Still trying to be a good little poster and not hijack anyone’s thread.
Pat, if you liked Jingo, I suggest you pick up some of Terry’s other books. Pratchett’s got a nice little setup for Discworld; he’s got three or four main sets of characters, which he alternates focus on for each book. Jingo is one of the City Watch books; if you like the characters, try Guards! Guards!, Feet of Clay! and Men at Arms. I have to say that the Watch books are some of my favorites as well (Guards! Guards! was my first Discworld book), but I also enjoy the Witches. And anything with the staff of Unseen University in it.
Any other Dopers out there read Pratchett? I know cher3 does, but anyone else? And cher3, which was your favorite?
And the problem with small furry animals
in corners is that, just occasionally,
one of them’s a mongoose.
