Snuff (Discworld, #39; City Watch #8)
Mar 15, 2012
Sam Vimes goes on holiday in the country, for some well-earned peace and quiet. Yes, there is definitely something wrong with that concept - Sam Vimes, product of the streets of Anhk Morpork and dyed-in-the-wool copper, wouldn't know (or appreciate) peace and quiet if it smacked him upside the head. He struggles with the idea of relaxation and the reality of being treated with extreme deference by the inhabitants of Lady Sybil's ancestral home and village. But then a brutal murder is committed and Sam has work to do. It's a good story and has some perfectly Pratchett moments of hilarity, solemnity, and social commentary. But the theme of what makes us human is one that has been previously dealt with in several of his earlier books, and the flow of the story was not equal to the best of his books, in my opinion. Still, it's Sam Vimes and that's good enough for me!
