Read 50 Books Challenge

2. Monstrous Regiment by Terry Pratchett

I found this book to be very readable, which was a welcome relief after reading Cradle. It has also been very enjoyable and a very quick, addictive read.  I had become a little uninterested in Pratchett of late, but with this book my faith is restored. It was funny, exciting and engaging througout with a clever story and rich characters. It was sweeping along just like the war that the book describes. 

For people that know Discworld, this is set outside of Ankh-Morpork with a new set of chatacters, though some of the watch make an appearance, so if you were to class it it would be a Watch book.

Great reading.

I give this one 4.5 out of 5

 

Some maths -

2 books out of 50 = 4%
867 out of 15000 pages = 5.78%

I too enjoyed Monstrous Regiment. Some of the plot twists kept me guessing to the end.

I have recently read "Going Postal" also by Terry Pratchett and would recommend it.

I had my suspicions but yes the revelations were done over the whole course of the book, which was nice.

Going Postal is on the shelf waiting to be read :D

Done "Going Postal" thought it lacks originality, can't say why coz it will spoil it for others.
