My husband is not a Pratchett fan, though he likes the character names. Nevertheless, I made him laugh by reading the following paragraph out loud:

"My mom's uncle was a sailor," said Nobby. "But after the big plague he got press ganged. Bunch of farmers got him drunk, he woke up next morning tied to a plow."

I've just started this book, but it seems to be the usual Pratchett excellence -- exquisitely intellectual silliness slathered liberally over sharp observations about modern political and social follies dressed up in Renaissance fair clothing.
