Can handle a sword a little') and Theda Withel ('I come from a little town you've probably never heard of') to find out... MOVING PICTURES, THE TENTH DISCWORLD NOVEL IS A GLORIOUSLY FUNNY SAGA SET AGAINST THE BACKGROUND OF A WORLD GONE MAD! Readers love Moving Pictures : 'One of his funniest . . . Pratchett has fun making fun of greed and the allure of misguided hero worship' Goodreads reviewer, ? ? ? ? 'I burst out laughing several times while reading it and could quote over half of the book . . . Pratchett, in his usual deadpan humour, parodies product placements, the treatment of cast and crew on a film set, actors' behaviour . . . one of my favourite Discworld books!' Goodreads reviewer, ? ? ? ? ? '[Pratchett] makes his plot sing and dance and doesn't let any plates drop to the floor as they spin for hours. He makes you laugh and makes you think' Goodreads reviewer, ? ? ? ? ? 'This is going onto my pile of favourite Discworld books. I just loved all the movie references, the typical Pratchett humour had me laughing throughout' Goodreads reviewer, ? ? ? ? ?
