But which can't be taxing in any way. Preferably light.
This is that kind of book.
I normally enjoy Terry Pratchett without being terribly invested in his books. I've read a handful, enjoy them when I pick them up, rarely search out more.
This one, though. I can't tell if it's actually even better than that, or if that's the exhaustion talking. But I just enjoyed the heck out of Guards! Guards!, from the dissertations on secret societies, the ailments of swamp dragons, the peevishness of the continually overlooked, or the million-to-one-chance-that-might-just-work.
Anyway, a dragon appears, and flames oppressive vegetable shops, and the remnants of the Watch are joined by a new overachieving young human who thought he was a tall dwarf until recently, and find out that maybe it's worth upholding the Law after all. Although perhaps not healthy.
