Review of 'The Truth'

The Truth by Terry Pratchett
25th book in the 'Discworld' series

Another Discworld novel (number 25) this time following William de Worde as he starts publishing a newspaper in the midst of a crisis - did Lord Vetinari (the Patrician) attack his clerk or not? Of course, this is just a premise to take another amusing trip to Ankh-Morpork and, as per normal, the story-line does not really get in the way. As per normal for Mr. Pratchett, this book is confusing to follow with a number of, seemingly, separate storylines but is written in an easy-to-read manner. Despite the fantastical air of the Discworld novels it is interesting that the author chooses to include elements that brutally expose the “reality” of the situation (death being one of them) which I think brings his books alive. The vampire that takes flash photography is quite…interesting…

Rating: “A bit better than average”
