I was actually a bit disappointed by "Snuff". Yes, his Viimesness and Lady Sybyl are in top form, but I had hoped it would be a watch book, and though the watch appears in it it plays a minor role. I love the social interactions of the watch, and I was still having secret hopes of Angua and Salacia becoming a lesbian couple, although an odd one.. Their relationship in "Thud!" reminded me a lot of odd couples from Hollywood movies, like for example Humphrey Bogart and Katherine Hepburn in "African Queen" or Clint Eastwood and Shirley MacLane in "Two Mules for Sister Sara". Ah well!
