Monstrous Regiment (Discworld Novels) by Terry Pratchett
Monstrous Regiment (Discworld Novels)

archivecats, January 31, 2010

I had stopped reading Terry Pratchett sometime in college because I thought his books were getting too preachy and weren't as funny anymore. A few years later, I picked up an advance reader's copy of this book - and I loved it. I realized that I now appreciated the fact that Pratchett wasn't just writing silliness for the sake of silliness, that his stories still had lots of humor, but also contained larger ideas about how the world should be. I used this book to turn my father and a friend into Pratchett fans, too. It's very difficult to select a "best book of the decade" - different books are great for different reasons. I am voting for this book because, in addition to being an enjoyable and thought-provoking read, it affected many of my later reading choices, and it helped to connect me with other readers.
