I preferred Thief of Time to The Truth.  Not that any Discworld book is
anything other than very entertaining!

And yes, Ship of Destiny was great.  It is so nice to read a trilogy that
just keeps getting better!  Seems to happen rarely.

Oh yes!  Brust keeps doing completely unexpected and generally wonderful
things with each book!

The discussion would have been after I read it, which would have been
sometime in early August.

And to add my 2c over Ash - I loved it too.  I read huge chunks of it at
once and it kept surprising me.  Every time I thought I'd worked out where
it was going it took a turn and ended up somewhere completely different.
