A bitterly funny, satirical look at Asia and its culture, viewed through the eye of Terry Pratchett. Plenty of earlier characters make a comeback, including Rincewind, The Luggage, and Cohen the Barbarian. There's another, but I won't give it away as it would ruin the plot. Let's just say that this was a lot of fun to read, with plenty of laughs, some serious thought, and plenty of twists. Five stars and very much recommended.
