Racial tension between Dwarfs and Trolls threatens to overflow into full fledged war and Commander Sam Vimes is the only man standing between them. Vimes must battle not only two species but a mysterious darkness. Oh and he must read to his son every night.
Terry Pratchett‘s books have matured over the years, moving from frivolous fantasy to fantasy that actually is a commentary on real life. These days, Pratchett’s books make you think as well as smile and laugh out loud.
Sam Vimes is a brilliant character and one that just seems to get better and better. Along with the other Watchmen, Vimes keeps the law in a place that is not famous for such a thing.
Thud! is a brilliant book, possibly one of his best.
