Community Quote

'The Last Hero' is a picture book for adults. At first appearance it seems a bit like a book for young children since it's bigger than a normal novel, and the story is interspersed with some fabulous and inspired art. Unlike books for small children however, there's a fair amount of text, ... Read review

The Last Hero - Terry Pratchett

He's been a legend in his own lifetime. He can remember the great days of high adventure. ... more

He can remember when a hero didn't have to worry
about fences and lawyers and civilisation. He can
remember when people didn't tell you off for
killing dragons. But he can't always remember,
these days, where he put his teeth... He's really
not happy about that bit. So now, with his ancient
sword and his new walking stick and his old
friends - and they're very old friends - Cohen the
Barbarian is going on one final quest. He's going
to climb the highest mountain in the Discworld and
meet his gods. He doesn't like the way they let
men grow old and die. The last hero in the world
is going to return what the first hero stole. With
a vengeance. That'll mean the end of the world, if
no one stops him in time.

Discworld in Danger! Review with images

AdvantagesStunning artwork, usual Pratchett humour

DisadvantagesNot much story or character development, hardback very over-priced

"...than a normal novel, and the story is interspersed with some fabulous and inspired art. Unlike books for small children however, there's a fair amount of text, and some of the artwork consists of amazingly complex and detailed diagrams. The story is set on the Discworld. This is Terry Pratchett's imaginary world which is shaped like a disc, and travels through space on the backs of four gigantic elephants, who stand on an even more enormous turtle. ..." Read review

Discworld's Final Frontier

Advantagesgreat illustrations, nice story

Disadvantagesover-priced for just a story; aimed solely at Discworld fans

"...say I fall firmly into the former category, and the release of a new Discworld novel is always a bit of an event. I must say, though, even I’m a bit concerned about just how many new releases there are these days – it used to be a new book in time for Christmas (very handy), and probably another one midway through the year. This year, however, we’ll just have to make do with this. The Last Hero isn’t really a ‘proper’ ..." Read review

Graphic but not novel! Review with images

AdvantagesBeautiful illustration.

DisadvantagesShort, expensive.

"The Last Hero is billed a Discworld Fable. Dictionary definition: Discworld- a flat world supported by four giant elephants. They in a turn are perched on the back of Great A'Tuin the world turtle which swims through space. Fable- a legendary story of supernatural happenings. In order to set the scene it might be best if I introduce you to some of the characters: Cohen the Barbarian- aging hero The Silver Horde- Cohen's band of fellow ..." Read review

An Able Fable

AdvantagesCharacters now have form!

DisadvantagesOver a bit too quickly

"PLOT ==== On the Discworld, which lies on the backs of four elephants carried through space on a giant space turtle called A’Tuin, there is a high mountain and on the top is Dunmanifestin, where some of the gods of the Discworld take their time to play with the lives of man, and right now they are involved in game that could affect the lives of all on the Discworld. Cohen is a legend, who remembers high adventure and when you weren’t told off ..." Read review

The Wrath of Cohen

AdvantagesPratchett & Kidby.

Disadvantagesa bit short, for the fans.

"...eagerly waiting each year for the next instalment of the Discworld series. It generally arrives right before Christmas, and makes the perfect present for your Disc loving friends or family members, hey that’s my excuse. Last year came The Last Hero, and the first thing I noticed was that is was a bit on the short side. I was a little perplexed by this and I felt a little cheated out of my yearly Pratchett dose. But then again, The Last Hero ..." Read review

Product Information for "The Last Hero - Terry Pratchett" »

Manufacturer's product description

A short but perfectly formed complete Discworld novel, fully illustrated in lavish colour throughout, THE LAST HERO is an essential part of any Discworld collection. It stars the legendary Cohen the Barbarian, a legend in his own lifetime. Cohen can remember when a hero didn't have to worry about fences and lawyers and civilisation, and when people didn't tell you off for killing dragons. But he can't always remember, these days, where he put his teeth ...So now, with his ancient sword and his new walking stick and his old friends -- and they're very old friends -- Cohen the Barbarian is going on one final quest. He's going to climb the highest mountain in the Discworld and meet his gods. The last hero in the world is going to return what the first hero stole. With a vengeance. That'll mean the end of the world, if no one stops him in time.
