This book has been a re-read for me and I remembered, for some unfathomable reason, that the Night Watch had to go down into the sewers of Anhk Morpork to fight the dragon. Which they clearly did not do. Oh well, I don´t know what I was thinking. Guards! Guards! is Pratchett´s take on dragon lore ...

Reblogged from DEATH OF RATS: Squeak. Squeak. Squeak. Sq-u-u-u-e-e-e-a-a-a-k! There is genuinly not much that I can add to the DEATH OF RATS´ review of the Hogfather. This book IS bloody awesome. Book: Any- and everything Terry Pratchett.

Well, the third week really hit my bingo experience out of the ballpark this year -- and not only because it finished with my first completed bingo; that was actually just the icing on the cake. But it included no less than three absolutely knock-out fabulous books, plus a fourth that was almost as...

It's got a "knife to a gun fight" reference (only involving porcupines) and a [literally] kick-ass heroine, takes digs at Aladdin and The Lord of the Rings -- especially The Two Towers --, the Four Horsepersons of the Apothe...ca...thingamagig make an appearance, and the Librarian is taking a stand ...

Hmm. I suspect like other early Discworld books (particularly Equal Rites), I'm going to come to like this one considerably better upon a reread. Going by first impressions, it begins with a hefty shower of sparkle, and both dialogue and plot hit high points whenever either of the two female leads...

Series: Discworld #4 Definitely not one of the stronger books in the series, but listening to it was enjoyable enough.

I read "Hogfather" twenty years ago. This is the first time I've re-read it since. The experience has shown me once again that no man can step into the same river, or in this case, book, twice. I'm not entirely the same person. These are not entirely the same times. So this is not the same book. ...

... and another yearly Christmas tradition right here, the annual Hogfather reread. Or relisten (thank Heaven for Nigel Planer's narration). Much has already been shared (and the whole book is one huge piece of quotable writing, of course), but anyway, this is one of my favorite bits not mentione...

Series: Discworld #20 A seasonal read that is just as fun as always, pretty much. There's lots of snarky commentary and adventures with the wizards, Susan, and the Death of Rats. I'm not sure what else to say, so I'll point you to my previous updates and a previous review. Previous updates: 65 %...

Series: Discworld #2 In which we experience more Rincewind and Twoflower shenanigans and we learn the Librarian's origins. Alright, so at this point the Librarian hasn't been previously introduced, but he becomes such an iconic Discworld character that I feel he's worth a mention. Oh, and we meet ...
