Men At Arms Summary

Men At Arms: (Discworld Novel 15) by Terry Pratchett

'PEOPLE OUGHT TO THINK FOR THEMSELVES ... THE PROBLEM IS, PEOPLE ONLY THINK FOR THEMSELVES IF YOU TELL THEM TO.'

Times are a-changing in Ankh-Morpork's Night Watch.

New recruits have been hired to reflect the city's diversity, including Corporal Carrot (technically a dwarf), Lance-constable Cuddy (really a dwarf), Lance-constable Detritus (a troll), and Lance-constable Angua (a woman ... full moons aside).

What's more, Captain Sam Vimes is getting married and retiring from the Watch. For good. Which is a shame, because no one knows the streets of Ankh-Morpork or its criminal underworld better than him.

And someone armed and dangerous has been getting ideas about power and destiny and lost kings, committing a string of seemingly random murders across the city.

The new recruits will need to learn fast ...

'Funny, wise and mock heroic . . . the best-crafted book I have read all year' Sunday Express

Men At Arms is the second book in the City Watch series, but you can read the Discworld novels in any order.

Men At Arms Reviews

'Funny, wise and mock heroic...The funniest and best crafted book I have read all year'

* Sunday Express *

'Like Jonathan Swift, Pratchett uses his other world to hold up a distorting mirror to our own, and like Swift he is a satirist of enormous talent ... incredibly funny ... compulsively readable'

* The Times *

'His spectacular inventiveness makes the Discworld series one of the perennial joys of modern fiction'

* Mail on Sunday *

'The great Terry Pratchett, whose wit is metaphysical, who creates an energetic and lively secondary world, who has a multifarious genius for strong parody ... who deals with death with startling originality. Who writes amazing sentences'

* New York Times *
'Persistently amusing, good-hearted and shrewd' * Sunday Times *
