The discworld discovers moving pictures. Some great parody, and 'The Librarian' gets a lot of mention.

My reviews on Terry Pratchett's Discworld series are pretty biased because I absolutely love them. In this one the alchemists have discovered the magic of the silver screen. But what is the dark secret of Holy Wood hill? This is the UK version of the book. At least that is where I bought it.

Oh my gosh! This is a great book! I love how Pratchett can take something like the movies and give it a Discworld twist. The references in the book to classic movies are great and the entire story was wonderful. A must read!

If you've never read Pratchett, don't read this one first. It's a great book, however, VERY slow in the beginning. Once it gets rolling, though, it makes up for the slow start.
If you're up on your classic Hollywood movies, you must read this book and see just how many movie themes you can spot. =]

Terry Pratchett's Discworld series is one of the funniest book series that I have ever read. Full of tongue-in-cheek humor.

A satirical look at movie making in the Discworld.

One of Pratchett's best satirical novels yet. Hollywood has never looked so funny!

A mysterious influence has been seeping into the minds of the residents of the Discworld, causing them to re-create familiar (to we residents of the spherical world) sequences with their newly-invented method of creating 'moving pictures.' Is it just entertainment, or does something malevolent lurk beneath the ancient Holy Wood?
As usual, replete with puns and quite a few very funny sequences, as Pratchett takes on our society's fascination with celebrities and mass-marketed fantasies.
Still, I didn't enjoy this one quite as much as most of the Discworld books - I've never been a fan of this sort of "meta-media," if you will - books, plays, movies, TV shows - that exist only to comment about books, plays, movies, TV shows.... I know many people just love that sort of thing, so it's definitely a personal preference.

DiscWorld novels are tasty mind-candy.
