I read that last night myself. :wink:

The daft thing is that when I read Thud!, I assumed that they were talking about All Jolson and that he'd joined the Watch. This didn't make much sense knowing that he was such a successful businessman. :D

The name reminds me of Precious Ramotswe - I wonder if it's a reference.

Wikipedia wrote:Also, she has a more than superficial similarity to a certain Roundworld detective in Botswana, who also has a very traditional body figure.


I wouldn't be at all surprised. :wink:

So did I! :) Just goes to show that you need to pay attention when reading Pratchett.

Oh I really need to get Snuff... I have them all up to Unseen Academicals... Well my dad does. Of the over forty Pratchett books we have in the house I think I own... ONE of them. Wyrd Sisters. Wait actually I don't own it yet cos he bought it on eBay for me and I haven't given him the money yet! :(

Anyway I like the books with females in it! Susan, and Agnes, the witches... I admit that in the other books they mostly have small roles, but there are books with leading females... :D
