Pratchett, Terry. Truth. Discworld No. 25. Doubleday, 2000.
The Truth is one of Terry Pratchett’s very best novels. It is, if anything, more relevant in the post-Trump era than it was when it was written. News, we are told, is hard to define but a reporter knows it when he or she sees it. The public is less discerning and are easily drawn in by what we would now call fake news. Like the Moist von Lipwig stories from Going Postal to Raising Steam, The Truth is an industrial fantasy. Institutions like the Post Office and the railroad have a seductive power in Discworld. The Press wants to be fed, and it demands obsessive attention from its servants. A handwritten newsletter becomes a mass-market newspaper with a dwarf-produced printing press with moveable type and a light-sensitive vampire photographer who has trouble with a flash that regularly turns him into a pile of dust. Pratchett constructs an unusually complex mystery plot that conjures Watergate, even as its editor, William de Worde, conjures William Randolph Hearst. The villains, Mr. Pin and Mr. Tulip, are terrifyingly over the top, but we are reminded that they are in the service of shadowy Lords and lawyers who may be worse. Somehow, it all works out, and the press does reveal the truth and establish an uneasy détente with the forces of law and order represented by Vetinari and Vimes. 5 stars. ( )

Very good, though a second female character would have been nice lol ( )

Once again, I am in awe of Pratchett's ability to take seemingly disparate plotlines and weave them into something that's not only fun and entertaining, but also has something to say about the world around us.

I honestly have only a single complaint about this installment in the Discworld series, and that's Tulip's manner of speaking. The "ings" just got to be too much. However, it's a minor complaint in the grand scheme of things, and honestly, how often are you gonna get a book where an on-the-wagon vampire creates "prints of darkness"?

Another winner in a wonderful series. ( )

One of those in which Pratchett 'reinvents' for Discworld modern technologies. As a former printer myself I obviously have a bit of a soft spor for this one. ( )

Much as I enjoyed The Truth, honesty nonetheless compels me to admit that the novel didn't seem quite as zippy or fresh as most of the Discworld books (though still offering more entertainment per page than anything this side of Wodehouse). But Pratchett doesn't just spew out jokes and puns (photographs as "prints of darkness"): He implicitly defends a liberal humanism, one that loathes bigotry, jingoism, easy answers and any kind of zealotry.

Author's Note

Sometimes a fantasy author has to point out the strangeness of reality. The way Ankh-Morpork dealt with its flood problems (see p.232 and onwards) is curiously similar to that adopted by the city of Seattle, Washington, towards the end of the nineteenth century. Really. Go and see. Try the clam chowder while you're there.

The rumor spread through the city like wildfire (which had quite often spread through Ankh-Morpork since its citizens had learned the words "fire insurance").
