⛄ Read ⁀ The Fifth Elephant: A Novel of Discworld online free download ⛎ Book Author Terry Pratchett ⛵ Terry Pratchett has a seemingly endless capacity for generating inventively comic novels about the Discworld and its inhabitants, but there is in the hearts of most of his admirers a particular place for those novels that feature the hard bitten captain of the Ankh Morpork City Watch, Samuel Vimes Sent as ambassador to the Northern principality of Uberwald where they mine gold, iron, and fat but never silver he is caught up in an uneasy truce between dwarfs, werewolves, and vampires in the theft of the Scone of Stone a particularly important piece of dwarf bread and in the old werewolf custom of giving humans a short start in the hunt and then cheating. Pratchett is always at his best when the comedy is combined with a real sense of jeopardy that even favorite characters might be hurt if there was a good joke in it As always, the most unlikely things crop up as the subjects of gags Chekhov, grand opera, the Caine Mutiny and as always there are remorselessly funny gags about the inevitability of story They say that the fifth elephant came screaming and trumpeting through the atmosphere of the young world all those years ago and landed hard enough to split continents and raise mountains No one actually saw it land, which raised the interesting philosophical question when millions of tons of angry elephant come spinning through the sky, and there is no one to hear it, does it philosophically speaking make a noise As for the dwarfs, whose legend it is, and who mine a lot deeper than other people, they say that there is a grain of truth in it. All this, the usual guest appearances, and Gaspode the Wonder Dog Roz Kaveney, .co.ukAcclaimed British author Pratchett continues to distinguish himself from his colleagues with clever plot lines and genuinely likable characters in this first rate addition to his long running Discworld fantasy series Carpe Jugulum, etc This time around, the inhabitants of Discworld s Ankh Morpork have turned their attentions in the direction of Uberwald a country rich in valuable minerals and high quality fat deposits The fifth elephant, it seems, left all these when he or she crashed and burned in Uberwald at the beginning of time Ankh Morpork s policeman Sam Vimes has been sent there to represent his people at a coronation and to find the recently stolen, rock hard and symbolically important at least to the Dwarf population Scone of Stone As he tells Vimes s story and surrounding ones , Pratchett cheerfully takes readers on an exuberant tale of mystery and invention, including the efforts of a clique of neo Nazi werewolves to destabilize Uberwald Along the way, he skewers everything from monarchy to fascism, as well as communism and capitalism, oil wealth and ethnic identities, Russian plays, immigration, condoms and evangelical Christianity in short, most everything worth talking about Not as perfect as Pratchett s Hogfather but in the same class, this novel is a heavyweight of lightness 200,000 ad promo 7 city author tour Apr FYI At the end of The Fifth Elephant is appended a handy travel guide to the World of Terry Pratchett, including a character guide to the Discworld novels and a Discworld crossword puzzle Copyright 2000 Reed Business Information, Inc.
