I've never said that I hate Pyramids. In fact I'm pretty sure I've said how much I enjoy the start of it - the bits in the Assassins' Guild. :P


I agree. That was the best part of Pyramids. :)

That's a really great passage :D

Jocasta Wiggs, swimming in the shit, utterly dependent on the goodwill of Sam Vimes, and knowing it.

And knowing that even if he lets her out, this is only the start of her woes.

Having to squelch back accross the City soaking wet, and not just with water. And it's a long walk from Scoone Avenue to Filigree Street. (Vimes will have taken her money for the Watch widows and orphans fund, so she can't even call a cab - and what cab would take her?)

The subsequent debriefing with Miss Alice Band. Nobody can do dark sarcasm in (or out of) the classroom like an Assassins' School Teacher.

The derision of her peers.

And finally the dry-cleaning bill.
Used to be too clever by half, but by virtue of consistent drinking, now only too clever by about a quarter. Banned from all BBC messageboards for being too much of an "uncceptable editorial risk".

Well... almost everytime I read Discworld material i get images like in a movie.... but the funny thing is that its a movie with subtle differnces everytime its re-read. a bit weird really. Some of the more prominent ones were...

Lu Tse pulling (educating?) the Auditers on Rule One.

In fact, every time one of the book starts with a description of Great A'Tuin. i get pictures like a Star War movie with the... y'know the cruiser thing right after the big fat space floating words... only in different angles or effect in relation to the narratives...

And the Toothfairy's place. Because i re-read Hogfather recently. yes... crayons.
In order to disagree with something, one must first acknowledge its presence. Most people tend to forget that. [:d-_-b:]

The cinema in Moving Pictures was something that stuck with me for a while, very eerie, probably because it's so close to the truth!

A while back I was trying to think of a scene I had seen in a film, where two people were watching a dragon fly by burning houses and rising on the updrafts.... Took me a few days to realise it wasn't a film at all! :lol:

In a broad sense: how every Watch book has also been a book about Vimes and Sybil, starting from the very beginning. We get to see them grow together, rather than having their relationship shunted to the background.

In a narrow sense:
- The "humorous" ie: incredibly depressing clown funeral in Men at Arms.
- The sound and vibration of the clacks towers. I can almost feel it.
