'Neighbours... hah. People'd live for ages side by side, nodding at one another amicably on their way to work, and then some trivial thing would happen and someone would be having a garden fork removed from their ear.'

When the neighbours in question are the proud empires of Klatch and Ankh-Morpork, those are going to be some pretty large garden tools indeed. Of course, no-one would dream of starting a war without a perfectly good reason...such as a 'strategic' piece of old rock in the middle of nowhere.

It is after all every citizen's right to bear arms to defend their own. Even if it isn't technically their own. And even if they don't have much in the way of actual weaponry. As two armies march, Commander Vimes of Ankh-Morpork City Watch faces unpleasant foes who are out to get him... and that's just the people on his side. The enemy might be even worse.

The Discworld novels can be read in any order but Jingo is the fourth book in the City Watch series.

Certainly not my favourite discworld novel. Vimes and Vetinari are both awesome characters, but when they are removed from the city of Ankh-Morpork, it's like we're missing half of their characters. They need the city to really shine. Though it was fun to get a better look at Vetinari as a more active player. Still it's a good book and introduces a few memorable characters and concepts. And as usual, the narrators do an amazing job bringing Pratchett's worls to life!
