Night Watch (2002) Terry Pratchett

This book, for me, strikes far more political chords than funny bones. It doesn’t make it bad, it just makes it a lot darker than some other Terry Pratchett book.

(He) started in the wrong place. he didn’t look around, and watch, and learn, and then say, “This is how people are, how do we deal with it?” No, he sat and thought: “This is how people ought to be, how do we change them?” And that was a good enough thought for a priest, but not for a copper.

It wasn’t just that the city was lawless. It had plenty of laws. It just didn’t offer many opportunities not to break them.

So, good, but not one of my favorites. (It must be because there is no librarian.)
Rating: 7/10
