We all think we're Leonard of Quirm, but it's far more likely we're at best Ponder Stibbons.
The artwork on this is really amazing even if it's not his strongest tale
I don't think it's possible to not enjoy a Discworld novel, but in the grand scheme of things, so far, this may be my least favourite outing.
I mean, 27 books into a 41-book series, one of the stories has to be a least-favourite, doesn't it? That does not, however, mean I didn't enjoy it. I absolutely did. But Cohen the Barbarian is one of my favourites and—I can't put my finger on exactly why—this one didn't quite present him the way I expected.
Likely more a failing on my part than Pratchett's, to be honest.
Pratchett lets fly sly volleys at today's civilization and skewers nearly every barbarian-fantasy cliché rampant in too many books and films. This far-out farce rollicks along hilariously enough to make the inevitable aging process, if not palatable, at least worth a few good belly laughs.
He's been a legend in his own lifetime. He 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.
