I started a few books, mostly for school, but didn't finish any of them. I still have trouble concentrating. It bothers me that I never finished Metafiction, so I decided not to write about books I didn't read all the way through, or about comic books.
Monstrous Regiment is not one of my favorite Pratchett books, but it wasn't bad.
It's about war, and feminism. It has a lot of entertaining cliches from war novels and movies, which I enjoyed, but nowhere near as many as he usually has.
Mostly it was about women and feminism. It wasn't as preachy as he sometimes gets.
It was actually rather bland. The first 70-100 pages were kind of unengaging, then it started being slightly more funny and have a bit more action, but nothing much really ever happens, and it's not particularly funny.
It had cameos from some old favorite Discworld characters, but I would have liked it better without them - they seemed pasted in.
So, entertaining enough, but nothing special, really.
