ldhenson: (riven2)
You know, I read Monstrous Regiment a month or two ago, and looking back on it I have to say: I really didn't like it. Next to Eric, it may well be my least favorite Discworld novel ever.

Keep in mind I still haven't read Wyrd Sisters, Small Gods, The Last Continent, or any of the "Discworld for younger readers" novels. Not avoiding 'em...just haven't gotten my hands on 'em.

Generally, I've found I'm not particularly fond of those DW novels that transplant 20th-century concepts wholesale (Moving Pictures, Soul Music, The Truth), because they don't seem to sit very comfortably or organically on the DW setting. Nor am I a big fan of Rincewind, though sometimes I can be persuaded otherwise.

On to spoilers... )
