Jingo

(Discworld Novel 21)

'Neighbours... hah. People'd live for ages side by side, nodding at one another amicably on their way to work, and then some trivial thing would happen and someone would be having a garden fork removed from their ear.'

And when the neighbours in question are the proud empires of Klatch and Ankh-Morpork, those are going to be some pretty large garden tools indeed. Of course, no-one would dream of starting a war without a perfectly good reason…such as a 'strategic' piece of old rock in the middle of nowhere. It is after all every citizen's right to bear arms to defend what they consider to be their own. Even if it isn't. And even if they don’t have much in the way of actual weaponry. As two armies march, Commander Vimes of Ankh-Morpork City Watch faces unpleasant foes who are out to get him... and that's just the people on his side. The enemy might be even worse.

Discworld goes to war, with armies of sardines, warriors, fishermen, squid and at least one very camp follower.

Rezension

Zitat
"'Pratchett's writing is a constant delight. No one mixes the fantastical and the mundane to better comic effect or offers sharper insights into the absurdities of human endeavour'" Daily Mail "'Generous, amusing and the ideal boarding point for those who have never visited Discworld'" Sunday Telegraph "'Vintage Pratchett... Perennially funny...A sharp satire on the futility of war'" Metro "'One of those rare writers who appeals to everyone... He satisfies the need for fast-moving breathtaking plots with entirely satisfying endings, and the equally primitive desire for an alternative world, full of thrills but benign, into which one can step for pleasure and enlivenment'" Daily Express "'Both his inventiveness and his moral shrewdness seem inexhaustible'" Daily Mail
