Is it just me or was this one badly held together (for a Watch book)? The whole goblin thing feels like a rehash of previous Discworld books - it was generally too predictable for me, the jokes and puns were pretty unsubtle/uncreative/old, and the characters strangely not as engaging as they should have been. It makes you think about Pratchett's health and wonder how much of it is affecting his writing. As it stands, Young Sam is adorable (loved the little hints about what he might grow up to be) and Willikins was the gentleman's gentleman among gentlemen's gentlemen; and were it not for the fact that the Watch books raised the stakes, I would have enjoyed this a lot more. Also, that line about yogurt. XD
