The sheer volume of hilarity this man gave us is incalculable. More jokes, word-for-word, page-after-page, than any other has strung together since we first started painting stick-figures of four-legged lunch on dank rock walls. More importantly, beneath the fun is an unbroken strand of brilliant conceptual thinking. Jingo is far more than a hilarious read. It is a cogent examination of human interaction, expressed with humor, wit, cunning, and sarcasm. As a writer of twenty-plus humor novels myself, I can only applaud the execution of what, at its core, is a razor-sharp observation of just what the heck goes on in the average skull. I've read the entire series and this is a history of the world, with laughs and insight. I suggest starting at the beginning, but you can start right here, with Jingo, and enjoy the genius of Discworld

Igor Ljubuncic I think this is more or less when Mr. Pratchett really started having fun with the whole series, and went ballistic with the fun part. And it shows.
