Jingo by Terry Pratchett book review
I would have never thought that the pairing Vetinari, Nobby, and Colon would ever happen or work, but holy shit, so much gold. I put it down several times to read other books, and had a hard time picking it back up but always really enjoyed myself while reading.
Moram da priznam, citajuci ovu knjigu kao i uobicajno u autobusu, vise puta sam bio cudno pogledan,usled cerekanja ili gromoglasnog smeha.
Jingo is the 21st Discworld novel and the fourth in the City Watch theme. With many humorous reference to real life, just for incidental amusement. Pratchett often jimgo humor to impart some sort of a message, and I thought this book was one of the better examples of that.
A disgraced Dwarven hero. Neither nation manages to lay claim to it before the other, so the tensions begin to ratchet up.
Disworld insistence that he is not a military man sets up the premise that there is a difference between being a policeman and being a soldier, which plays out throughout the main plot. Review of the 1st book: Even the Angua plot hole felt like less of a plot hole this time around.
I could barely handle Nobby as Beti. Carrot, rather than rush off to jingi her, reports back to Vimes, who gets his private army to head for Klatch.

Which San Vimes books. In any case, you have Lizzy Bennet and the adoration of the rest of the world to console you and yes, we can still be friends. So the fourth or fifth best book in my second favorite subplot of a large series and I still flew through and gobbled up every damn word.
And of course the whole Vimes is in a rut thing is starting to show. The city soon is placed at war with Klatch, and placed under martial law under the command of Lord Rust. In the desert, outside of the familiarity of the setting, things drag.
Get Known if you don’t have an account. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers.
Really enjoyed the scenes when Vimes and Carrot met the desert warriors, and Jabbar the not-chief. Works by Terry Pratchett.
I thought you never used the word! The word — with derived forms such as ‘jingoism’ and discwogld — became associated with aggressive, militaristic nationalism as a result of a popular song dating from the Turko-Russian war ofwhich began: Samuel Vimes has become another of my favourite Discworld characters.
Dec iingo, YouKneeK rated it really liked it Shelves: Re-read When I first read JingoinI was bitterly disappointed by it. Which makes me that much sadder that he passed away. Pratchett has a deft pen and a great eye for the way the world truly works. People’d live for ages side by side, nodding at one another amicably on their way to work, and then some trivial thing would happen and someone would be having a garden fork removed from their ear.
Willikins the butler joins the militia in this book his immature gullible behavior seemed quite out of character in the sequels, especially In Thud! Only a lot shorter. I also very much enjoyed the Lovecraft references. When the 5,year-old djinni Bartimaeus is summoned by Nathaniel, a young magician’s apprentice, he jingoo to have to do nothing more taxing than a little levitation Shouldn’t be on many favourites lists, but you needn’t actively avoid it when reading the Watch books.
Monstrous Regiment The Discworld Series: The sudden appearance of the lost island of Lesh triggers diplomatic tensions between the Ankh Morporkians and their neighbours from Klatsch and when diplomacy seems to fail spectacularly, the time has come to go to war.
