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.
Thief of Time
Epub, 241 Pages
Time has a baby and it gets split in two. The Auditors try using one of them to build the perfect clock, so that time stops. Death must reunite the 4 horsemen of the Apocalypse [plus 1] and Susan must tie everything together while she meets and falls in love with the perfect man[for her]. Highly entertaining. Especially when scads of auditors take on human form for some reason or another.
A good solid, amusing Discworld book. Susan really needs to lighten up though, and the ending of the book hints at the chance of that happening. And Auditors. Oh yeah, love those things 🙂

a yarn in Ahnk-Morpork about the advent of the movable type press. Subplots of intrigue and murder and Vetinari. And it all works out in the end. And Vetinari continues to show just how much of a clever bastard he really is.
This was amusing but the only part I really enjoyed was the small part played by Vetinari. Showed what a clever bastard he really is 🙂
