HOLY SHIT you guys

This was amazing. Pratchett wrote an action thriller that critiques the tropes of action thrillers RIGHT THERE IN THE TEXT. Discworld’s own John McClane says RIGHT THERE that the kind of people who follow killing with quippy one-liners are just murderers.

HOLY SHIT

I think this book finally locked in my dream cast for some of the Watch – Bruce Willis for Sam Vimes, young!Eric Idle for Nobby, and young!John Cleese for Colon. Not sure about Carrot yet… leaning towards Chris Evans, but the Snowpiercer Chris Evan just as much as Captain America.
