This review is from: Raising Steam: (Discworld novel 40) (Discworld Novels) (Hardcover)
If you love discworld books, no reason to not to love this one. Has some of my favourite characters, Vimes, Moist Von Lipwig etc. that provide a comfortable warmth while new characters appear. Mr Simnel who I can't help thinking is modelled on Fred Dibnah. I love the humour he builds into the books and the way that what we accept as the norm is given a slight twist to make it amusing and slightly absurd. I always feel that there is a bit of social comment included in the book and a sideways dig at the establishment represented by Lord Vetinari. Who I always think is depicted as a self serving despot with his own rule book, but keeps the status quo. Read the other books with Moist as the main character. Can't wait for the next one.
