Review of Jingo by Terry Pratchett

Title: Jingo
Author: Terry Pratchett
Rating: 5/5


A story where Klatch and Ankh-Morepork fight over a there-again-gone-again island.

Wasn’t quite sure how it all tied in at first. I actually read the whole thing cover to cover, not once peeking at the back. Not an easy feat for me since there was the puzzling 71-hour Ahmed (I was most pleased on my assumption of him), the odd dis-organizer who gave predictions for Vimes (just not of his universe). And of course, I wanted to know who won, even if it is on penalties.
Along with the usual characters that I thoroughly enjoy, I got a chance to like a few others I’d misgivings about such as Poor, poor Nobby. Can’t believe I actually feel sorry for the er ... alleged human. I couldn’t get the image of him wearing harem pants outta my head for days. Hehe. ^_^
And there was Angua ... the catalyst of sorts ... I’ve a problem with fully immersing in her pov. But she’s pretty decent in this book, the best she’d been so far actually. Probably due to the lack of her thinking of fleeing. With that absent, I can finally enjoy all the Watchmen.

Finally, there’s the patrician. There’s only one thing I can say about him ...
Veni, Vici, Vetinari.
