I read The Fifth Elephant again because I needed to relax.
I wonder if it's even worth saying anything about a book that already has 30,000+ reviews? Just this perhaps. What makes Terry Pratchett at his best a fantastic author? Lot's of things, but have you notice his gift for rhetoric? He spends half of his books putting ideas across and he does it brilliantly and even if you notice at all, it's still a book you can't put down.
