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.

Snuff was the 8th and final novel in the Watch subseries of Discworld. Vimes reluctantly goes off on a “vacation” to the country with his family. His impressions of the country, having spent all his life in the city of Ankh-Morpork, are amusing, and naturally he manages to find a mystery to solve ...

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...

Mr Pratchett greatly undervalues the importance of chapter breaks, if only so I know where to stop for the night. So Vimes' wife has convinced the Patrician to send him off on vacation. The last time Vimes left the city, he got sucked into a mess in Uberwald. And now, he's visiting the family seat...

~~Moved from GR~~ Snuff by Terry Pratchett Before reading the book, my emotions were a perfect mix of trepidation and excitement. I love Vimes books. Love them. Night Watch is probably my favorite fantasy book ever written. At the same time, with the author's declining health, I was afraid a Vimes...

It had Vimes--who I love--and dealt with big topics like slavery but somehow it was missing something that I can't put my finger on. I wanted to love it but I just couldn't and now I'm just a wee bit sad.

I go through different stages of Pratchettism throughout my life. Sometimes I can't do without Death, other times, I love the witches more than anything else. Then I've got to have my wizards. Lower down on the rung of things, I disliked the Night Watch more than I've ever disliked anything in Discw...

Nice read, but a bit too "safe" and formulaic (for anyone who's read any other Watch/Vimes books by Pratchett).

Pratchett somehow manages to take an allegory about race and prejudice, set it in a corner of his medieval Discworld that's straight out of Jane Austen, and wrap it in a rollicking Sam Vimes adventure. Fabulous.
