"May you live in interesting times" is the worst thing one can wish on a citizen of Discworld -- especially on the distinctly unmagical sorcerer Rincewind, who has had far too much perilous excitement in his life. But when a request for a "Great Wizzard" arrives in Ankh-Morpork via carrier albatross from the faraway Counterweight Continent, it's he who's sent as emissary. Chaos threatens to follow the impending demise of the Agatean Empire's current ruler. And, for some incomprehensible reason, someone believes Rincewind will have a mythic role in the war and wholesale bloodletting that will surely ensue. (Carnage is pretty much a given, since Cohen the Barbarian and his extremely elderly Silver Horde are busily formulating their own plan for looting, pillaging, and, er, looking wistfully at girls.) However, Rincewind firmly believes there are too many heroes already in the world, yet only one Rincewind. And he owes it to the world to keep that one alive for as long as possible.… (més)

Ah, nothing like relaxing in a nice hot bath of Discworld. The Luggage arc is one of my favorite bits. With effort I managed not to read too much out loud to my husband. The mishmash of Chinese, Japanese and other east Asian cultures seemed weird but I suppose it's the same with Ankh Morpork which is a British/Austrian/etc. mishmash city.

You've got to love a book that has you laughing & smiling right up to the last page. Endlessly entertaining & inventive. ( )

Interesting Times is a fantastic Discworld novel, an excellent example of everything people expect when they talk about Terry Pratchett and the Discworld novels.

In a nutshell, Twoflower has taken everything he learned in The Color of Magic and The Light Fantastic and written a book about it. One thing leads to another and suddenly Rincewind is being summoned across the world to lead a revolution. The ending is a bit convenient, but it's really it's all about the journey, isn't it?

Characterwise, we have Rincewind (of course), but also the return of Twoflower Cohen the Barbarian. Great characters, just amusing as always. Especially when Cohen brings along some his entirely-too-old-but-don't-tell-them-that barbarian horde.

Also: Hex. More or less a magical computer, built on some spinning gears, ants, and a fishtank that may just have ended up sentient, it's amusing. I expect to see it again.

On the downside, there are a few times where you'll be listening along and suddenly... Wait, was that racist? The audiobook certainly doesn't help matters.

On the awesomeside: The Luggage has kids now. That's a thing.

Overall: probably my favorite Discworld book thus far (among only the Rincewind novels). It's not perfect, but it's getting there. ( )

Whenever Rincewind shows up we're pretty much guaranteed some "interesting times..." Though I kind of feel bad for the old chap, since he clearly just wants to chill out on a deserted tropical island and eat potatoes in peace. ( )

Natural selection saw to it that professional heroes who at a crucial moment tended to ask themselves questions like "What is my purpose in life?" very quickly lacked both.
I know about people who talk about suffering for the common good. It's never bloody them! When you hear a man shouting "Forward, brave comrades!" you'll see he's the one behind the bloody big rock and the one wearing the only really arrow-proof helmet!
Fate always wins...
At least, when people stick to the rules.
According to the philosopher Ly Tin Wheedle, chaos is found in greatest abundance whenever order is being sought. It always defeats order, because it is better organized.
