So I mentioned a couple days ago that I was going to ration myself two more Terry Pratchett novels before getting back to other reading and asked for suggestions. I wound up going with Small Gods and Night Watch.
Small Gods was good and all, but I had forgotten what a truly wonderful (in the most literal sense of the word) book Night Watch was: Robert Peel meets H.G. Wells in the middle of Les Miserables as done by Terry Pratchett. It's a vanishingly rare writer that can move you from laughter to tears and back again within a couple pages.
Now I'm back to books from the New Business stack, following up Dreadnought with Castles of Steel. Robert Massie is every bit as impressive this time 'round as he was in the first one. I'm going to need to look for some of his other books.
