Instead, Pratchett presents the humour of the situation...It is this realistic, if slightly skewed, version of his characters, which make The Truth such a strong novel -- and one that connects to the real world.

Synopsis

A new stage adaptation of one of Pratchett's best-selling novels



There's been a murder. Allegedly. William de Worde is the Discworld's first investigative journalist. He didn't mean to be - it was just an accident. But, as William fills his pages with reports of local club meetings and pictures of humorously shaped vegetables, dark forces high up in Ankh-Morpork's society are plotting to overthrow te city's ruler, Lord Vetinari. "One of the funniest authors alive" The Independent

Terry Pratchett is famous for writing comic fantasy, but there is more to him than that - he has developed into a scathing political satirist.

The plot is intriguing and unpredictable and there is a lot of enjoyment to be had here. It is one of Pratchett's more detached novels and this is probably why so many people seem to miss out on it.
