Jingo Summary

Jingo: Discworld: The City Watch Collection by Terry Pratchett

A hilarious Discworld City Watch novel, delving into the dangers of unbridled patriotism and its disastrous consequences

'Pratchett uses his other world to hold up a distorting mirror to our own' The Times

DISCWORLD GOES TO WAR, WITH ARMIES OF SARDINES, WARRIORS, FISHERMEN, SQUID AND AT LEAST ONE VERY CAMP FOLLOWER.

As two armies march, Commander Vimes of Ankh-Morpork City Watch faces unpleasant foes who are out to get him... and that's just the people on his side. The enemy might be even worse.

JINGO, the 21st in Terry Pratchett's phenomenally successful Discworld series, makes the World Cup look like a friendly five-a-side.

Readers love Jingo:

'In Jingo Terry Pratchett is actually waging a bitter and deeply sad one-man war against nationalism, racism, religious fundamentalism, territorialism . . . and he does it the way he knows best: by making you laugh out loud and think!' Goodreads reviewer,

'[Pratchett] is a word smith who weaves puns and images into sharp criticism about xenophobia, misogyny, duty . . . Pratchett was not only a fantastic writer but also a keen observant' Goodreads reviewer,

'As ever Terry Pratchett eloquently weaves a dizzying number of brilliant ideas, perfect observations, fascinating characters and humour and it works beautifully' Goodreads reviewer,

'Terry Pratchett's take on War. Funny and absurd, with a satirical view on why people start a war: greed, racism, prejudice, religion, sheer stupidity' Goodreads reviewer,

'Pratchett wraps serious issues into madcap comedy . . . A great instalment that's worth re-reading' Goodreads reviewer,
