I just finished reading Terry Pratchett’s new book Dodger on my Kindle. It was a great read and like all of Pratchett’s books full of pithy humor and word play. Highly recommended! He paints a very good picture of Victorian London and includes encounters with Dickens, Disraeli and others.
“The man gave Dodger a cursory glance that had quite a lot of curse in it.”
“She had more teeth than brains, and she didn’t have many teeth.”
“all these pictures on the walls of elderly men with white hair and expressions of acute constipation.”
“No Englishman would ever have said ‘I think therefore I am.’ Although he might possibly have said, ‘I think therefore I am, I think.’”
