    War, huh, yeahWhat is it good forAbsolutely nothingWar, huh, yeahWhat is it good forAbsolutely nothingSay it again, why all Edwin Starr Gen rals gathered in their masses,Just like witches at black massesEvil minds that plot destruction,Sorcerer of death s constructionIn the fields the bodies burning,As the war machine keeps turningDeath and hatred to mankind,Poisoning their brainwashed mindsOh Lord yeah Ozzy Ohhh Great warrior Wars not make one great YodaWar on the Discworld.Sir Terry Pratchhett s satire on war and all things warlike from the martial to the blindly jingoistic was a lot of fun Seems a lost and forgotten island bubbles up from the depths in waters contested between Klatch and Anhk Morpork and both sides are quick to let the fans of discord blow them to extremes.More than just a parody of war, Pratchett exami...

    If you re into stuff like this, you can read the full review.9 11 Jingo by Terry PratchettBack in the day, I randomly grabbed a copy of one of Pratchett s books as I bulked up my reading list for the next day when my vacation started I woke up to 9 11 and the news of the four hijacked planes Shocked and stressed, with the news playing in its continual loop in the background, I started reading Jingo having no idea what the book was about, only that I ...

    Why are our people going out there said Mr Boggis of the Thieves Guild Because they are showing a brisk pioneering spirit and seeking wealth and additional wealth in a new land, said Lord Vetinari What s in it for the Klatchians said Lord Downey Oh, they ve gone out there because they are a bunch of unprincipled opportunists always ready to grab something for nothing, said Lord Vetinari Wazir comes from Smale, you see, said Carrot And Mr Goriff comes from Elharib, and the twocountries only stopped fighting ten years ago Religious differences Ran out of weapons said Vimes Ran out of rocks, sir They ran out of weapons last century Vimes shook his head That always chews me up, he said People killing one another just because their gods have squabbled Oh, they ve got the same god, sir Apparently it s over a word in their holy book, sir The Elharibians say it translates as god and the Smalies say it s man How can you mix them up Well, there s only one tiny dot difference in the script, you see And some people reckon it s only a bit of fly dirt in any case Centuries of war because a fly crapped in the wrong place It could have been worse, said Carrot If it had been slightly to the left the word would have been liquorice On consideration, I would say Jingo is my 2nd favourite book of the Ankh Morportk City Watch series right after Night Watch and my 3rd favourite in the complete Discworld series a...

    The Complete Discworld RereadI am a Granny Weatherwax guy With no hesitation You ask me which Pratchett story arc is the best and I will yell to the world how awesome the witches of Lancre are But I got a dirty secret it wasn t always this way to me Granny is the other woman, the one I left my first love for Before I fell in love with Granny, I was a city watch man through and through Reading Jingo again has reminded me exactly why.It is not the best book of the Discworld series, not by a long shot Even against the other city watch books it probably sits in, well, bottom half for sure Behind Guards Guards , Feet of Clay, and Night Watch definitely Been too long since I read The Fifth Elephant, but I remember it being pretty good too So, let s give it the fifth spot and go from there So the fourth or fifth best book in my second favorite subplot of a large series and I still flew through and gobbled up every damn word.A small, tactically worthless island appears out of nowhere between Ankh Morpork and Klatch Of course both sides claim it and suddenly peaceful relations turn sour A diplomatic mission from Klatch goes sour and soon enough war appears to be the only result But it should be over quickly right, just as soon as those foreign dogs get a taste of cold steel they will run to the hills, right Not the most subtle of book, but Pratchett is known to hide a single piccolo in a brass band If you are looking for the in jokes th...

    War War never changes.Unless you re talking about Discworld And then history tends to change based on what you had to eat and whether or not a football is involved And then, you need to remember the importance of knowing your neighbor s names.You know this second time reading this was much interesting than the first I simply had a much better time going to war There s nothing like a bit of stabby stabby or running away from a certain man of the watch dressed up like a woman to get...

    It was so much easier to blame it on Them It was bleakly depressing to think that They were Us If it was Them, then nothing was anyone s fault If it was us, what did that make Me After all, I m one of Us I must be I ve certainly never thought of myself as one of Them No one ever thinks of themselves as one of Them We re always one of Us It s Them that do the bad things Jingo is an anti war book in the guise of an absurdist farcical satire.I ve been working on getting though the Discworld books since I was sixteen, which is now exactly half my life ago Fitting that I am also now halfway through Terry Pratchett s most famous series of books, and just now really getting to the ones that start hitting harder Judging from this book, a Pratchett book will never be serious, but their silliness is and being undercut with a pathos that is riveting, an anger that drives the story That combo of laughter and rage is something I ve not found anywhere else but a Pratchett book And the the series goes on, the bolder he gets.The inciting incident of Jingo is a long lost island floating up from the middle of the Circle sea, right smack dab in the middle of Ankh Morpork and Klatch, and both nations claim ownership of it This leads, of c...

    English Espa ol m s abajo This is the Spanish edition of Jingo, I ll try to write a review soon I haven t had much time lately and I have an awful lot of pending reviews In short go read it, every single Terry Pratchett book is worth your money and time especially this one since it s one of the best books in the Discworld series Even though each novel can be read as a standalone book, It s highly recommended to read the previous books of the Guards series to get to know the background of some characters. Pod s encontrar esta y otras rese as en mi blog Voto a Br os Es el cuarto libro de la saga de los Guardias mi saga favorita dentro de la locura que es Mundodisco y en l se empieza a notar el progreso de la guardia de Ankh Morpork en comparaci n con el primer libro Ya no est compuesta nicamente por el capit n Vimes, Colon y Nobby, sino que ahora es una verdadera fuerza integrada por miembros de todas las variedades de seres que habitan la ciudad m s poblada de Mundodisco golems, trolls, enanos, hombres lobo, g rgolas, e incluso zombies Esta enorme variedad de personajes le sirve a Pratchett para hacer lo que se le da mejor y lo que m s disfruto de sus novelas criticar los aspectos m s rid culos de las diferentes culturas y religiones, creando estereotipos absurdos, pero a la vez sumamente entre...

    June 20, 2013 An ancient island appears halfway between Klatch and Anhk Porpork and a war is brewing Vimes and the Watch the Patrician, Leonardo, Nobbs and Colon and various other characters are all trying to avert or encourage the war for their various purposes I just love how Pratchett gets sharper in his satire, pointed, while retaining the slapstick In this case, it s an anti war book that manages to acknowledge why people want to have wars, even while c...

    I love this Discworld City Watch sub series Love the characters Commander Sam Vimes, Lord Vetinari, Captain Carrot, the troll Detritus, and the whole multi species gang of street patrollers About the title, from lspace Annotated Pratchett By jingo is an archaic, jocular oath, of obscure origin, used in Britain in the 18th and 19th centuries The word with derived forms such as jingoism and jingoistic became associated with aggressive, militaristic nationalism as a result of a popular song dating from the Turko Russian war of 1877 78, which began We don t want to have to fight, but by Jingo if we do We ve got the ships, we ve got the men, we ve got the money too This book s satire is focused on empire building and patriotism, with martial law in Ankh Morpork, and the patriotic Morporkians warring on Klatchian sands Parody comes complete with cultural stereotype boiled eyeballs, anyone , xenophobia, camels, deserts, and feuding desert tribes Where s the oil This cartoon by Tom Gauld sums it up Funny dialogue, especially between Colon and Nobbs Page 29 The Klatchians invented nothingThey came up with zero and that s even worse than nothing I loved the scene that unfolded when Lord Vetinari sent the stymied Sam Vimes a letter with only his title on it Sir Samuel Vimes, Knight Really enjoyed the hysterical dialogu...

    Ankh Morpork Goes to War5 April 2016 I have to admit that I m quite surprised that I have now read 21 of the Discworld books Okay, that actually isn t much of an effort where I m concerned considering that for some inexplicable reason I ended ploughing through a large majority of the Xanth books, and also pretty much read every Forgotten Realms book and a few Dragonlance books as soon as they hit the shelves Okay, after doing English Literature at university I must admit that my taste in books has changed quite a lot since then, however it is always good to read something that is not all that serious, and Discworld certainly fits the bill Mind you, it isn t as if the Discworld novels would fall into the category of mindless pulp since Pratchett does a really good job a satirising the modern world Okay, the Simpsons also did that, but I have to admit that the Simpsons really started to get to me because, well, it was way too close to home, and in such circumstances the satire probably doesn t work as well For instance there are a number of characters in the Simpsons such as Reverend Lovejoy that I simply could not stand namely because there are people that are quite like him However Futurama worked a lot better, namely because it was set three thousand yea...
