The news of Terry Pratchett’s passing may be the first sad thing associated with his name. Plus, you get a novel centered around Death, the only character in every Discworld book. He’s the reaper, certainly, but grimness isn’t really his bag. His life was spent spinning yarns as fantastical as they were funny. The Discworld books manage to satirize nearly every topic under the sun while also presenting a fully formed and innovative fantasy world a la Middle Earth or Westeros. There were always jokes, but Pratchett was an even better storyteller than he was a satirist. He may be the most reliable character for laughs in the entire canon, so don’t fear the reaper.

Comments to eBook Thud!: A Discworld Novel

Like many Terry Pratchett fans, I have already read every Discworld book, many several times. With the hole that has been left by the passing of Sir Terry we will all keep desperately looking for a way to get MORE. Stephen Briggs' performance of many of the Discworld books is definitely one of those places to look to fill the Pratchett gap. I have purchased several of the audiobooks and I have to say, this one is probably the best. In fact, when I finished listening to it, I just went back to the beginning. Listening to Audiobooks of novels that you have already read in a world that you have thoroughly imagined is such a double edged sword: what you interpreted in your mind may be really challenged by the performer. I have to say, Stephen Briggs interpretations are now ingrained in me. With the subtlest shift of voice he gives complete distinction to each character and after a very short while, these voices have become the way I hear the characters. You can read all of the reviews of "Thud" itself for story and such, I just wanted to note for those searching for a way to get a bit more Terry Pratchett now that the tap is turned off, that this is a great way to experience it as if it were new.

I always find it hard to decide whether these ratings are correct. Is there some violence? Yes--some street fighting, a murder, some dead bodies found. Not too much description. Threats of violence that are scarier to this reader than the actual violence (Sam Vimes fears for his wife's and his baby's lives). Is there sexual content? Yes. Some lesbian innuendo that might go right over most readers' heads; references to pole dancing; a character described with every euphemism possible that relates to a woman with--er--great...tracts of land, shall we say. So it's probably not appropriate for reading to young kids (age 5-9) unless you want to answer some embarrassing questions. What I love about this book in particular is the analysis of the political situation in Ankh Morpork. So like what we were going through the first time I read it, back in the early 2000s. It is as appropriate now as it was then. And I absolutely love the part where Sam is running through the cave, aware that he's missing his 6pm reading time with young Sam, shouting out the words to the book he's memorized. Overall, I think this is one of the best Disc World books. But to each their own.

I'm not kidding, I keep returning to the late Sir Terry Pratchett and have rarely been disappointed!
And I admit to having kind of a crush on now-Duke Samuel Vimes of Ankh-Morpok. He is just disrespectful enough to keep himself and others honest, and he is honest enough to know that he recognizes criminals because he has some of their own tendencies resonating in his own slightly tarnished soul.
The great question of who started it, the Dwarves or the Trolls is finally settled here, and, as is so often the case, the truth shall make ye fret, to steal from another Pratchett book that I also loved, "The Truth," and fret not, Pratchett-lovers, it is all brought to a conclusion as only Sir Terry can. I'm going to miss his writing terribly, and this book is one of the many reasons why. Detritus gets a surrogate son, Vimes' own son is introduced in a very touching way that shows that Vimes' heart is battered yet healing because of the work and more importantly, because of his good wife, and Vimes gets an ally -- actually, several allies -- that one can only hope will be seen again.
The original name of the game of chess' final move, "checkmate," was "shaykh ma'at" or, in English, "the governor is dead," He isn't yet, but it is a very near thing, and Pratchett brings it to a wonderful close.

Thud is the 34th discworld novel written by Terry Pratchett. This book returns to Ankh Morpork and the to the cast of characters in the A.M. City Watch. Pratchett has been trying to move the technology of the discworld on. We've had the clacks, the Times, the postal service and in this book a whole bunch of engineering, some riots, some assassins and some murders. There's also a million year-old demonic life force to contend with. Stuck in all of this is 'Mister Vimes'. Vimes has clearly become one of Pratchett's favourite characters. And why not, there's a lot you can do with Sam Vimes. This is a darker novel compared to most of the discworld oeuvre. It's not quite as serious as Nightwatch but it explores darker themes and the sense of humour is less ebullient. Nevertheless this is one of the best discworld novels due to its complexity and interweaving of various comic and tragi-comic themes. Let's just say that Tawnee is a classic Pratchett creation and a romantic Nobby Nobbs is truly frightening. Go on read "Thud!". You know it mages twisted sense.
