The Truth

July 18, 2016

A Discworld Novel. Author: Terry Pratchett.


There’s been a murder. Allegedly. William de Worde is the Discworld’s first investigative journalist. He didn’t mean to be – it was just an accident. But, as William fills his pages with reports of local club meetings and pictures of humorously shaped vegetables, dark forces high up in Ankh-Morpork’s society are plotting to overthrow the city’s ruler, Lord Vetinari.

Content Review:

Sexual content: 6 instances of innuendo.

Language: 36 d***, 9 hell, 8 bloody, 5 derogatory terms. One character keeps saying “—ing” as though it were a blanked swear word, but a few chapters in it becomes clear it’s printed as is: “Why does your partner keep saying ‘ing’?”

Violence: Vampires punches four men unconscious. Second-hand account of a man being stabbed. A dog bites a man. Burning oil splatters multiple people. One man shoots another with a crossbow. Character accidentally stabs another with a spike, the second man dies.
