It was a long wait for Santa to bring me this. It was worth the wait.

Sam is almost supernaturally capable here, but he has earned that over the many books, developing skills and contacts. And he still doubts himself, and loves his family.

Willikins was good in Jingo, but he's terrific here. Jeeves with an edge - a very sharp edge.

Good to see Wee Mad Arthur back, too.

I doubt that I'll ever see a better word picture than "a face like a bulldog licking vinegar off a thistle."

That was a great read.

This book went to some very dark places. Which isn't to say that it wasn't funny, or good, or terribly interesting, just that it is perhaps not for the squeamish. I didn't love it, like some of the others, and it didn't really kick at my heart, like others of the others, but it was still characters I have grown to love and I'm always glad to spend a little more time with them.

The hero of this book is Commander Vimes, who is my favorite Discworld character, so of course I couldn't give it a low rating. The story was interesting, if a bit of a retread. Some funny bits, appearances from many of the city watch. A decent quick read.

Classic Terry Pratchett, a very nostalgic read. His dry one-liners are unparalleled!
