarrassing god is only the start. Creating life on the Discworld is a mere detail. Because Rincewind ends up going through Hell. Literally.

I didn't notice how short this was until after I spent a credit on it. Would of been nice if it only cost half a credit.

The book itself was great.

As Good As They Get

If there is not something in this book that has everyone bursting into fits of uncontrollable laughter then there is something wrong with the world. From the fourteen-year old demonologist with a false beard, to the general who likes to leave decoy horses out the front while he sneaks round the back and not forgetting the demonic god who strikes fear into the hearts of all (at least until they find out he?s only six inches tall. There is something in this story for everyone.

Don?t be put off by the short length, this is still one of the best Pratchett books to date. It has the welcome return of old characters as well as an influx of new ones. We learn why hell is so much worse now than it was and also have the mystery of paperclips solved.
