I very, very nearly agree wholeheartedly--if I didn't love Going Postal or Jingo almost as much as Night Watch! But yes, no TP book comes as close to being a clear best as Night Watch for me. In a way it feels like the peak of the Watch novels; Thud was where his writing started to get heavier and more overpacked. Still great books, still love them, but with that one increasing flaw.

Strange to read my original critical comments, because I remember Guards! Guards! and Night Watch as among the best Discworld novels!
