Description

Snuff It is a truth universally acknowledged that a policeman taking a holiday would barely have had time to open his suitcase before he finds his first corpse.

Commander Sam Vimes of the Ankh-Morpork City Watch is on holiday in the pleasant and innocent countryside, but not for him a mere body in the wardrobe. There are many, many bodies - and an ancient crime more terrible than murder.

He is out of his jurisdiction, out of his depth, out of bacon sandwiches, occasionally snookered and out of his mind. But never out of guile. Where there is a crime there must be a finding, there must be a chase and there must be a punishment.

They say that in the end all sins are forgiven.

But not quite all...

Winner of the Bollinger Everyman Wodehouse Prize for Comic Fiction

  • Another great Vimes adventure

    The Discworlds favourite policeman, Sir Sam Vines goes on holiday, and in true Sam Vines style manages to find a crime in the countryside, upset just about everybody who lives there and somehow changes the world one little bit for the better. Accompanied by his wife Lady Sybill, his son young Sam and the enigmatic gentlemens gentleman Wilinkins, who really 'has his moment' in this book, Vimes has a riotous adventure which had me chuckling quietly to myself, which isnt the best thing to do whilst waiting for your kevab in the local takeaway.
  • Not Pratchett's best work

    not one of the best by a long chalk. And did I blink and miss the omnipresent DEATH?

    Very good indeed, haven't enjoyed a new Pratchett this much in a long time! I just hope there are more to come. Whatever happened to Granny Weatherwax & Co.?
  • Great book, but not at this price!

    I agree with all the reviews stating how awesome this book is, but on the iBook store it's a good deal more expensive than the paperback. I suggest installing the free kindle app and getting that version at the paperback price of 5.99.

    Mr Prachett has a way with words that has so far in my opinion been unequalled. I enjoyed young Sam's poo collecting activities and felt pain for the goblins. The part about Sam's body parts reporting for duty and some having a note from mother doubled me up and keeps doing so every time I think of it. Or, the multiple personalities of Vimes, especially the blackboard monitor joining in the fight with Stratford,šŸ˜‚šŸ˜‚šŸ˜‚šŸ˜‚šŸ˜‚šŸ˜‚. The part of the equal opportunities Watch shows progress in action. Maybe one of the lesser gods will be the next recruit. The gentleman's gentleman is someone every one should have and the Patrician, long may his tyranny reign. All the characters are melded together to make Snuff a book worth owing. It is a page turner, and encourages recycling because I always find something I missed out on the first reading and each time it gets funnier. Can not wait to read the next book.

    don't get me wrong, it's still got a good disc world narrative imperative. But the way it's told isn't as sharp as we're used to, lots of 'he said/she said' to drive the plot, not so many incisive puns. It pains me to say this, but 'good' isn't the ' exceptionally excellent' I was hoping for.I feel a bit like Author Dent tasting a drink that's almost, but not quite like tea...
  • Satirical Crime and Punishment

    In some ways darker than many of his previous works but maintaining the humour at the same time. The characters do, in my view, remain true to their former incarnations but have simply progressed - a process during which we all change. Vimes is still Vimes but with a slightly changed outlook, reflecting the changes in his life and circumstances.
