Ankh-Morpok, stærsta borg Diskheims, lendir í milliríkjadeilum eftir lítil eyja birtist úti á hafi mitt á milli ríkisins og annars ríkis. Engu skiptir þótt enginn sé herinn, ríkiskassinn tómur og andstæðingurinn þekktur fyrir öflugan her. Borgarar Ankh-Morpok krefjast stríðs. Óborganleg vitleysa líkt og í fyrri bókum en hálfsvekktur yfir endinum. ( )

This book has many of my favourite Pratchett quotes in. Always a treat to read. ( )

3.5 stars. Not the best of the City Watch books, but still plenty of fun. ( )

Vetinari spends quality time with Colon and Nobby.

Ankh-Morpork gets involved in a war with Klatch and the Discworld equivalent of Atlantis, Leshp, is about to rise. It is up to the Watch, Vimes, Colon, Carrot and all the rest to find a way to prevent it. In Jingo the Discworld looks into the dark heart of war, land disputes, assassination, science and weapons development, and prejudice. Of course, Terry Pratchett does it in his special way, sneaking it in here and there and occasionally hitting you head on with it. Of course, there is a lot more going on than just two nations setting out to wage war. Commander Vimes feels like he's out of touch and losing control of the Watch to Captain Carrot, who has been actively recruiting new guardsmen. Since Carrot joined the Watch, the number of guards has grown from three men to over forty men, or actually, creatures. Thanks to Carrot, the Watch now includes dwarfs, gargoyles, a golem, a troll, a gnome, a werewolf and a zombie. Carrot is, of course, totally oblivious to Vimes' concerns, as his only objective is to uphold the law and protect the citizens of Ankh-Morpork. He has the kind of charisma that lets him organize a football game between two armies poised at the brink of war, and make criminals beg to confess. ( )
