Guards! Guards!

Last week I finished reading Guards! Guards! by Terry Pratchett. It's another adult Discworld novel, and it was entertaining from start to finish.

Commander Sam Vimes, newly-minted Constable Carrot, Nobbs, and the rest of the motley Ankh-Morpork City Watch have their hands full when a secret society unleashes a dragon on the city. Things go from bad to worse when the dragon crowns himself king.

Commander Vimes will need the help of dragon-breeder Lady Ramkin, the Watch, and an orangutan to stop the city from being burned to cinders.

Very clever, very funny, very exciting.

A lot of famous Discworld characters are introduced or established in this novel. I'll be reading it again sometime.

Take heart and face your dragon. As Sergeant Colon says:

"The people united can never be ignited!"
