In these wildly eccentric adventures, Britain's best-selling living novelist mines a rich seam of comic fantasy that takes us to the Edge -- and beyond.
Guards! Guards! is the eighth Discworld novel - and after this, dragons will never be the same again! --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
Author Terry Pratchett keeps the laughs coming in this Discworld-set adventure. Captain Vines, a recurring character in the series, is well developed as a sympathetic and interesting character. The romantic element adds to the humor and to the story as well.
Combining knee-slapping humor with a solid adventure is often difficult, but Pratchett manages without breaking a sweat. Fans of the DiscWorld series will definitely want to add this one to their must-read selection. GUARDS! GUARDS! is also a great place to start reading Pratchett novels as it introduces many of the important characters.
