Why this book?
There’s hardly any fantasy world stranger than Discworld – a flat, round world resting on the backs of four elephants, who are in turn standing on the back of the great World Turtle, A’Tuin, who is swimming through space. There are plenty of Discworld novels, but of the entire set, my favorite is definitely Night Watch, which also happens to be the first Discworld novel I read. Night Watch features Sam Vimes at his best: a guy who is smart, sneaky, competent, and exactly the cop you want to travel through time to take charge if your city happens to erupt into chaos.
