Recommended for: anyone who needs a quick, light read
Read from April 26 to 28, 2011 — I own a copy, read count: 2

Not my first time through this one, but I have a knack for forgetting Terry Pratchett plots immediately after finishing each book. I suspect that's because there's always some highly-symbolic twist in the last fifty pages that I'd just as soon pretend wasn't there. I hadn't remembered the one in Thud!, and it was just as forgettable the second time around.

Chalk it up as another good Terry Pratchett novel. There's some hand-waving about Grand Concepts in the final stretch like always, and the rest of the book is solid, cheeky humor and fun. I'm willing to take the bad with the good, at least for a book to curl up with when I'm sick.

But it ain't great literature, and anyone who tells you otherwise is probably selling Discworld merchandise of one stripe or another.
