Interesting Times by Terry Pratchett
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
In order to fully appreciate Interesting Times, you have to at least read the other books in the Rincewind part of the Discworld series. Characters come back into play, and really, the only reason Rincewind is even involved in the events that take place is because of what happened in previous books. It's easy to jump around the Discworld series, but all sub-series should be read in order in order to really understand what is going on.
The best part of the book for me, was the fact that someone finally figured out Rincewind. The poor guy has been trying to get people to believe him for a while, and someone finally gets it. With his luck, it's doubtful anyone else will see things his way.
He is such a great character because he is someone, I at least, can relate to. In a world where there is crazy stuff happening all the time, and creatures running around that affect things in ways we will never see, Rincewind could be anybody. He's your average Joe stuck in this crazy world, but somehow, the fact that he is average, makes him amazing.
