Hey, I just read Jingo on Saturday. That was the first Terry Pratchett book I have read. It was quite fun. I identified with Nobby. Haha.
He is this ugly character that was complaining about his lack of success with the opposite sex.
When he told this to another character she suggested a few people, each person he would have something bad to say about.
Her response. (paraphrased)
“I have seen this syndrome before, they say they want to meet their soulmate. But, when it comes down to it, they tell you she needs to have skin of silk, and a chest that would feed a herd of cows.”
Too funny. I enjoyed the book. It was alot of fun.
I am currently reading “The Ultimate Good Luck” by Richard Ford. I am about halfway through. It is very hardboiled, and visceral. I am enjoying it.
