Nation

Wise, witty and filled with Terry Pratchett's inimitable comic satire, this adventure turns the world upside down.

Synopsis

On the day the world ends, Mau is on his way home from the Boys’ Island. Soon he will be a man.

Then the wave comes – a huge wave, dragging black night behind it and bringing a schooner which sails over and through the island rainforest. The village has gone. The Nation as it was has gone. Now there’s just Mau, who wears barely anything, a trouserman girl who wears far too much, and an awful lot of big misunderstandings…

Wise, witty and filled with Terry Pratchett’s inimitable comic satire, this is a terrific adventure that – quite literally – turns the world upside down.

'Pratchett is, like Mark Twain, or Jonathan Swift, not just a great writer but also an original thinker. '
