Absolutely terrific. Almost like a balm for INTERESTING TIMES, this skewering of racism and othering and classism is Pratchett at his finest. Loved it.

As usual, a very amusing and entertaining novel by Sir Pratchett. This volume is about the cultural conflict between Ankh-Morpork (pigs, sausage-eaters,...) and Klatch (towel-heads,...) who go to war over an island that popped up between them.
Vetinari is a genius, as usual, and this time he takes Leonardo da Quirm and one of his inventions with him. Commander Vimes somehow manages to fit in with this terribly political surrounding but still resents helmets with feathers, white tights, purple cloaks and similar "formal" attire.

Idk why, but this book was my least favorite City Watch book so far. As always, the cultural commentary was great, and it was funny. It just felt a bit all over the place, even more than the usual amount in Discworld.
