Terry Pratchett - Monstrous Regiment PDF Download eBook (Discworld #31)First published in 2003, Monstrous Regiment is the 31st novel in Discworld fantasy series by Terry Pratchett. The title is a reference to John Knox tract in the 16th century. There are still many intriguing references made by Pratchett in this book, including to various big wars such as Napoleonic Wars and World War I and to the subject of feminism and Joan of Arc. To make the story even more exciting, he also brings out interesting characters: a vampire, a troll, a werewolf, a band of misfits, and a young gal who crossdresses to join the army—something that actually happened in the past when army and wars are “men only”.
*Preview of Terry Pratchett's Monstrous Regiment*
Pratchett flexes his satirical muscles again, with the follies of war his theme. Polly Oliver has disguised herself as a boy to join the army of Borogravia, which is always at war and bursting with patriotism, though the Borogravians are often less than clear on why they are fighting. But then, as followers of a god who believes that cats, babies, and cheese are abominations, they are used to contradictions; they mostly pray to their duchess, who may be dead. ... Meanwhile, Polly's regiment, the Ins-and-Outs, has become quite high-profile, what with having, it is said, a vampire, a werewolf, and an Igor in its ranks, and with capturing, quite unexpectedly, the Zlobenian prince and his soldiers, an event publicized by Ankh-Morpork newspaperman William de Worde. ... Thoroughly funny and surprisingly insightful. Regina Schroeder (American Library Association)
