  1. I ve read virtually all of Terry Pratchett s books but Guards Guards , Men At Arms and The Fifth Elephant all related to each other remain firm favourites Sam Vimes is your typical grumpy copper, Nobby Nobbs and Sergeant Colon always raise a laugh and who can forget Carrot and his protectives Pratchett s imagination is quite incredible Don t know how he does it but wish I did.


  2. I don t read science fiction or fantasy Some might say that Pratchett is a fantasy writer I say that he is a humorous satirist This is the book that started my love of his writing, with at least a giggle on nearly every page, and the sentence that made me want to read anything he writes ever for as long as he can, in the face of his early onset Alzheimer s And this is True Satire, not mere parody, but human foibles on parade, entertaining screeds, and one book with a marvelous meditation on mora [...]


  3. What can I say except that the Night Watch is one of his best creations in the Discworld realm Vimes is a hoot a drunken one , Nobby makes you a want to check your wallet to see if it s still there and b itchy, that scene with Colon and the arrow with the one in a million chance says it all about the man, and then there s Carrot I don t think I ve ever seen a appropriate name to fit a character.


  4. I am a major Discworld fan The Ankh Morpork City Watch series is one of my favorite series, being a retired cop Great characters.


  5. 40 of so books, different collections, some audio, it s pratchett, read and heard some as well, all Dates wrong.


  6. Review originally published on my blog here, in March 1998.This is the seventh of Pratchett s incredibly popular Discworld novels It is quite remarkable how the standards of the series have been kept up in my opinion, the first novel, The Colour of Magic, is the weakest This is in contrast to the usual deterioration of science fiction and fantasy series as the series lengthens, especially for series like the Discworld which are groups of linked works set in a common world rather than a planned [...]


  7. In true Terry Pratchett form, this play adaptation was silly and playful and had me laughing and rolling my eyes A quick easy read, but one that has me desperate to see it actually played out on a stage Well done


  8. ExcellentI saw this in Brighton in 1999 and don t remember being that impressed with it However this script is much funnier than I remember there seems to be much of TP s humour left and I enjoyed reading it Briggs notes were very interesting as well.




  9. The first book of Terry Pratchett I ve read Well, as far as he is my favourite autor, I might say that I love this book.

  12. I am biased as I like all of Terry Pratchett s books and am currently working through them one by one, but this one is a great comment on social convention in a complex society.




  13. The first one I had read in the Discworld series, don t really remember it any, I remember it made me lolz muchly.




  14. Terry Pratchett is one of my favorite authors Absurd, satirical, lunatic silliness abound A lovely, twisted look at the world.






  15. I really enjoyed this one It really cracked me up in a few spots This wasn t my first Terry Pratchett and it will not be my last.



  16. One of my first Terry Pratchett books I ve read definitely enjoy the world he creates Don t find it as funny as many other people seem to but will definitively be reading from him.
