Well folks, Mr. Pratchett has done it again! With his 40th and final Discworld Novel before his death this year, Terry Pratchett exceeded himself with this superb installment into the series that has made him a fan favourite. We look in on the citizens of Ankh-Morpork and find what modern treasures have filtered through the many planes between our world and their's. This time locomotives have powered their way into the city, guaranteed to make everyone's life easier and better...what's a few building sabotages, dwarfish terrorism, coups-d'Etats and kidnappings of pregnant Dwarf Kings between friends? (It's impossible to tell the gender differences in Dwarves. Maybe the kidnapping would have gone differently if the King's gender was known?) I know that's not enough action for the average Discworld fan but worry not. Your favourite characters like Moist von Lipwig, Adora Belle Dearheart, Lord Vetinari and Sgt. Fred Colon lend their hands in the building/destruction of The Discworld's first railroad with plenty of dizzying highs, terrifying lows and full steam ahead. If you are a fan of hysterical humour/fantasy this is a great book for you.
Traces the remarkable changes occurring in Ankh-Morpork with the arrival of the first steam engine, which culminates in a new and challenging job for Moist von Lipwig.
