Review: Jingo

Jingo by Terry Pratchett
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Jingo seems like the exact replica of my country’s woes right now. Complete with bungling security ops and ‘rush-to-action-regret-later’ Commander Sam Vimes. There was that point when Ankh-Morporkians attacked each other in the alleyways of Klatch. Hilarious!

Lord Vetinari, Carrot and Nobby are my heroes in this Discworld story.

Vetinari triumphs with his quiet thinking, planning and execution while everyone yells in panic, conviction, pain and scheming disarray.

I should copy Carrot more. Take a break and get some sleep when chaos strikes, because you’ll need the energy later when solutions are needed.

Nobby wins all, by discovering his softer side. Quite the feminist he becomes!

As always, Terry Pratchett is the master of words and storytelling!
