War has come to Discworld again. And, to no one's great surprise, the conflict centers around the small, arrogantly fundamentalist duchy of Borogravia, which has long prided itself on its unrelenting aggressiveness. A year ago, Polly Perks's brother marched off to battle, and Polly's willing to resort to drastic measures to find him. So she cuts off her hair, dons masculine garb, and, aided by a well-placed pair of socks, sets out to join this man's army. Since a nation in such dire need of cannon fodder can't afford to be too picky, Polly is eagerly welcomed into the fighting fold along with a vampire, a troll, an Igor, a religious fanatic, and two uncommonly close "friends". It would appear that Polly "Ozzer" Perks isn't the only grunt with a secret. But duty calls, the battlefield beckons. And now is the time for all good "men" to come to the aid of their country.… (mere)

Glad to see Sir Terry got on board with lesbianism. Disappointed but not surprised that the undeniable trans vibes in the book remain subtext however-- even Jackrum is she/her'd in the end. It's tough, because the book does an admirable job of tackling gender equality, institutional sexism, the complicity of ruling class women in the patriarchy, toxic masculinity, etc. But in the end, you're left with the feeling that Pratchett probably saw all the varied gender performances he'd written into the book as just... performances. Everyone is actually their original name and identity. The off-hand references to the unseen Captain Wrigglesworth also feel like cheap jibes.

I think I'm still going to rate this book highly, because I enjoyed it and it makes me happy to read my own ideas into the characters. Also... man, idk, maybe this is optimism, but I feel like Pratchett was very close to getting it. The book was written more than 20 years ago after all! There is something going on with how he wrote the delay and privacy of Maladict's "gender reveal" moment, and Jackrum's unwillingness to dress as a washerwoman and ultimate happy ending as a man, and even General Froc's dance with the Duchess. And there is a lot of overlap and ambiguity with wartime cross-dressing (the obvious inspiration of the plot), gnc lesbianism (which seems to have been an influence on Pratchett, based on that one Gaiman interview), and transness. The issue is unclear. And I'm not an expert. Ultimately, all I can say is that Pratchett was a man born in the 40s after all, but I believe he was a kind person. And also that Maladict absolutely rules. Everything else is interpretation.

I haven't even touched on the other main themes of the book, which deal with jingoistic nationalism, organized religion, globalization, and advancing technology, among other things. These topics are obviously more familiar territory for Pratchett, and I think he writes them well. Despite the everpresent Discworld humor, I would call this one of Pratchett's "angry" books, which are my favorites of his (see most of the Tiffany Achings and Vimeses).

Also, I know this may have further annoyed our protagonist's main-character sensibilities, but I wish we'd gotten even more of Wazzer's absolutely off-the-wall Joan of Arc epic supernatural shit. I would kill for a sequel focused on that, maybe with some background antics of Sgt Perks & Mal making trouble in the military hierarchy, Tonker & Lofty's rage against the machine, and maybe a little nontraditional domesticity from Shufti, Paul, and baby Jack.

By my oath, I am not a lying man. This is, without doubt, my favorite Pratchett novel.

bloody love it. ( )

All of Terry Pratchett's stuff is great, but this one had me howling (at least inside). Monstrous regiment indeed. I won't spoil it for you, but...read this! A lighthearted, excellent read, with one heck of an ending. Love it! ( )

Standard late-period Discworld. ( )

Re-Read 12/10/19:

A delightful Discworld read that dives head first into a little country's war problem. Well, it's not really a problem, per se... in fact, it's almost done. As in fini. Kaput. With them the ultimate losers.

So you'd think, with all the men being dead and all, they'd be more welcoming of a bit of some added support. And I'm not talking bras... or AM I?

A very funny book. There are a few coffee drinking beasties here, a troll, and even an Igor(ina). It turns into a kinda Hogan's Heroes. Or rather, Heroines. And ooooh the abominations! Cross-Dressing Everywhere!

Like all of Pratchett's best work, this book bridges its classical sources to the present day, bringing feminist and trans themes to light along with contemporary ideas about religious wars, militarism, mercantilism and geopolitics.

And all of that in a novel that flies along with such sprightliness that you'd never suspect it was pulling such heavy freight.

''Monstrous Regiment'' is most often spirited and shambolic, but it has some serious heft. Pratchett is on the side of those who make very little fuss, which means he gets to shiv those who do.

Polly cut off her hair in front of the mirror, feeling slightly guilty about not feeling very guilty about doing so.

The words "You heard me!" lined up to spring from Polly's tongue, but she hesitated. She told herself: it doesn't have to go this way. You don't have to let a pair of socks do the talking.
‘So where do [the Abominations] come from?’
‘From your fear... They come from the part that hates the Other, that will not change. They come from the sum of all your pettiness and stupidity and dullness. You fear tomorrow, and you’ve made your fear your god.’
