Snuff --Pratchett
Audio performance by Steven Briggs
4 stars

Commander Sam Vimes is on vacation in the not so peaceful countryside. It’s not much of a vacation, but that’s all right with Sam. He would rather fight crime and defend the rights of all sentient people, including the previously unrecognized goblins. Gotta love him. I also enjoy the low humor, the satire, the word play, the colorful characters and Steven Briggs’ outstanding audio performance. Sam was working hard in life threatening situations. I was enjoying my vacation in Discworld.

Cora (corareading) | 1311 comments The Disc World series is why I voted for satire. I hope to get back to the series soon.

I was also hoping for satire. I made my library requests in anticipation. I suppose I could stretch a bit and tag this one 'society'. Pratchett is clearly using Discworld to make some acerbic social commentary.
