Review: Carpe Jugulum by Terry Pratchett

For some reason I wasn’t expecting to enjoy this one as much – probably because it was one of the few Discworld books I *hadn’t* heard people rave about, and because the market is rather glutted with vampires nowadays…

I should have known better.

On top of the standard Pratchett greatness (satire + puns + thrilling conflict and epic climax), this book takes an honest and respectful look at the interplay of faith, religion, and reality. It finds a balancing point with these themes that most stories don’t, and that was unexpectedly refreshing.
