The light streamed over Susan like a silent gale. He gets a little too into the role, as per the usual. It is very much an English-kind-of-Humour book. The Death of Rats is reduced to a one-scene cameo in the film where it reaps the soul of a mouse caught in a trap on Hogswatchnight, and then watches Death deliver presents, whereas in the novel it appears much more often with Quoth the Raven. But there is SO much in this story about belief, about the impact that belief has on children, about how the things we’re told as children – “don’t suck your thumb, or the Scissor Man will come and cut it off! My first Discworld book, and admittedly it took a while to get used to his writing style, no chapters, and frequent movement from one storyline to another after brief passages.

Unfortunately, by giving a poor child an incredibly expensive gift upsets the balance somewhat.

Hogfather (Discworld, #20; Death, #4) by Terry Pratchett
Full Cast and Crew. It’s the night before Hogswatch on Discworld, and the Hogfather has gone missing, in a plot by the evil Auditors to destroy human belief and make the planet their own. Well worth a read but I am definitely glad I bumped hogfathet one up my reading list to fit in with the season as it may not have had the same hograther out of season. What makes this book an utterly delightful piece of Holiday literature is the side story, involving a seven foot skeleton with a pillow shoved under his Santa Hogfather hogfater, riding through the sky on a pig drawn sleigh beside a stubbled, alcoholic ‘elf’ and a magical gift sack, with a plan to bring Hogwatch cheer to the land as best they can.
By ordering or viewing, you agree to our Terms. I was not a fan of the things going on at the university or any other point of view.
My two cents: Michelle Dockery as Susan. One of the strongest examples of this is when he hogfaather a bunch of food from a restaurant to give to a group of homeless people.
Hogfather () – Rotten Tomatoes
UK Border Force Vroom! Someone wants the Hogfather Discworld’s version of Father Christmas, except with pigs instead of reindeer, and sherry and meat pies instead of cookies and milk, and he may or may not have tusks dead.
Would you like to tell us about a lower price? More Discworld books will be entering my abode. Terry Pratchett himself makes a cameo appearance as the Toymaker. hogfatyer
Hogfather : Discworld: The Death Collection
It was one of the few jobs a known lady could do. If you read the book and enjoyed it you will enjoy, and understand, the movie. I did occasionally wonder where and how all the plot threads were going to meet up and how they were connected. Comedic fantasy at its best. Amazon Advertising Find, attract, and engage customers. I will just say that this is a great movie.
Amazon Second Chance Pass it on, trade uogfather in, give it a second life. Here, Death is, literally and figuratively, a grandfather figure who shows more humanity than some of the other living characters in the story.
This page was last edited on 15 Aprilat Nigel Planer as Mr. Available on Prime Maddigan’s Quest. This is the first Discworld novel I’ve read in which Death plays a major part, and I really like how he attempts to understand people and revive belief in the Hogfather.
