The story is often deceptively simple and it's only with a subsequent reading that the 'real' story is revealed. It's part of the reason I wasn't impressed with Monstrous Regiment the first time. I actually didn't think very much of it at all until I reread it and started to ask myself questions.
Terry often uses the Discworld to put across an important point that is much more related to our own world. I think some people miss that point when they get bogged down on technicalities such as the way a character behaves or the way the city works. It's not a real world and therefore doesn't always conform to the same natural laws as our world.
