MIGHTY BATTLES! REVOLUTION! DEATH! WAR! (AND HIS SONS TERROR AND PANIC, AND DAUGHTER CLANCY) The oldest and most inscrutable empire on the Discworld is in turmoil, brought about by the revolutionary treatise What I did on My Holidays. Workers are uniting, with nothing to lose but their water buffaloes. Warlords are struggling for power. War (and Clancy) are spreading throughout the ancient cities. And all that stands in the way of terrible doom for everyone is: Rincewind the Wizard, who can't even spell the word 'wizard'... Cohen the barbarian hero, five foot tall in his surgical sandals, who has had a lifetime's experience of not dying... ...and a very special butterfly.… (plus d'informations)

Enn ein dásamleg vitleysa eftir Pratchett. Skemmtilegasta bókin um töframannsræfilinn Rincewind og hér er hann sendur í eitt elsta ríki Diskheims sem hefur mikil asísk ummerki. Villimaðurinn Cohen og 7 manna óvígur her hans ræðst sömuleiðis gegn ríkinu. Ekki má gleyma því að töfraakademían hefur fundið upp tölvu. ( )

Interesting Times is a perfectly pleasant read, containing all the usual Pratchett tropes. It is not, however, peak Pratchett, in which we learn something profound or useful through his work. Despite this we get a handful of good laughs, some great lines, a truly magnificent set-piece battle which sees seven very old men taking on an entire army, and more puns that you can shake a wizard's staff at. Not one of my favourites but by no means bad. ( )

Ah, nothing like relaxing in a nice hot bath of Discworld. The Luggage arc is one of my favorite bits. With effort I managed not to read too much out loud to my husband. The mishmash of Chinese, Japanese and other east Asian cultures seemed weird but I suppose it's the same with Ankh Morpork which is a British/Austrian/etc. mishmash city.

You've got to love a book that has you laughing & smiling right up to the last page. Endlessly entertaining & inventive. ( )

Interesting Times is a fantastic Discworld novel, an excellent example of everything people expect when they talk about Terry Pratchett and the Discworld novels.

In a nutshell, Twoflower has taken everything he learned in The Color of Magic and The Light Fantastic and written a book about it. One thing leads to another and suddenly Rincewind is being summoned across the world to lead a revolution. The ending is a bit convenient, but it's really it's all about the journey, isn't it?

Characterwise, we have Rincewind (of course), but also the return of Twoflower Cohen the Barbarian. Great characters, just amusing as always. Especially when Cohen brings along some his entirely-too-old-but-don't-tell-them-that barbarian horde.

Also: Hex. More or less a magical computer, built on some spinning gears, ants, and a fishtank that may just have ended up sentient, it's amusing. I expect to see it again.

On the downside, there are a few times where you'll be listening along and suddenly... Wait, was that racist? The audiobook certainly doesn't help matters.

On the awesomeside: The Luggage has kids now. That's a thing.

Overall: probably my favorite Discworld book thus far (among only the Rincewind novels). It's not perfect, but it's getting there. ( )

Natural selection saw to it that professional heroes who at a crucial moment tended to ask themselves questions like "What is my purpose in life?" very quickly lacked both.
I know about people who talk about suffering for the common good. It's never bloody them! When you hear a man shouting "Forward, brave comrades!" you'll see he's the one behind the bloody big rock and the one wearing the only really arrow-proof helmet!
Fate always wins...

According to the philosopher Ly Tin Wheedle, chaos is found in greatest abundance whenever order is being sought. It always defeats order, because it is better organized.
