julesG Well, if the UU has to send a wizard abroad, it has to be Rincewind. Who else is going to bungle around and accidentally save the day? I loved the Luggage finding a mate and making small luggage. And I found the Silver Horde amusing and annoying at the same time. 5d

BookWrym Seeing recurring themes in the Rincewind novels the Greek like gods, fate and of course Rincewind just being a force of chaos. I really liked the Horde and the fact that wheelchair bound or deaf nothing gets in the way of a good fight. Also liked their observations about how uncivilised civilisation is what with poisoning and torture and saying things you don‘t mean. 5d
BarbaraJean @julesG I loved the Luggage offspring as well! I enjoyed the fact that there was more going on here beyond just the jokey bits. @BookWyrm Yes, I enjoyed the observations on “civilization“ as well! There was also some good commentary on the use of power, and the impact of a “revolution“... especially when the people you're fighting for haven't even been consulted. 5d
willaful @BarbaraJean Yes, I felt this had more social commentary than the previous Rincewind books and subsequently was more interesting.

I'd like to know how everything came out. How did Cohen wind up at the Troll Bridge? Was the luggage forever free and just a family bag? 😁

julesG @willaful Can't remember about Cohen, but I'm sure we'll find out about the luggage in Last Continent. 4d
kwmg40 I enjoyed the social commentary and satirical elements of Interesting Times, but the subplot with The Luggage was the best! The scenes with the Silver Horde were fun too. I also liked Troll Bridge, especially the ending. 3d
