Why are our people going out there said Mr Boggis of the Thieves Guild Because they are showing a brisk pioneering spirit and seeking wealth and additional wealth in a new land said Lord Vetinari What s in it for the Klatchians said Lord Downey Oh they ve gone out there because they are a bunch of unprincipled opportunists always ready to grab something for nothing said Lord Vetinari Wazir comes from Smale you see said Carrot And Mr Goriff comes from Elharib and the twocountries only stopped fighting ten years ago Religious differences Ran out of weapons said Vimes Ran out of rocks sir They ran out of weapons last century Vimes shook his head That always chews me up he said People killing one another just because their gods have suabbled Oh they ve got the same god sir Apparently it s over a word in their holy book sir The Elharibians say it translates as god and the Smalies say it s man How can you mix them up Well there s only one tiny dot difference in the script you see And some people reckon it s only a bit of fly dirt in any case Centuries of war because a fly crapped in the wrong place It could have been worse said Carrot If it had been slightly to the left the word would have been liuorice On consideration I would say Jingo is my 2nd favourite book of the Ankh Morportk City Watch series right after Night Watch and my 3rd favourite in the complete Discworld series after Night Watch and Hogfather It was due to this book I decided that I want Sir Samuel Vimes as my literary husband I am truly sorry Mr Darcy but you just have to move on In any case you have Lizzy Bennet and the adoration of the rest of the world to console you and yes we can still be friends and my secret crush for Vetinari started And if I were an educational authority preferably with international competence I would make all the politicians of the world read it and discuss it in class and write essays about it and if they scored higher than C then and only then would I allow them to hold office of any kind But it is wishful thinking as well as longing for Vetinaris and Sam Vimeses in the worldIn Jingo Terry Pratchett is actually waging a bitter and deeply sad one man war against nationalism racism religious fundamentalism territorialism and all kinds of nasty ISMS invented by men and he does it the way he knows best by making you laugh out loud and think And there is no better way to do it in my book anyway

Jingo Author Terry Pratchett Download ï 2 Always been a perfectly good reason to start a war Never so if it is over a 'strategic' piece of old rock in the middle of nowhere It is after all every citizen's right to bear arms to defend what they consider to be their own Even if i. The Complete Discworld RereadI am a Granny Weatherwax guy With no hesitation You ask me which Pratchett story arc is the best and I will yell to the world how awesome the witches of Lancre are But I got a dirty secret it wasn t always this way to me Granny is the other woman the one I left my first love for Before I fell in love with Granny I was a city watch man through and through Reading Jingo again has reminded me exactly whyIt is not the best book of the Discworld series not by a long shot Even against the other city watch books it probably sits in well bottom half for sure Behind Guards Guards Feet of Clay and Night Watch definitely Been too long since I read The Fifth Elephant but I remember it being pretty good too So let s give it the fifth spot and go from there So the fourth or fifth best book in my second favorite subplot of a large series and I still flew through and gobbled up every damn wordA small tactically worthless island appears out of nowhere between Ankh Morpork and Klatch Of course both sides claim it and suddenly peaceful relations turn sour A diplomatic mission from Klatch goes sour and soon enough war appears to be the only result But it should be over uickly right just as soon as those foreign dogs get a taste of cold steel they will run to the hills rightNot the most subtle of book but Pratchett is known to hide a single piccolo in a brass band If you are looking for the in jokes they are always there but there are plenty of big jokes to play around with even if you don t see them This time we are dealing with national politics war racism and immigration and of course national jingoismThere is an early scene in this book that sums up everything I love about Pratchett and it is only a few pages long But our good friends Colon and Nobby are watching the cities jingoistic sailors prepare for way specifically a sign painter who has missed a letter e in the Pride of Ankh Morpork And while they wait for their minor schadenfreude Colon educates Nobby on the politics of the situation strait from the reliable sources of what some bloke told me in a pub Nobby sits and pokes holes in every amount of Colon s non PC argument by agreeing with in in a very telling way It is a conversation that could be held in any bar across the country and it is damn near perfect All tied together at the end by the two sharing a minor victory as the man painting his ship finds the mistake they have been watching forAt this point the City Watch as grown so large that only a few members get any actual development in the book most just stick to their old roles or give a bit of comic relief Carrot is established at this point certainly not a king but a man people can t help but follow all the way to a foreign country if need be Sadly Angua may as well be invisible this is a rare Pratchett outing that forgets to give the female characters anything to do at all Nobbs learns a bit about love and Vimes learns once again that he is bought and sold I had never before noticed that Vimes shows apparent growth in each book of his story arc yet in each is in the exact same place by the end he just gets a new title or concession thrown his way after the Patrician is done pulling all the right strings well wasn t the Patrician this time but strings were still pulledNot sure why I don t rate this one as high as some of the earlier ones Perhaps it is because all the watch is present but few have much to do The relative lack of Angua especially is missed It is very over the top in making its point this time around the Ankh Morporkians are so stupidly sure of themselves against their uncivilized neighbors it should be laughable if history didn t show people with that misplaced confidence time and again And of course the whole Vimes is in a rut thing is starting to showBut I liked it better than I remembered Humor Still top notch If you don t find a zombie catching rats and calling it a foreign disease hilarious you have no soul especially when you learn of the cure And who can forget rival street gangs putting their thumbs in their ears and chanting together a silly little nonsense Good stuff And I have always wondered where you find lowerglyphics what it means when seaweed is wet and why someone would carry around a life sized inflatable donkey I enjoyed Vimes new rival 71 Hour Ahmed who has a very uniue way of keeping people off guard I was also fairly impressed about the eventual conclusion to the early stories crime the war itself came later Everyone suspects everyone even themselves and both sides wanted to claim the criminal as their own is a different type of thingNot the best but a solid entry4 Stars
