by Terry Pratchett
Ebook, 400 Pages
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Maybe the “Occupy Wallstreet” people should have read this before camping out and pooping in the parks 😉
Anyway, a very humorous look at the banking system, Anhk-Morpork style. We get good old Moist Von Lipwig[who I am enjoying immensely] and some more Vetinari stuff. He’s the best kind of tyrant 😀
And I actually found the little annoying dog funny too! Which means Pratchett wrote this well, cause I NEVER find annoying little dogs funny…
A dwarf is murdered and Vimes must solve the crime before a war breaks out between the dwarves and the trolls with Ankh-Morpork caught in the middle.
Vimes is getting old in this book, and he is getting old for me personally. It is time for a new main character, or group of characters, and a new setting outside of the Watch. I wasn’t amused very much.
Amazing Maurice and His Educated Rodents
Epub, 170 Pages
a group of mice become sentient, so does a cat and they hook up with a little boy who plays the pipes. They run scams to get rid of “rats”.
At one village they come across something bigger, a king rat, and take him down and at the end try to come to terms with the village. Make peace, as it were. Amusing and light and easy.
