Jingo Summary

Jingo: (Discworld Novel 21) by Terry Pratchett

'IT WAS SO MUCH EASIER TO BLAME IT ON THEM. IT WAS BLEAKLY DEPRESSING TO THINK THAT THEY WERE US.'

War is brewing on the Discworld.

An island has appeared from the ocean depths, right in the middle of the sea which separates the proud empires of Klatch and Ankh-Morpork. Of course, no one would dream of starting a war with the neighbours without a perfectly good reason . . . such as a 'strategic' piece of old rock, for instance.

But when a Klatchian Prince is almost assassinated, peace talks break down and violent nationalism begins to spread. Ankh-Morpork prepares to fight. Only thing is, they don't have an army. Or much in the way of weapons.

Commander Sam Vimes and the 'officially disbanded' City Watch get caught up in a deadly political game where the enemy appears to be on both sides and no one will listen to reason.

And if they don't stop this absurd war, no one will . . .

'Generous, amusing and the ideal boarding point for those who have never visited Discworld' Sunday Telegraph

Jingo is the fourth book in the City Watch series, but you can read the Discworld novels in any order.

Jingo Reviews

'Pratchett's writing is a constant delight. No one mixes the fantastical and the mundane to better comic effect or offers sharper insights into the absurdities of human endeavour' * Daily Mail *
'Generous, amusing and the ideal boarding point for those who have never visited Discworld' * Sunday Telegraph *
'Vintage Pratchett... Perennially funny...A sharp satire on the futility of war' * Metro *
'One of those rare writers who appeals to everyone... He satisfies the need for fast-moving breathtaking plots with entirely satisfying endings, and the equally primitive desire for an alternative world, full of thrills but benign, into which one can step for pleasure and enlivenment' * Daily Express *
'Both his inventiveness and his moral shrewdness seem inexhaustible' * Daily Mail *
