Book: Terry Pratchett’s ‘Guards! Guards!’ – “A good bookshop is just a genteel Black Hole that knows how to read”

‘Guards! Guards!’ is one of the earlier Discworld books, eighth to be exact and is notable for introducing Carrot Ironfoundersson into the (Disc)world and specifically into the Ankh-Morpork City Watch.

It also introduced Sybil Ramkin, whose knowledge of swamp dragons comes in handy when a rather larger dragon descends upon the city.

It is a nice story in a mild fantasy theme, it wanders along with a decent supporting cast, it isn’t as polished as later stories about the Night Watch but is still enjoyable.
