Book Thirty One of Discworld
by Terry Pratchett
Fantasy | 476 Pages | Published by Doubleday in 2003
“Jade was rising over the grass. As she plodded nearer they saw she was dragging a man by one foot. When she was closer it was obvious the man was dead. Living people have more head.“
~ Page 137 | Monstrous Regiment by Terry Pratchett
| Synopsis |
Women belong in the kitchen – everyone knows that. Not in jobs, pubs or indeed trousers, and certainly not on the front line.
Nonetheless, Polly Perks has to become a boy in a hurry if she wants to find her missing brother in the army. Cutting off her hair and wearing the trousers is easy. Learning to fart and belch in public and walk like an ape takes more time.
There’s a war on. There’s always a war on, and Polly and her fellow raw recruits are suddenly in the thick of it.
All they have on their side is the most artful sergeant in the army and a vampire with a lust for coffee.
It’s time to make a stand.
