Guards! Guards! - Terry Pratchett

The eight discworld book is a definite improvement on the last couple, and certainly funnier. Much as with everything else in the discworld, the cops are useless, and really don't want to have to work too hard or do much at all. Turning up, having lunch, or supper, or whatever, and then going home is fine with them.

Cults and dragons get in the way, though, and they have to do some policing while Pratchett happily spoofs the cop genre.

4 out of 5
