Another outrageously clever installment in the Discworld files, Interesting Times reminds the world why Terry Pratchett is considered the best fantasy and humor writer in the English speaking world.
When a carrier albatross arrives from the Counterweight Continent with an Urgent Request for a "Great Wizard," Rincewind is "volunteered." Along his absurdly delicious travels, he meets a colorful band of characters only Terry Pratchett could compile. Their mission is to either defend or destroy the Forbidden City of Hunghung. The instructions are not entirely clear.
In this international bestseller, the funniest writer in fantasy strikes again with a rollicking tale of murder and mayhem in Discworld.

I acutally feel bad giving a Pratchett book only 3 stars, but Rincewind's books were never my favourites, and this one maybe be the one I like the least. There were fun parts, though, and thought provoking parts, as usual.
The funniest piece of fiction written by a single author I have ever read. This still makes me laugh out loud a lot!!
