I can "hear" Vimes spine crunch after he picks Lady Sybil up and begins to run with her. :lol: :lol:

IMO the star of Guards Guards is Carrot. His naivety is hilarious and without him, Vimes would still be a drunken bum in the gutter, and the Watch, a joke.

Yes ...lots of people introduced to us, the book establishes a number things which are built on in the later books, Sam and Sybil, Carrots character and Royal blood line for examples. 8)

And it is a cracking good book with intrigue and comedy from the first page to the last.

If I ever recommend a Discworld book to a New comer it would be this one. :)

The beginning with the passwords is one of my favourite Discworld bits in all the books. :lol:

Woah there guys! :lol:

Let's hold the discussion for the actual discussion! :wink:

I've got no problem with using G!G! as the next discussion book, but the discussion will start on the first Monday (6th) of July.

That gives you all a couple of weeks to read or reread Guards! Guards! :D

Is this coincidence or kismet or something else? I hadn't seen this thread until a few moments ago. I finished re-reading Guards! Guards! about an hour and a half ago...
