The Hogfather

It’s the night before Hogswatch. And it’s too quiet.

Synopsis

‘THERE HAS TO BE SOMETHING IN THE STOCKING THAT MAKES A NOISE,’ said Death, ‘OTHERWISE, WHAT IS 4:30 A.M. FOR?’

It’s the night before Hogswatch. And it’s too quiet. Superstition makes things work in the Discworld, and undermining it can have consequences. It’s just not right to find Death creeping down chimneys and trying to say ‘Ho Ho Ho…’

It’s the last night of the year, the time is turning, and if Susan, gothic governess and Death’s granddaughter (sort of), doesn’t sort everything out by morning, there won’t be a morning. Ever again…

The Discworld novels can be read in any order but Hogfather is the fourth book in the Death series; a festive feast of darkness (but with jolly robins and tinsel too).

‘Has the energy of The Hitch-Hiker’s Guide to the Galaxy and the inventiveness of Alice in Wonderland.’
