One of the review quotes on the back of this book says something like, "Terry Pratchett's books are almost always better than they need to be." I think this is a pretty good assessment. If Pratchett's books were nothing more than humorous fluff, I would probably still read and enjoy them, but the added depth of character that he brings to his novels is what keeps me reading them over and over again.

In this enstallment, we find Sam Vimes trying to once again bring a semblance of peace to the chaos that is Anhk-Morpork. The anniversary of Koom Valley, an historic battle between the trolls and the dwarfs, is coming up, and Vimes is doing everything he can to prevent the battle from being re-enacted in the city streets. This isn't easy, especially since a respected dwarf leader has turned up dead, and it looks like a troll may be the culprit. Equally important, Vimes needs to be sure he's home every night to read to Young Sam from The Book, aka Where is My Cow?.
