Terry Pratchett - Carpe Jugulum PDF Download eBook (Discworld #23)Taking references to the famous “seize the day” saying and vampirism for the title, Terry Pratchett continued his epic and humorous Discworld fantasy series to the twenty-third novel with Carpe Jugulum—it is Latatian for "seize the throat." Originally published in 1998, the book parodies many elements of traditional vampire and suite them to his often-bizarre Discworld existence.
... Carpe Jugulum is loaded with marvelous characters (not least the witches themselves, about whom we learn a deal more), comic touches and scenes of genius, and even some of the renowned down-to-earth Pratchett wisdom (about the inner ethical conflicts we all face and the wrongness of treating people as things). Pratchett's vampires are elegant Bela Lugosi types, and they come up against an unlikely but engaging alliance of witches; blue-skinned pixies like Rob Roy Smurfs; a doubting priest with a boil on his face; and a magical house-size Phoenix in a seamless, completely absorbing, and feel-good-about-the-universe mixture. Highly recommended.
