Night Watch turns out to be an unexpectedly moving novel about sacrifice and responsibility, its final scenes leaving one near tears, as these sometime Keystone Kops, through simple humanity, metamorphose into the Seven Samurai. Terry Pratchett may still be pegged a comic novelist, but as Night Watch shows, he’s a lot more. In his range of invented characters, his adroit storytelling and his clear-eyed acceptance of humankind’s foibles, he reminds me of no one in English literature so much as Geoffrey Chaucer. No kidding. [Washington Post]

En gelijk hebben ze. Pratchett is een van die auteurs waarvan ik tegenwoordig elk nieuw boek koop van zodra het uit is, in harcover. Aanrader! Lezen!
