Review: Interesting Times
Sir Terry himself once said in an interview that it’s hard to make Rincewind “more than two-dimensional” and that he’s “shallow all the way to the bottom”. I agree. He’s funny, but flat and gets boring quickly; While I’m not a huge fan of Rincewind, I quite enjoyed Cohen and the Silver Horde as characters. All in all, the book is funny and interesting, and I liked how Pratchett humorously explores totalitarian systems and the extreme naivety that often surrounds the attempts to overthrow them.
