Who would want to harm Discworld's most beloved icon? Very few things are held sacred in this twisted, corrupt, heartless -- and oddly familiar -- universe, but the Hogfather is one of them. Yet here it is, Hogswatchnight, that most joyous and acquisitive of times, and the jolly old, red-suited gift-giver has vanished without a trace. And there's something shady going on involving an uncommonly psychotic member of the Assassins' Guild and certain representatives of Ankh-Morpork's rather extensive criminal element. Suddenly Discworld's entire myth system is unraveling at an alarming rate. Drastic measures must be taken, which is why Death himself is taking up the reins of the fat man's vacated sleigh . . . which, in turn, has Death's level-headed granddaughter, Susan, racing to unravel the nasty, humbuggian mess before the holiday season goes straight to hell and takes everyone along with it.

I loved the book, as I've loved all of the Discworld novels. Pratchett shows no sign of running out of steam with the Discworld novels.Read Full Review of Hogfather (Discworld Novels)
Many of the familiar Discworld characters are here...but the story is only fair. Fans of the Discworld series may want to check out The Hogfather if they've never read it, but I would not list this one among my favorites.Read Full Review of Hogfather (Discworld Novels)
This is a good book, but not a favourite of mine.It began really well, but lapsed around the middle, where it seemed to become just a little long.Read Full Review of Hogfather (Discworld Novels)
