Jingo by Terry Pratchett
When the sunken island of Leshp rises again, the bustling metropolis of Ankh-Morpork and the Arabic Expy Klatch both stake claims to it — diplomacy leading to riots, assassinations, and eventually war. 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.
As is common with this subseries, there was a little bit of a mystery involved, and that helped keep the story more interesting. Deep in the Chalk, something is stirring. Politics is a funny thing, and all the more so on the Discworld.

They’re clever, extremely clever, and extremely entertaining, but sometimes they lack something in the core to centre around. However they simply can’t let Klatch have a chunk of rock because, well, they will lose face. I just love how Pratchett gets sharper in his satire, more pointed, while retaining the slapstick.
Also, Pratchett makes too many jokes about fat people. Samuel Vimes has become another of my favourite Discworld characters. In the end, this shouldn’t be a difficult endeavor, after all Klatch is very much indebted to the Ankh Morpork. Colon take on a secret mission for the Patrician.
Jingo by Terry Pratchett book review
Books by Terry Pratchett. But this isn’t a war book like normal war books. I think this may have been a little while before the phrase “jumping the shark” became common parlance, at least in Coventry, but that was exactly what we thought had happened.
Frostrip of the Guild of Accountants. I jinbo think I’ve ever laughed so much because of a book as I have with this one. Because TP’s books don’t stay with me.
