Niemals einen Soldaten fragen, warum er seinen Mantel nicht auszieht.
Der Anfang ist etwas deprimierend, aber es ist halt Krieg.

Es war ein Ring:
1. Charly83
2. Tiamat-muc
3. JuweWright - entwickelt sich zum Stammgast ;-) wollte dann aber doch nicht mehr

Das Buch ist heute bei mir angekommen und wird als nächstes gelesen. Danke an d-vineland fürs Zusenden.

Ein klassischer Roman der Scheibenwelt. An einigen Stellen erkennt man schnell, was dahinter steckt, aber es war humorvoll und unterhaltsam wie immer.

Das Buch reist weiter sobald ich die nächste Adresse habe.

Ascheascheascheasche - bitte teert und federt mich nicht. Das Buch ist wohlbehalten seit einiger Zeit (Januar könnte sogar sein) hier und wird nun auch seit einer Woche gelesen.

Now I'm through and it is ok. But I have to admit that I don't like the books with Vimes so much - I'm more in the witches and DEATH.

Of course there were parts I liked very much such as following...

"Well, the lion is a big ol' coward, mostly. If you want trouble, you want to tangle with the lioness. They're killers, and they hunt together. It's the same everywhere. If you want big grief, look to the ladies." p.255

">It's a saber, Magda. (...)<
>But I'm only using it like a knife, Polly.<
>It's three feet long, Magda.<
>Size isn't important, Polly.<
>No one believes that.<" p.275

The explanation where all the abominations come from: "From your fear... They come from the part that hates the Other, that will not change. They come from the sum of all your pettiness and stupidity and dullness. You fear tomorrow, and you've made your fear your god." p.283

">We all know he's a man,< she said. >But he's having such fun and he irons like a demon!<
>You won't tell the guards?<
>What?< said the girl, grinning. >And do the ironing ourselves? Anyway, we're dying to find out what happens when Daphne goes on her date...<" p.288

"Women always seemed to be doing things with their hands - holding babies, or pans, or plates, or wool, or a brush, or a needle. Even when they were talking, busyness was happening." p.374

I've already asked for the next adress so the book hopefully travels on this week...

Für coco7. Und Mr. Coco??

Journal Entry 8 by wingcoco7wing at Sprendlingen, Rheinland-Pfalz Germany on Monday, November 18, 2013
Vielen Dank! Ja, natürlich auch für Mrcoco. Obwohl wir zur Zeit ein wenig mit Walter Moers fremdgehen, man muss ja die letzten Pratchetts ein wenig hinauszögern, so viele wird's nicht mehr geben.

I loved the story. In my opinion, it's among the best. Lovely characters, great humor.
