The Bookish Owl – Night Watch by Terry Pratchett

Night Watch Terry Pratchett Owl

Phew, been a few weeks since I did one of these, huh? It’s been a little too busy for me to get some proper reading done. But now things are calming down, so it’s time for me to get back to tackling my to-read pile!

Right now I’m reading Night Watch by Terry Pratchett, and despite it being a huge-ass mofo compared to the previous Discworld books, I doubt it will take long for me to finish it. I think I have stated this in previous installments of my Bookish Owl posts, but I love Pratchett’s City Watch books! I’m almost looking forward to finishing the whole Discworld-series (almost), just so I can go back and reread the ones with the Watch.

…and after that, the ones with Death. And then the ones with the Witches. And then most of the Rincewind ones.

Let’s face it. I’ll probably never be done with Discworld.

And, of course, here’s your owl photo!
I keep thinking Artemis will run out of weird poses for these, but he keeps surprising me. I would try to get him to perch on the book, if it didn’t mean I would have to switch to portrait framing for the photo (and if it didn’t mean he would shit down the back of my books…)

  1. […] Night Watch (Terry Pratchett) This was probably one of my favorite Discworld books. It was a lot darker than Pratchett’s other books and there were a few scenes that had me turning a little pale. I’m used to dark fantasy, but seeing it in Discworld took some getting used to. But it still had plenty of funny moments and Sam Vimes is such a relatable character to me that the contrast between his dry humor and his darker side ended up working perfectly. Also, I love how, even when you throw the main character 30 years into the past, Vetinari will always be lurking and plotting somewhere in the shadows. […]

  2. The pose of this owl is killing me XD Also, “Night Watch” is one of Pratchett’s most mature books… Let us know do you think the same 😉

    1. I’m about 150 pages in and I’m loving it so far.
      True, it’s shaping up to be a lot more serious than previous books, but as long as it’s done with Vimes’ inner (and sometimes outer) commentary, it’s still manages to be funny!

  3. That’s some quality owl posing

    1. It’s lucky that he provides some variation by himself, because he absolutely refuses to follow any cue given by me.
