    Read ´ The Fifth Elephant The Fifth ElephantYou know what Goodreads really needs The ability for someone to leave multiple reviews of a book that they've read at multiple points in their lifeI'd like to talk about my recent thoughts on this book but I don't want to erase my old review or change the date on it Think how nice it would be to look back on your reading history and see how your attitudes have changed over the course of your life Books you loved as a kid that pale as you mature versus books you liked when you were young that grow even better with ageI'd love to see something like that added here What about you guysThere's worse ways to start the year than reading some Pratchett So that's what I did I've only read this one one once before and that was years back so it was fun and pretty fresh for me I'm a big fan of Vimes but even given my bias this is a great book Probably not on the level of Prat

    Read ´ The Fifth Elephant The Fifth ElephantI know that many have stated that there had been a decline in his writing as time goes on I personally would have to disagree There is a change in his writing; however I feel that it has been for the better As his book have progressed he has leaned less toward the uick giggle and insane rush of nonsense and toward a satirical plot with darker edges and the giggles interspersed within the story rather than his jokes running the storyThe Fifth Elephant is one of Pratchett’s plot driven novels there isn’t a giggle or a chortle on every page as with some of his others I have always liked the Guard’s series for this reason I like a good plot If you have not read a discworld book before I wouldn’t advise this be your starting place instead I would start at the beginning of whichever series it is you want to read This being part of the Guards Series I would start with “Guards Guards” which although it is by no means the strongest entry in the seri

    Read ´ The Fifth Elephant The Fifth ElephantSo much is happening in this 24th Discworld novelA dwarf king will be crowned in Überwald so the Patrician is sending Sam Vimes in his capacity as duke to participate in the coronation ceremony As no doubt planned by the Patrician sending Vimes ensures that justice will be done Because there is a theft a murder diplomacy a lot of very impolite werewolves vegetarian vampires and plots Oh and then there are regular wolves Gaspode and some members of the Watch Carrot Angua Detritus and LongbottomI very much liked how the spotlight shone on characters that had been explored only marginally until now Thus Carrot was not the unfailing hero here so Angua got to shine m

    Read ´ The Fifth Elephant The Fifth Elephant8510Back to form after a disappointing outing last time with Jingo This is another stonking effort in the Watch sub series making it hard for me not to start raving about them to people and tell them if they’ve not read them then they need to pick them up and get crackingPlot wise things are shaken up again I did groan a little when I learnt that Vimes would yet again be leaving Ankh Morpork for a distant land like in the last novel but this time it proved to be an inspired choice and worked really well adding in some new fresh character
