Even though I’ve been very lax recording my progress listening to the Discworld books, I have been making progress. I haven’t been reading them strictly in order since some are proving harder to borrow than others. Books since my last update:
Not my favorite. I couldn’t really connect with any of the main characters nor did I particularly care about the plot.
This one was fun. I think I prefer Death more as a side character but still the story was pretty amusing.
I’ve listened to this one before but again really enjoyed it.
Another one that I didn’t really like though it was amusing for a Discworld god to be stuck in the shape of a turtle.
Men At Arms
The City Watch books are among my favorite in the Discworld series. This one did not disappoint.
Ugh. Rincewind. Not my favorite character. However, it was interesting to see a reappearance of one of the other original Discworld characters.
I really liked most of this one. The Phantom of the Opera spoof was very amusing. The only thing I didn’t particularly like was Agnes’s ending. I’m hoping that she reappears in another book.
The Last Continent
Another Rincewind one . . . Bits were amusing but not something I’d listen to again.
Thief of Time
I liked this one quite a bit. I’m not sure I’ll listen to it again but it was good the first time. I particularly liked Susan. Her ultra-sensibleness appeals to me.
For some reason I thought I had listened to this one before but obviously I hadn’t. This was a really good book to follow Thief of Time. As always, it’s interesting to listen to Sam Vimes talk to himself. I particularly liked learning a bit more about where Vetinari came from.
