I know, was just hoping to grab it in a shop nearby. I never bought it yesterday cause I thought I would be able to get it for a fiver in Tesco today.

Still havnt finished UA, I found it a bit of a slog and gave up, hope this is a return to form!

I didn't think about that, either way, I got the sides of the pages a dark whilst reading at work and not washing my dirty hands... :oops:

We do actually have some which nice white, cotton gloves we occasionally wear for making very special films, but I think the last time they were used was when the boss made Indy IV... :roll:

Right :lol:

I got into the habit of covering my dust covers . Takes two minutes but keeps them immaculate :D
Gloves would just be a bit obsessive . :D

.This is a spoiler, do not read if you haven't already read Snuff



























I enjoyed reading your review as well.
I mostly agree with what you wrote too.
I am not really into the City Watch type of books, though I have read them all, but this one was different.
I liked the book, it was much, much better than UU.
I loved young Sam's obsession with poo.
The trip down Old Treachery was a very exciting part.
I don't like analysing book content either, I read a book because I want to be entertained & this one did entertain me.
Yes, it was predictable that Stratford would get his just deserts, but I didn't realise how untill it happened that Willikins would be the one. I thought Stratford would escape again.
Best wishes,
Tiff

This seems to be the spoiler-free topic, so I'll ask it here. Can anyone tell me what the general opinion of the book is, without spoilers of course? I mean, we haven't seen Vimes in a while. Is it different than the other Watch books?
