Guards! Guards! by Terry Pratchett (A Review)

This is where the dragons went. They lie... not dead, not asleep, but.... dormant. And although the space they occupy isn't like normal space. nevertheless they are packed in tightly. They could put you in mind of a can of sardines, if you thought sardines were huge and scaly. And presumably, somewhere, there's a key....

This tale really hooked me with its talk of dragons and other dimensions. It read partly like a classic fairytale and partly like a comedy. Captain Vimes and the Watch were particularly entertaining, as were Carrot's attempts to understand human nature. I think I'd consider this one of the best Discworld novels that I've re-read so far. It will appeal to all who are observers of the world we live in. 

This book was bought by me for my own personal collection

Action Reader's Action: Play your own part in changing the society you live in by writing to your local MP, or other government leader

Discussion point: What do you think makes a good leader?

The bit for Discworld fans: Who is your favourite member of The Watch and why?
