Enjoyable book, nice story, and the Discworld is still very interesting, but the fun and humour of the first Discworld books aren't there anymore. Shouldn't surprise me after 39 books.... ( )

Back to his greatest - loved this one, as I love Vimes and his storyline. ( )

This was a slow start for me - I've only read two or three other discworld novels ever - I nearly gave it up about halfway through. I'm glad I continued. There is of course an entertaining story, but there is plenty of social commentary buried within the tale. A solid 3.6 and worth the read if you are curious. ( )

Terry Pratchett is a genius. He says more about our society in a few pages of fantasy that "more serious" writers dream of. This may be my favorite discworld. Although I know I say that a lot. ( )

First of the Sam Vimes books that I've read in a while.

Sam, his wife and child go on holiday to stay in one of their large estates, and it's not long before Sam gets involved in the mass disappearance of the local goblins, and he gets implicated in the death of one of the girls. Really what's happening is that the goblins (who are classed as vermin) are being treated as slave labour and are being taken out to the plantations to grow tobacco (for the "snuff" of the title). It takes Vimes and the local constabulary to sort this out, which includes the local magistrates believing they are above the law.

Not the best of the best - there's a few loose threads that could have been tightened up or dropped altogether - but still a goodie. ( )

Pratchett is a master storyteller. He is endlessly inventive, even when telling a routine kind of tale. He gives you more information and more story than you need, just because he can, and this is completely satisfying. He is a master of complex jokes, good bad jokes, good dreadful jokes and a kind of insidious wisdom about human nature (and other forms of alien nature). I think his mad footnotes are there because he can't stop his mind whirring, and our whirring minds go with him. I read his books at a gallop and then reread them every time I am ill or exhausted.

For Emma... for helping me understand goblins.

Vimes never understood where those explosive 'What's came from. After all, he thought, what's the point of just barking out 'What!' for absolutely no discernible reason? And as for "What, what!?" well, what was that all about? What? 'What?' seemed to be tent pegs hammered into the conversation, but what the hell for? What?
Lady Sybil took the view that her darling husband's word was law for the City Watch while, in her own case, it was a polite suggestion to be graciously considered.
[said by Willikins] This is a stiletto I'm holding to your throat and it ain't no ladies' shoe, this is the real thing, the cutting edge, as it were. You are a little twit, and I ain't the commander and I will slice you to the bone if you make a move. Got that? Now don't nod your head! Good, we are learning, aren't we? Now, my lad, the commander here is trusted by Diamond King of Trolls and the Low King of the Dwarfs, who would only have to utter a word for your measly carcass to come under the caress of a large number of versatile axes, and by Lady Margolotta of Uberwald, who trusts very few people, and by Lord Veterinari of Ankh-Morpork, who doesn't trust anybody. Got that? Don't nod! And you, my little man, have the damn nerve to doubt his word. I'm an easygoing sort of fellow, but that sort of thing leaves me right out of sorts, I don't mind telling you. You understand? I said, do you understand? Oh, all right, you can nod now. [...]
