How To Read Terry Pratchett s Discworld Novels1 Skip the first two books in the series This is crucial If you read these first you will be rightly annoyed by their just barely okayness and spend the rest of your life muttering about how overrated he is Terry Pratchett wrote these two books Then all of a sudden he started writing really really well I don t know what happened Maybe he sold his soul My own theory is that his long suffering wife waited as patiently as she could for him to pull himself together as a writer and then after she proofread his second novel something in her snapped and she thwapped him in the head with the book in uestion You re better than this damn it she shouted Now get in there and write something good And he did2 Start with the first book in one of the subseries The Discworld books all take place on the same planet but they involve different groups of peopleThe witches my favoritesThe Night Watch my also favoritesDeath granted he s not a group but he does have a familyThe wizardsOkay there are standalones like Small Gods And in a way all the Discworld books are standalones Except for the first two because the first one ends on a cliffhanger Like I said skip them until you ve read some of the really good ones and then brace yourself and read them purely for continuity purposes I started with the 23rd book in the series Carpe Jugulum and was perfectly fine other than a tendency to preach the gospel of Discworld Is Flippin Amazing And You Have To Read These Books which I m trying to get under controlBut it s a lot of fun to follow the threads To start for instance with Eual Rites which introduces you to both the witches and the wizards This isn t Hogwarts and those most definitely are not the same thing in Discworld Then you can go on to Wyrd Sisters and Witches Abroad and fall absolutely in love with Granny Weatherwax and Nanny Ogg I fully intend to be Granny Weatherwax when I grow up right down to the goat farm and the ability to terrify people just by saying Good morning Watch this spaceOr you can start with Guards Guards and be introduced to the men of the Night Watch Just bear in mind that I m first in line if Captain Vimes becomes available so keep your inevitable crush on him to yourselfI posted approximately 17000 updates while I reread this book all uotable uotes That s not even all the bits I wanted to post but Goodreads has a strict word count limit on updates because Goodreads h a t e s m e knows how I getYou can get a perfectly good sense of whether or not you ll enjoy Guards Guards by perusing said updates You will enjoy it if you already enjoy fantasy you will very likely enjoy it even if you don t generally enjoy fantasy because the humor characterization and dialogue are ridiculously goodHave a good time And remember hands off Vimes He s mine

This is my favorite Discworld bookI submit that the best way to rate a Discworld book is with a smile meter As you read imagine that there is a meter whose arrow jumps when you smile moves further right when you chuckle and spikes into the red eleven when you laugh out loudPratchett s 1989 Discworld novel his 8th in the series and 1st of the City Watch sub series made me smile all the way through the book chuckle freuently and laugh out loud two or three timesSet in Ankh Morpork inspired by Fritz Leiber s Lankhmar the City Watch is composed of those night watchmen who call out at midnight that All s well and who would not want to catch anyone or run after someone too fast to avoid ruining the evening with an arrest That is until six foot six dwarf foundling Carrot joins the force as a lance constableThis novel also features dragons described as only Sir Terry could Long thought extinct the draco nobilis was just somewhere else until a group of hooded and cowled miscreants steal a book from the Library and YES the left turn Clyde Orangutan Librarian is featured perhaps my second favorite Discworld character and summon one back to Ankh Morpork Things do not go as planned and the rest is Pratchett magicAs my esteemed reviewer colleague Nataliya noted in her excellent review the best part of Pratchett s writing is that he depicts realistic human failings in a comic setting that softens the blow of the all too real criticism in a playful way The Discworld is a lot of fun but it is also a comedic examination of humanity and civilization and it takes a master of Pratchett s genius talent to pull it off successfullyA MUST read for Discword fans and would actually be a great introduction to the series for any reader 2019 I ve read them all and this still my favorite

At the time of writing Terry Pratchett passed away about a week ago Beside making me sad the news also triggered a sudden urge to read a Discworld book which needed to be satisfied immediately I haven t read any Terry Pratchett books for years I have always liked them but there are just so many books in the world and you know how it is one thing led to another and somehow they didn t lead back to Sir Terry In the meantime I have been reading many inferior flavor of the month books like The Martian I have been doing myself a disservice really Guards Guards is one of the most popular Discworld books and I have not read it this makes it the ideal candidate for a reentry into this uniue and wonderful series Anyway it is nice to be back in Ankh Morpork the most chaotic city in fantasy fiction At the most basic level Guards Guards is Pratchett s take on the police procedural but his imagination is too immense to constrain the book to just a single genre parody so there is much to this book than just the City Watch Ankh Morpork s feeble excuse for a police force The Watch mean are happily doing a crappy job which basically involve ringing bells at certain times of the night to announce that all is well in the city It takes the arrival of an extremely honest and straight laced human orphan raised by dwarves to remind the Watchmen what they are supposed to be and a huge dragon summoned from another dimension burning up the citizens and half the city to spur them into action Art by SharksDenOne reason I only read Terry Pratchett occasionally is that I personally prefer books where humour is a minor element of the story rather than placed at the front and centre After reading Guards Guards I have to admit this is my misconception of what Pratchett was doing with the Discworld series after the first few straightforward fantasy parody books The humour takes centre stage but underneath not even far underneath Pratchett was using Discworld as a mirror to explore lampoon and critiue our world with its many ills and injustice Certainly Guards Guards explores the theme of the policemen s duty and honor against personal safety and interest what makes a good cop and a bad cop so to speak He also skewers the masses tendency to blindly accept whoever has the biggest gun or fire breathing talent These and other serious issues are explored without ever missing a humorous beat The book is a laugh fest from beginning to end I don t think there is a single page that did not make me at least chuckle I actually laughed out loud several times my favorite joke involves the phrase Bjorn Stronginthearm is my uncle which highlights the bizarreness of the British phrase Bob s your uncle Also the patrician s uestioning of dragons penchant for sleeping on a huge pile of gold instead of a comfy mattress is brilliant Don t worry I have not spoiled the book for you I am barely scratching the surface of the many ingenious satires jokes and witticisms to be found in this book Captain Vimes no idea who the artist is sorryThe characterization of the protagonists and antagonists is also very strong Captain Vimes is silly and funny yet flawed sympathetic honorable and extremely likable I am not surprised he one of Pratchett s most beloved characters The formidable Patrician Vetinari is another extremely vivid and lively creation in a TV adaptation of another Discworld book he is perfectly portrayed by Charles Dance so you can imagine the dry wit and suavity of the man His method of escaping from captivity in a dungeon is pure evil genius Guards Guards is effortlessly a five star book and if I may leave you with a uote from this book that works perfectly even out of context The reason that clich s become clich s is that they are the hammers and screwdrivers in the toolbox of communication The irony is that there is not one clich in this book unless you count the ones that Pratchett turned on their headsRIP Sir Terry you were the best Credit celticwrenNote Terry Pratchett s Discworld Might Be The Highest Form of Literature on the Planet by Brandon Sanderson
