Overview

Men at Arms (Discworld Series #15) by Terry Pratchett

A Young Dwarf's Dream

Corporal Carrot has been promoted! He's now in charge of the new recruits guarding Ankh-Morpork, Discworld's greatest city, from Barbarian Tribes, Miscellaneous Marauders, unlicensed Thieves, and such. It's a big job, particularly for an adopted dwarf.

But an even bigger job awaits. An ancient document has just revealed that Ankh-Morpork, ruled for decades by Disorganized crime, has a secret sovereign! And his name is Carrott...

And so begins the most awesome epic encounter of all time, or at least all afternoon, in which the fate of a city—indeed of the universe itself!—depends on a young man's courage, an ancient sword's magic, and a three-legged poodle's bladder.

This is my favorite DiscWorld Novel ever! Words can not discribe this book. It is filled with many colorfull characters from other his other novels such as; Carrot, Noppy, C.O.T. Dippler, and Gaspode The Wonder Dog. I really do not know how Terry does it; he can be so funny. All and all you must read this book, or better yet listen to the audio book. Negil Planer's voices are the icing on the cake. True Story!!!!

This book is a typical Terry Pratchett, funny, compelling, fun, and engaging. Pratchets cast is not only easy to relate to, but easy to befriend, and love. One can easily find themselves missing their favorite characters if away too long. I highly recommend anything written by Sir Terry Pratchett, and Men at Arms does not dissapoint. Enjoy!

Where to start... For those that have read any of the discworld books, it is Samuel Vimes story. For those that have not read any of the discworld books, the story follows a policeman in his attempts to find a murderer in the city of Ankh-Morpark. The reason for this is, that in the city of Ankh-Morpark, no one is ever murdered; they are 'inhumed' by assassins, or commit suicide by making rock jokes in a Troll area of the city, or they commit suicide by making a dwarf joke when one happens to be present... Pratchett takes this simple concept and, like all of his works, flips it on his head. A good book to start reading Pratchett, but not the best. For that, I recommend "Monstrous Regiment", a stand alone story.

This book shows the beginnings of the new Night Watch. We get to see a lot of character development among a lot of the major players on Discworld. I wish I could write a book that was half as good as this one is. Mr. Pratchett has his satire dialed in just right, and delivers the laughs along with the moral warnings. Mr. Pratchett has created a perfect world for escapism fantasy. I highly recommend you read this, and all other Discworld books.
