Snuff is the final chapter of Terry Pratchett's City Watch series, and it is populated by all of my favourite characters, lots of humour, a sound moral foundation, and a ridiculous plot - in other words, I loved it.

Sam Vimes, his wife Sybil, and their small son Sam go to Sybil's ancestral estate for a fortnight's vacation. Sybil has tea with all her friends in the countryside; young Sam studies natural history, with a central focus on poo, and Sam himself investigates murder, slaughter, kidnapping, and smuggling, and turns his holiday into a near-deadly venture. Nobby and Fred, Lord Vetinari, Carrot and Angua, Cheery Littlebottom, and one of the Nac Mac Feegles populate the pages and make them a delight. Of course, there is a happy ending: Pratchett always excelled at winding things down exceptionally.

This book pulled me out of a gloomy state, made me chuckle, and caused me to order more Discworld books from Amazon. I discovered that I do not own the entire City Watch series, but I will by the end of June. That is another happy ending, this one devised by me. ( )

D (Bad).

The chief of police on vacation vs goblin trafficking. Two books away from finishing this series, I am giving up. This book is problematic to a shocking degree, even compared to Thud. But what's finally making me give up on Pratchett is how badly written his later books are becoming. This is a rough draft, not a publishable novel.

Enjoyable book, nice story, and the Discworld is still very interesting, but the fun and humour of the first Discworld books aren't there anymore. Shouldn't surprise me after 39 books.... ( )

Back to his greatest - loved this one, as I love Vimes and his storyline. ( )

This was a slow start for me - I've only read two or three other discworld novels ever - I nearly gave it up about halfway through. I'm glad I continued. There is of course an entertaining story, but there is plenty of social commentary buried within the tale. A solid 3.6 and worth the read if you are curious. ( )

Pratchett is a master storyteller. He is endlessly inventive, even when telling a routine kind of tale. He gives you more information and more story than you need, just because he can, and this is completely satisfying. He is a master of complex jokes, good bad jokes, good dreadful jokes and a kind of insidious wisdom about human nature (and other forms of alien nature). I think his mad footnotes are there because he can't stop his mind whirring, and our whirring minds go with him. I read his books at a gallop and then reread them every time I am ill or exhausted.

Vimes never understood where those explosive 'What's came from. After all, he thought, what's the point of just barking out 'What!' for absolutely no discernible reason? And as for "What, what!?" well, what was that all about? What? 'What?' seemed to be tent pegs hammered into the conversation, but what the hell for? What?
Lady Sybil took the view that her darling husband's word was law for the City Watch while, in her own case, it was a polite suggestion to be graciously considered.
[said by Willikins] This is a stiletto I'm holding to your throat and it ain't no ladies' shoe, this is the real thing, the cutting edge, as it were. You are a little twit, and I ain't the commander and I will slice you to the bone if you make a move. Got that? Now don't nod your head! Good, we are learning, aren't we? Now, my lad, the commander here is trusted by Diamond King of Trolls and the Low King of the Dwarfs, who would only have to utter a word for your measly carcass to come under the caress of a large number of versatile axes, and by Lady Margolotta of Uberwald, who trusts very few people, and by Lord Veterinari of Ankh-Morpork, who doesn't trust anybody. Got that? Don't nod! And you, my little man, have the damn nerve to doubt his word. I'm an easygoing sort of fellow, but that sort of thing leaves me right out of sorts, I don't mind telling you. You understand? I said, do you understand? Oh, all right, you can nod now. [...]
