really liked it

Feet of Clay is one of the darker Discworld novels. The situation is grimmer than usual, and so are the characters. The golems are tragic all the way through, Vetinari's out of action, Vimes is Taking! It! Personally! (tm TWoP) and Angua's not at all sure her relationship is going to work. The new female dwarf subplot is great (all dwarves look alike, male and female, but what happens when one of them wants to break out of their gender role and wear high heels?) But it's really the lightest of the generally pretty heavy threads.

This isn't a complaint - it's nice that there's some range in the series, and it's a thoughtful story with some really engaging elements. But it's not a laugh-a-minute by any stretch.
