Product description

DISCWORLD GOES TO WAR, WITH ARMIES OF SARDINES, WARRIORS, FISHERMEN, SQUID AND AT LEAST ONE VERY CAMP FOLLOWER. 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. Jingo, the 21st in Terry Pratchett's phenomenally successful Discworld series, makes the World Cup look like a friendly five-a-side.

Author information

Terry Pratchett is one of the most popular authors writing today. He lives behind a keyboard in Wiltshire and says he 'doesn't want to get a life, because it feels as though he's trying to lead three already'. He was appointed OBE in 1998. He is the author of the phenomenally successful Discworld series and his trilogy for young readers, The Bromeliad, is scheduled to be adapted into a spectacular animated movie. His first Discworld novel for children, THE AMAZING MAURICE AND HIS EDUCATED RODENTS, was awarded the 2001 Carnegie Medal.

Customer reviews

By a Book Depository customer 10 Dec 2008 3

"I am a massive fan of the Discworld series, particularly the Witches and Rincewind. I picked up Guards! Guards! a few months ago and wasn't massively impressed but the characters from the Watch have grown on me after I have read the next few in the series. When I saw this novel was next, it didn't sound as good as Feet of Clay, another novel I very much enjoyed. Yet reading through there are some very humerous quotes and it definately looks at war from very different angles than I have previous viewed! Overall I found this a very humorous read and would highly recommend it to others who have had doubt about the Night Watch series!"

Review quote

"'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'" -- Christopher Matthew Daily Mail "'Both his inventiveness and his moral shrewdness seem inexhaustible'" -- A. S. Byatt Daily Mail
