by Indi on April 9, 2008Pratchett is one of my favorite current literary authors. In this book he revisits gender issues first addressed in Equal Rights, but with less fantastic characters and more of a real-world feel. Monstrous Regiment combines fun, lighthearted comedy with slightly sinister undertones in the cultural commentary. What happens when a young woman enters the army in a chauvinistic, male dominated country? Read this book and Pratchett with tell you. With motley crew characters reminiscent of something between Goonies, MASH, and the Buttercreamer Gang, it tugs at the adolescent memory of several generations. Borogravian history centers around an imperialist background also present in European countries. However, this story appeals to a much broader base than is present in its own cultural setting.
Pratchett’s writing style flows well and is extremely quotable. Overall Monsterous Regiment is a relatively easy read and the plot can be predictable, but that won’t keep you from relating to the characters or enjoying the journey Pratchett takes you on!
