Fingers crossed there will be more scenes with Vetinari in the next book.

This is the front cover artwork for the 39th Discworld novel, Snuff, for anyone who hasn't seen it.

Re: Discworld Series

That cover looks promising. I haven't read enough Discworld books lately (I have to buy them myself if I want to read them in English, because the library only has the Norwegian translations ), so I have some catching up to to. Next time I have money to buy books, I'll remember that I have a bunch of unread Discworld books waiting for me out there.

Spoiler: show
1. Felicity Beedle
2. Ted Flutter
3. Jethro Jefferson
4. Bewilderforce Gumption
5. Tears of the Mushroom

Re: Discworld Series

Yes - not his best I thought but it had some good bits - He's given us a run of "evil" races turning out to be just like us and I find it rather repetitive.

Re: Discworld Series

I thoroughly enjoyed 'Snuff' but then I'm a sucker for Sam Vimes. I agree about the 'evil' races thing and I did keep getting a bit confused between goblins, dwarves and orcs. Maybe I just read too much fantasy! But I just loved Sybil in this, and young Sam and his poo collection was classic!

Re: Discworld Series

I do agree it felt a little repetitive, nonetheless I was rivetted to the story and its delicious wit.
