My latest conquest, Terry Pratchett’s Men at Arms, was possibly the second-best Pratchett book I’ve read (after Hogfather). It was very poignant, witty, and very much a social commentary on British social classes – particularly the nobility. It was also interesting in that we see Havelock Vetinari being vulnerable, and was mildly unsettling. All in all, very good and satisfying, even if Cuddy’s fate was sad and unnecessary. I was hoping his ghost would join the watch as an undead. But oh well! Onto George R. R. Martin’s Dance With Dragons! Finally.
