This is probably my favorite Pratchett book, largely because I relate so well to the main character. We both are endlessly fascinated with words and have an obsessive streak which is a multi-edged weapon. The humor and mystery are as sharp as anywhere in the series, and a healthy dose of Sam Vimes and the Patrician doesn't hurt either. As a satire, it hasn't lost a thing in the decade or so since it's publication. If anything, it's probably more relevant than ever. Over and over again, the question of who's allowed to publish the news is asked. When read through the the lens of blogs, twitter, et al, the theme takes on a whole new dimension.
