A new stage adaptation of one of Pratchett's best-selling novelsThere'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 the city's ruler, Lord Vetinari.
The Truth start so innocently. Poor William just wants to earn a living by writing. What’s wrong with that? I love how things happen to William even without him really choosing them. He’s just an innocent bystander who has absolutely no idea of what is about to happen!
The characters in this are amazing but I have to say, I love Oto the most. I listened to this on Audible and every time he took a picture and started screaming, I just about died myself, from laughter! And the fabulous characters do not stop there. There’s Sacharisa and the dwarfs, and of course you have the two villians, which are just as good as ever! I love a good villian. These two sort of reminded me of an evil Pin and Teller.
And Terry Pratchett has such a great way of taking many plot lines and bringing them all together by the end. So much happens in this and it isn’t even a very long story. He’s just that fabulous. And the laughter doesn’t stop. Even when there’s a major pivotal point and a certain vampire gets his head cut off, laughter abounds!
This is why I can never get enough Terry Pratchett. The man is masterful!
