To me the Vimes novels are the best of Terry Pratchett and I am very sad that he can never write another.
The book is endlessly clever and funny, a hard thing to achieve.
The reader is The Only Reader for Terry Pratchett's work, because he gets it. He understands what Terry was trying to say and is able to put it across faultlessly.
So why are you reading reviews when you could be listening to Night Watch. Go on. Buy it.
Pratchett and Briggs nothing finer.
In loving memory forever. If you haven't read Discworld you are missing out on a grand adventure. Stephen Briggs is a master at narration and Terry Pratchett is a genius.
Pratchett's observations on human nature are sometimes considered comical. I guess. More often than not, however, they are simply true, and the bald truth elicits surprised laughter. Listen and learn.
I consider this the best of one of my favorite authors. A fun, gritty time traveling adventure in Ankk Morpork. But,as usual, there is much more than meets they eye here. Through his fantasy Sir Terry provides incredible insight into the challenges of policing and society.
This should be a must read in today's discussion of policemen's role in society, and how much physical violence is appropriate in keeping the peace. Just brilliant.
I have listen to this book three times and the magic of it never fades.
The Internal conflict of Sam Vimes and the bittersweet revolution is what really makes this story.
The final scene in the graveyard is humorous, philosophical, and bittersweet all at once with none of the elements overriding the others.
Yes and I cried at the end.
The stealth puns.
