It is rare and splendid event when an author is elevated from the underground into the international literary establishment. In the case of England's best-known and best-loved modern satirist, that event has been long overdue.

Terry Pratchett's profoundly irreverent Discworld novels satirize and celebrate every aspect of life, modern and ancient, sacred and profane. Consistent number-one bestsellers in England, they have garnered him a secure position in the pantheon of humor along with Mark Twain, Douglas Adams, Matt Groening, and Jonathan Swift.

Even so distinguished an author as A. S. Byatt has sung his praises, calling Pratchett's intricate and delightful fictional Discworld "more complicated and satisfying than Oz."

His latest satiric triumph, Carpe Jugulum, involves an exclusive royal snafu that leads to comic mayhem. In a fit of enlightenment democracy and ebullient goodwill, King Verence invites Uberwald's undead, the Magpyrs, into Lancre to celebrate the birth of his daughter. But once ensconced within the castle, these wine-drinking, garlic-eating, sun-loving modern vampires have no intention of leaving. Ever.

Only an uneasy alliance between a nervous young priest and the argumentative local witches can save the country from being taken over by people with a cultivated bloodlust and bad taste in silk waistcoats. For them, there's only one way to fight.

I can’t believe I just finished the last Discworld book in the Witches series. Dammit, why isn’t there more?!? Wait, I think there’s still a couple in the Tiffany Aching stories I haven’t read yet, maybe those count?

It didn’t take me long to progress through the first three of the five stages of grief. I may never reach Acceptance, though, because I am really going to miss Granny and Nanny Ogg and Magrat and Agnes/Perdita. Mostly Granny, though. I sure hope she makes some cameo appearances in the other books I haven’t read yet.

Carpe Jugulum was fun. So much fun that I mostly blew off watching the ALCS and stayed up waaaay past my bedtime during the work week to finish.

Charming, heart-warming, thought provoking and the best kind of slow burner (Which is one that, while it still burns good, the fire really gets roaring later)

While it had a slow start, the book definitely picked up in classic Terry Pratchett fashion and humor later on. Terry Pratchett always has a marvelous way of tying things together and having things come to a beautiful full circle in the end! There were a couple of moments in the book I felt were a bit out of place (the Nac Mac Feegle, falconer and the Phoenix, while having their passing roles, didn't seem too crucial)
It took me a little longer than usual to get into this one, which is not the normal with me when it comes to Discworld. At first, it didn't entirely come off as a Discworld book. It took nearly the whole first half to build up and set the stage- but maybe it was because as far as the sub-series goes, I think the Witches are my least favorite. (Death is my favorite. The City Watch are also good)

As a vampire lover that typically frowns on all things vampire slaying- this book had a twist and a different kind of closure that I didn't seem to mind.
Definitely one of my favorite vampire books as well as Discworld novels!

PS:// While it's expected and not surprising, it's always nice to see readers still enjoying these books today :) ( )

Took me a little bit to get into this one, but once I did, I enjoyed it just as much as the rest. Not sure what the over arching theme might be on this one though, maybe 'Know yourself'? Don't fall for snake oil salesmen? I did wonder how the witches were going to pull this one off, but it worked. ( )

I have to admit, it took me longer than usual to get into this book. It took nearly the whole first half—which is really unusual for me with a Discworld book. I think it’s because I was expecting this to be the witches as I knew them, and yet for the majority of the first half of the book, Granny Weatherwax was off doing something on her own. And so the character dynamic wasn’t quite the same, and it took me half of the book to adjust. Once I did, though? I was all in.

The whole second half of Carpe Jugulum was as enjoyable as I had expected from a Discworld book. I enjoyed the interplay between Granny and Mightily Oats and found it amusing to see how Granny Weatherwax and Nanny Ogg both had different takes on Oats. It was also amusing to see the Nac Mac Feegles in this book, even if I could understand them even less than usual. ( )

Through the shredded black clouds a fire moved like a dying star, falling back to earth - the earth, that is, of the Discworld - but unlike any star had ever done before, it sometimes managed to steer its fall, sometimes rising, sometimes twisting, but inevitably heading down.
