Terry Pratchett: Thud

Thud! (Discworld, #34; City Watch #7)Thud! by Terry Pratchett
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Topics: Racism, Intolerance, perception, heritage, history. Dealt with admirably, because every character struggles with (or with overcoming of) their preconception and perception of the Other, may they be dwarf, human, troll, woman or vampire (okay, maybe Young Sam doesn’t) and that is wonderful. You have no righteous character, even Vimes who is ‘as straight as an arrow’ as to overcome his prejudices and I love that. That’s smart writing. And it is honest writing. And on top the story is also funny in places, as is to be expected. Much love!
