Having read all of Neil Gaiman's books, I can state unreservedly that this is among the worst of his efforts. But I suspect that's because I don't find Pratchett interesting or funny (and I've read very little of him). So, at least for reading, don't bother with the book if you like Gaiman but not Pratchett.

Of course the show is probably completely different from the book. I will say though that when I was reading the book I kept thinking that it seemed to be written to make a movie from, i.e. lots of action and expendable backstory. So it might be more like the book than many movies. I might give it a look to see if there's anything worthwhile.
