It's murder in Discworld! -- which ordinarily is no big deal. But what bothers Watch Commander Sir Sam Vimes is that the unusual deaths of three elderly Ankh-Morporkians do not bear the clean, efficient marks of the Assassins' Guild. An apparent lack of any motive is also quitetroubling. All Vimes has are some tracks of white clay and more of those bothersome "clue" things that only serve to muck up an investigation. The anger of a fearful populace is already being dangerously channeled toward the city's small community of golems -- the mindless, absurdlyindustrious creatures of baked clay who can occasionally be found toiling in the city's factories.

This might be my favorite Discworld book so far after Guards! Guards! and I think that might mean more given that I mostly love that first book for the character build up. This has so much--the Vetinari/Vimes stuff was. So much I had to lie down (when ur gay and you make ur bf solve the mystery of what is killing you even though you figured it out before him.......) and the whole golem plot around freedom was really interesting and powerful (though I would love to talk to a Jewish person about it, especially because there was this throwaway line about receipts that made me go "oh yikes.") And then like the Nobby plot was of COURSE so good; Pratchett has hit a kind of stride in this third book of new characters and keeping old characters and it's good to watch them interact.

Also all dwarfs are trans and I love to see it! ( )

Finished this today. I love reading all the characters and figuring out their voices. Pratchett's satirical humor always points the way to truth. ( )

In Feet of Clay Vimes has satisfactorily resolved his questions about career and home, Carrot has risen to the post of Captain himself, and most of his fellow guards seem to have settled in. Then the head of the Dwarf Bread Museum (one of Carrot's favorite places in the city) is found beaten to death by one of his own loaves and that's just the first in a series of mysterious murders. Even the Patrician finds himself poisoned ( )

Another attempt to install a king in Ankh-Morpork coincides with a disturbance among the golems of the city. ( )

I really enjoy the City Watch novels because every character is a hoot. Vimes is off the hooch, Nobby is about to be crowned king, and there are truly mysterious murders going on. And attempted murders. Of Vetinari, no less.

This is one of those super-solid Discworld novels. Pratchett has his thing going on, full tilt. Discrimination is explored on a much broader basis than ever before and just imagine... GOLEMS! So everywhere that NO ONE NOTICES them. Solution?

Revolution. Of a sort. If you're going to demand your freedom, make damn sure you ask for a receipt. :) ( )

Feet of Clay is another in the sub-series of books about the Ankh-Morpork City Watch. It involves golems, and murder, and an assassination plot, and the Watch's new forensic alchemist, and the rightful king, and the problems of being a vegetarian werewolf. It manages to be both a fine fantasy and a unique police procedural, with some cogent things to say about the human urge for kings. And it is almost continuously hilarious. It is difficult to say anything else about this book without sounding like a jacket blurb. Let us simply note that Pratchett performs to his usual standard.

Just because someone's a member of an ethnic minority doesn't mean they're not a nasty small-minded little jerk.
You never ever volunteered. Not even if a sergant stood there and said, "We need someone to drink alcohol, bottles of, and make love, passionate, to women, for the use of." There was always a snag. If a choir of angels asked for volunteers for Paradise to step forward, Nobby knew enough to take one smart pace to the rear.
It wasn't by eliminating the impossible that you got at the truth, however improbable; it was by the much harder process of eliminating the possibilities.
When you've made up your mind to shout out who you are to the world, it's a relief to know you can do it in a whisper.
'Atheism Is Also A Religious Position,' Dorfl rumbled.

'No, it's not!' said Constable Visit. 'Atheism is a denial of a god.'

'Therefore It Is A Religious Position,' said Dorfl. 'Indeed, A True Atheist Thinks Of The Gods Constantly, Albeit In Terms Of Denial. Therefore, Atheism Is A Form of Belief. If The Atheist Truly Did Not Believe, He Or She Would Not Bother To Deny.' (p. 241 of the Book Club Edition)
