“Pratchett . . . has a satirist's instinct for the absurd and a cartoonist's eye for the telling detail." —Daily Telegraph (London) “The purely funniest English writer since Wodehouse.” —Washington Post Book WorldSam Vimes, watch commander of Ankh-Morpork, is at long last taking a much-needed (and well deserved) vacation. But, of course, this is Discworld®, where nothing goes as planned—and before Vimes can even change his cardboard-soled boots for vacationer’s slippers, the gruff watch commander soon finds himself enmeshed in a fresh fiasco fraught with magic, cunning, daring, and (for the reader more than for poor Vimes) endless hilarity. Did he really expect time off? As Vimes himself says in Feet of Clay, “there’s some magical creature called ‘overtime,’ only no one’s even seen its footprints.” Following the New York Times bestselling Unseen Academichals, Terry Pratchett delivers an enthralling new tale from a place of insuperable adventure: Discworld.Discworld® is a registered trademark.

0.0 Snuff (Discworld #39) (Audiobook) - DNF @ 24%
Just not feeling this one. Sybil's great but Sam is not my favorite character by a long shot, and it's just taking way too long for the actual story to begin. The sarcasm and irony is on overload too, but doesn't really have a point.

3.0 "Niuch" Terry Pratchett
Czy wyobrażacie sobie Sama Vimesa na wakacjach? Człowiek, który ma miasto we krwi i potrafi przez podeszwy w butach rozpoznać poszczególną dzielnicę Ankh-Morpork uznaje w ogóle pojęcie urlopu? Jest to pytanie, na które odpowiedzieć musicie sobie nie tylko wy, ale i on sam. I jest to dobry pomysł na ...

3.0 Review: Snuff
The sparks just didn't fly this time for several reasons: One is that I love the City Watch somewhat more than Vimes. Don't get me wrong: I adore Vimes but I love the cast of characters in them. All of them. So seeing most of them only for one or two scenes was disappointing. Then there's the simple...
