'Hogfather' by Terry Pratchet (London, Victor Gollancz, 1996, ISBN 0-575-06403-X)

A perfect book for those who are a fan of Death, for he plays a major role in this one.
There is something not right this year with Hogfather, it seems he is away and guess who feels responsible to take over his task...right a quite bony and skeletal figure. This leads to some hilarious parts, like the one where Death-as-the-Hogfather is in a mall, giving children presents. Just superb!
It still amazes me how Pratchett can think of new funny subjects for novels; it seems as though it is inexhaustable.
As for this one, I can be pretty short: it is really good!
