Publisher's Summary

Interesting Times, the seventeenth novel in Terry Pratchett's Discworld series, finds the planet's oldest empire in the midst of bitter turmoil after the publication of the revolutionary treatise What I Did on My Holidays. Workers, with nothing to lose but their water buffaloes, are joining forces against old warlords, spreading violence throughout Discworld's ancient cities. All that stands in the way of total destruction are 3 decidedly non-heroic creatures: Rincewind, the world's dumbest wizard; Cohen the Barbarian, who stands 5 feet tall in his surgical sandals; and a very special butterfly.Please note: This is a vintage recording.

Interesting Times, Good Times

There are just too many things I love about this story. It makes me laugh and smile and cry and want to kill the bad guys. It also shows how much like warfare teaching really is. The organised and polite rebellion is delightfully sweet and completely ridiculous. And just when things couldn?t get any worse here comes the world?s worst wizard and a hoard of (silver) barbarians. Not to mention there?s always the butterfly?.

Another excellent Pratchett

If any of you are at all familiar with Pratchett's work you will know of the wizard Rincewind, if not, get The colour of Magic and become so. This I think is possibly one of Pratchett's best involving the most useless and cowardly wizard in all of literary history, while The last Continent may be funnier, Interesting Times is more thought provoking, while still remaining incredibly amusing as always.
