    First Discworld novel I couldn't finish.

    I have read and enjoyed the entire Discworld series but stopped reading this one 3/4 of the way though. Most of the book is simply attempted character developement, which gets repetetive fairly early on and stays that way, never reaching any real depth. The plot that actually existed, had it been in a well planned book, would have taken up no more than a few chapters. The book seems to be a long string of peeing, belching, sock-placement comments, targeted at a female audience, including a gratuitous lesbian couple and a girl looking for the father of her child born from a one-night-stand, and when I reached the point of the trip to a brothel follwed shortly by a scene where one of the main characters lifts up her skirt to expose her crotch to a military captain, I finally called it quits, thinking 'this is a Discworld novel?'. I get enough of this type of stuff from the rest of the media. The only things that really called Discworld to mind were the sparse cameo appearances by Vimes and his usual bunch, added in just so the reader doesn't get too homesick. The book has a little of the usual Pratchett wisdom and humor (though very little), but if it was an attempt to make some real commentary on war (he already did that in Jingo) or sexual roles in society, it fell flat there too. As an adult, I couldn't finish this book, and I certainly wouldn't recommend it to my young family members either. Disappointing.
