Publisher's Summary

It's the night before Hogwatch. And it's too quiet.There's snow, there are robins, there are trees covered with decorations, but there's a notable lack of the fat man who delivers the toys...He's gone.Susan the governess has to find him before morning, otherwise the sun won't rise. And unfortunately her only helpers are a raven with an eyeball fixation, the Death of Rats ("the grim squeaker"), and an oh god of hangovers. Worse still, someone is coming down the chimney. This time he's carrying a sack instead of a scythe, but there's something regrettably familiar...Ho. Ho. Ho.It's true what they say..."You'd better watch out..."Browse more novels of Discworld.

Critic Reviews

"Discworld is more complicated and satisfactory than Oz. Truly original. Pratchett creates a brilliant excess of delectable detail!" (Isaac Asimov's Science Fiction Magazine) "The characters, the conceits, the jibes at contemporary intellectual currents are delightful." (AudioFile)
"You needn't have read Pratchett before to laugh uproariously and think seriously about the meanings of Christmas." (

Sure cure for December blues

I can't think of a better tale to listen to while standing in long post office or shipping company lines, being bogged down in holiday traffic, or just generally feeling a bit Grinchy. Wickedly funny, unexpectedly moving in a few spots, always thought-provoking and never sickly sweet, "Hogfather" is a post-Thanksgiving must-read for me. You don't even have to keep Christmas to enjoy it.

Too much fun!

I've been reading the Discworld series for years. I'm not sure what made me decide to try one in audio format, but I'm SO glad I did! The Discworld books seem to have been meant to be read aloud. I can't believe how much I've been enjoying them since discovering them in audio format. Nigel Planer is amazing. Listening to it was a wonderful experience, very enjoyable.

Of the many discworld characters is one called The Hogfather. He is the Discworld's version of Father Christmas but with a twist.

All the usual humour in a Pratchett book. The book is essentially a who dunnit. I found the content of this book slightly darker than most of Terry's works, which tend to be a lot lighter in content and humour.

Still the book is a cracking read and one i heartily reccommend.

Sooo Funny

Whatever you do, don't listen to this where strangers can see you. Sadly, I don't often laugh at much these days. I've seen and heard most jokes before.
This book had me in stitches. I listen to my books whilst out on my rambles and got some very strange looks as I would suddenly burst out laughing.
With Terry Pratchet's humour being read by Nigel Planar, the man with a hundred voices... the combination is unbeatable. This is fantasy at it's best.
