It must have been a surprise, breaking into a cellar and meeting something like Willikins. Vimes : Tell me why you helped Brick. Why should you care about a slushed-out gutter troll? Vimes : Because someone has to! Carrot : Well, technomantic Devices look like things that are built, you know, out of - Vimes : Captain, you've lost me again.

What are Devices and why do you pronounce the capital D? Angua: Serves you right for drinking Sally: Oh ha ha. I am perfectly fine with sarcastic pause "vine" thank you! Fred: War, Nobby. What is it good for? Nobby: Dunno, Sarge. Freeing slaves, maybe? Fred: Absol—well, okay. Vimes: Don't look at me when you say that.

Detritus is one of my best officers! Carrot: Now, Lance-Constable, have you ever seen a dead body? Sally: Strictly speaking, No. Helmclever : I refuse to comply with your request! Carrot : It wasn't a request. Angua: You resisted for about four seconds, and then I brought you down.
Rereading Discworld, one book at a time
Sir Reynold Stitched: We've had a burglareah, officer! Nobby: A burglar rear? I suspect the latter, but could easily be wrong. One of the good things from that time in hospital was an introduction to Terry Pratchett. Just before going to ICU my son began reading Thud! Somehow the book travelled with him to the ICU. While he was in a coma I knew there was nothing I could do to help, but I wanted to be with him. Then, noticing the Pratchett book, I started reading Thud! I began reading them chronologically, not exclusively, but always coming back to them.
Now I think of them as cleansing my palate after reading a disturbing or disappointing book. But Thud! At the same time I think of all the other families born into poverty or living in countries where only the wealthy could afford a bone marrow transplant.
Like Liked by 2 people. Sorry for my rambling comment. It was an amazing feeling when your post took me back eight years. My son spent his 18th birthday in the ICU. Actually the shutting down of the city can be seen as a brilliant bit of foreshadowing. As described above it is carrot who shuts down the city and Vimes actually asks himself if he would have the guts to do that. And in this we can see the difference between Vimes and Carrot. While Carrot is a good man who can knows when to break to rules for a good cause Vimes knows he is not a good man and so has to hold himself in check.

It is this iron will to serve the law that allows him to hold the summoning dark in check. Now is not the time to find out why I have so many. Why do you consider Thud! Though I feel like this too is somewhat unnoticedly subjective — endorsement of critical thinking Small Gods is the least subtle Pratchett book is accepted but anti race war sentiments here seem a step too far. I just wish, again, that these opinions and preferences have been voiced in more detail because they are hard to make sense of.

And if you did it for a good reason, you'd do it for a bad one. You couldn't say 'we;re the good guys' and do bad-guy things. But if he doesn't solve the murder of just one dwarf, Commander Sam Vimes of Ankh-Morpork City Watch is going to see it fought again, right outside his office. With his beloved Watch crumbling around him and war-drums sounding, he must unravel every clue, outwit every assassin and brave any darkness to find the solution. And darkness is following him. There are some things you have to do. Whenever I read his stories I find myself thinking that he is "grown up".
