Hmm, that is the new one?

I loved them deeply once, but then again, I was like 12. Now they are good subway or gym reading... don't have to pay too much attention or really keep track of anything. Hm.

I enjoyed Monstrous Regiment, but the latest one, Going Postal, is much better.

Well, it was cool how the women being in the military or in positions of power didn't fix anything, and then people being closeted, & the media then making a big token-myth out of them... It was fluffy in his usual way but nicely didn't try to fix or erase gender/power problems at the end of the book (as so many stories do.)

I was just giving myself a good laugh imagining the same kind of story, about women disguised as men in order to go into the military and their discovery of the cameraderie of soldiers and being all empowered by it -- but rewritten so that it's men disguising themselves as suburban moms to enjoy the cameraderie of the playground and PTA. It's a tough job, here in the trenches, and not everyone survives. And yet they keep signing up for duty, full of fresh-faced ideals...

I have read every single one starting years ago.The thing is that at the beginning he seemed so totally original .. and really funny.He definitely had a low period over the last few years with 'Monstrous Regiment' being so bad that I thought it was all over. But then 'Going Postal' was right back to his old form. I could send you a list of the books in order of 'goodness' if you like. I enjoyed the ones about the witches and the ones about the 'Watch' the most and the vampires the least. But that is me.
