I've read all of the Discworld books and have THUD on order. MONSTROUS REGIMENT is the poorest one next to SMALL GODS. Terry writes well but the story was stale and it's development hackneyed and predictable. I prayed I would be wrong about the ending but I wasn't. I'm surprised the feminists aren't upset. Aren't women suppose to put an end to war? Actually the title is the best bit about the book. It is taken from the title of John Knox's pamphlet against women rulers, especially the Catholic rulers, Mary, Queen of Scots, and Mary Tudor. He got into hot water when Elizabeth, a Protestant, came to power. None of these women were afraid to use the power of the sword. It is a shame that the book couldn't be as clever as the title. Fortunately Terry has few duds.
