Monstrous Regiment by Terry Pratchett
Over the last twenty years I have read all (nearly all) of the Discworld books by Terry Pratchett. It would be difficult to choose my favourite as all have some fond memories, however Monstrous Regiment has to one of my favourites. Then this weekend at the Toy Soldier Show, I was in discussion about books based on Black Powder fantasy and I found myself recommending this book. YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE - Mark!
Monstrous Regiment - the 31st Discworld book and in my opinion one of his best. But as stated above, it is so difficult to choose a 'best' amongst so many greats. I also found my self reviewing the story - searching the Net for a suitable quote, but with this particular story it is so difficult to do without giving away main threads of the story. You will just have to take my work for it and go out and buy a copy!
Given the content of this Blog, I would be amazed if Pratchett was not known to my followers, however any one who is yet to discover the wonders of this author should go out now and buy a Discworld book - you will not be disappointed.
