    1. Guards Guards was the first Nightwatch novel and it introduced Sam Vimes, Constable Carrot, Corporal Nobbs and Sergeant Colon I think I preferred Vimes as a washed out, demotivated, middle aged drunk It was a realistic model to aspire towards than his incarnation in later books as a sober cigar aficionado Like many of the earlier Pratchett books, this is of a parody off fantasy tropes, in this case the kinds of background characters who are usually disposed of in short order by the hero of a d [...]


    2. Definitely 5 stars Actually, all of these omnibuses are 5 star quality, except perhaps the one about Rincewind Not very reader friendly, mind you, but they definitely look great on the shelf I found feet of clay the least interesting but atill it was really good, especially the last 30 odd pages I didn t think I would say this but I enjoyed the adventures of the City Watch than those of Death Yeah, it is that good


    3. 18 05 10 Finished Guards Guards Loved it This is the first City Watch book I ve read and I initially found that I really didn t like Cpt Vimes A drunk manic depressive It took a while to get into the book because of this, but when he stopped being so morose and got his act together, the whole book became so much better Love the other guards Carrot, Colon and Nobby are fabulous characters and I can t wait to find out what happens between Vimes and Lady Ramkin Great book Men at Arms started 28 05 [...]


    4. Terry Pratchett is one of the best writers of our time He s created a universe OK, like a world with such depth and detail that I can t think of another writer who can really get you into his her books any better Once you ve started reading the books, you ll start to know where the characters are, even before the place is named because you know it s 1 block from the Unseen University or in The Shades And the City Watch books are the best in the series with the possible exception of the Death Su [...]


    5. I have several friends who are absolutely nutty about Discworld For me, they seem to hold limited appeal Of course, it may be my own fault for having chosen an omnibus with three at once They re witty, entertaining books, and the Watch trilogy in particular has some colorful characters in a good way , but there s only so much I can take of the very same style and strangely familiar plots before it starts to get old.


    6. Thud Was my very first Discworld book It made me want to find all of the Sam Vimes books I love this character and the supporting cast around him Any discworld book featuring The Watch is going to be a great read.





    7. Reading Terry Pratchett is like eating cashews Impossibel to eat just one or just a few Completely addictive.


    8. Just as superbly excellent and laugh out loud funny as every other time I ve read them beware this edition, though, as it has a number of typos that are not present in the single volume editions.
