Publisher's Summary

This is the Discworld's last continent, a completely separate creation.It's hot. It's dry...very dry. There was this thing once called The Wet, which no one believes in. Practically everything that's not poisonous is venomous. But it's the best bloody place in the world, all right?And it'll die in a few days, except....Who is this hero striding across the red desert? Champion sheep shearer, horse rider, road warrior, beer drinker, bush ranger, and someone who'll even eat a Meat Pie Floater when he's sober? A man in a hat whose luggage follows him on little legs, who's about to change history by preventing a swagman stealing a jumbuck by a billabong?Yes...all this place has between itself and wind-blown doom is Rincewind, the inept wizard who can't even spell wizard. Still...no worries, eh?Also, Terry Pratchett would like it to be known that The Last Continent is not a book about Australia. It's just vaguely Australian.

What the Critics Say

"Pratchett is the funniest parodist working in the field today, period." (The New York Review of Science Fiction)
"Terry Pratchett is simply the best humorous writer of the 20th century. Wodehouse, Waugh, Sharpe, etc. all have their merits, sometimes considerable, but Pratchett really is a cut above the rest." (Oxford Times)

Hiliarious and brilliant

One of my top 5 favourite Discworld books, strongly influenced no doubt by the hilarious narration of Nigel Planer. He captures the Exian essence brilliantly and once again is a voice I cannot disassociate from Rincewind. He IS Rincewind! Absolutely hilarious book, I listen to it often and still can't help the giggles.

Love the story!

This is still one of my favourite Terry Pratchett stories. I like Nigel Planet's interpretation of the characters too.

A shame about the sound quality though. I would wish for a better recording.
