Description

Lord Vetinari is such an eclectic, badass, clinical antihero protagonist that it´s difficult to point the finger on if he´s evil, good, or just so extremely opportunistic and finetuning his plans to perfection that he can go with the citizens mental flow and preventively manipulate and indoctrinate. He is using his fine senses, and perfect surveillance state methods, to see trends and uses whatever good or evil methods to stay in power, a truly great Machiavellian sociopath leader. Vimes arrests Wonse, as he tries to summon another dragon, telling Carrot to "throw the book at him". Wonse falls to his death after the very literal Carrot hits him with a thrown copy of Laws and Ordinances of Ankh-Morpork. There are many horrible sights in the multiverse. Somehow, though, to a soul attuned to the subtle rhythms of a library, there are few worse sights than a hole where a book ought to be."----------------- Hey officer, may you please not help me! Stay away, don´t investigate, please, we´ll do traditional, good old fashioned lynch justice with far fewer victims and collateral damages. Not necessary to call reinforcement. No, stop, my insurance doesn´t cover police incompetence reinduced destruction.“

Okay, 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 control. Before Guards! Guards!, Discworld novels are pretty good. This book is the FIRST GREAT Discworld novel in the series. Dalila (26 September 2014). "26. 09. 2014 – NOVINKY OD COLINA SMYTHE, AGENTA TERRYHO PRATCHETTA". www.discworld.cz. Prague. Archived from the original on 2 November 2014. Městská hlídka – "CSI: Ankh-Morpork" – série 12x1h epizod. Projekt je nastartován, scénář se neustále vylepšuje, natáčet by se mělo buď v Londýně nebo v blízkém okolí. Může se s tím ale začít až v roce 2015 kvůli rozpočtovému plánu BBC. Alt URL I posted approximately 17,000 updates while I reread this book, all quotable quotes. That's not even all the bits I wanted to post, but Goodreads has a strict word-count limit on updates because Goodreads h̶a̶t̶e̶s̶ ̶m̶e̶ knows how I get.

Para mí, esto convierte a Sir Terry Pratchett en uno de los autores más brillante que he leído. Único, genio y que logra transmitir tanto pero sobretodo felicidad. Mundodisco nos da muchas cosas y lo hace de muchas maneras. The librarian gave him the kind of look other people would reserve for people who said things like, ‘What’s so bad about genocide?’” Noble dragons don't have friends. The nearest they can get to the idea is an enemy who is still alive. (p. 188) A book has been taken. A book has been taken? You summoned the Watch," Carrot drew himself up proudly, "because someone's taken a book? You think that's worse than murder?"

He is also bearing a sword presented to him in mysterious circumstances. Very mysterious circumstances. Surprisingly, therefore, there is something very unexpected about this sword. It isn't magical. It hasn't got a name. When you wield it you don't get a feeling of power, you just get blisters; you could believe it was a sword that had been used so much that it had ceased to be anything other than a quintessential sword, a long piece of metal with very sharp edges. And it hasn't got destiny written all over it.Dudo muchísimo que palabras como inteligente, ingenioso, cínico, hilarante, oscuro, desgarrador a la par que divertido realmente hagan justicia a su escritura, es una combinación maestra de todas esas palabras y obtienes esa escritura increíble que es a la vez divertida, inteligente, y debajo, todo es increíblemente oscuro y algo aleccionador.
