DISCWORLD SNUFF PDF

Hes frail compared to the man I saw at Kane Hall back in the s, but still sharp. He took questions, and one, predictably enough, was which of his characters he was most like. In my heart I know its Rincewind, he said, grinning. But then he continued in a more thoughtful vein: Twice Ive kneeled in front of the Queen and shes swished a very large sword over my head and fortunately, shes missed every time. When I stood up a knight, a ferrier, a blacksmith, a soldier in the Crimean War, all my ancestors stood up with me. A peer of the realm.

After a short time of enjoying his holiday, he discovers that the rural community has a dark past with the resident goblins, humanoid lifeforms that live in caves nearby. Vimes finds out that the son of Lord Rust has been enslaving goblins to force them to work on his tobacco plantations in Howondaland, allowing him to manufacture cigars cheaply that are then smuggled to Ankh-Morpork.

After teaming up with the local constable, a young man called Upshot, Vimes manages to arrest those responsible for the crime. As Vimes arrives in the countryside, despite the silence and tranquillity, he senses crime. The next day he participates in a hand-to-hand fight with the hot-headed local blacksmith, Jethro.

That night, Vimes and Willikins go up to Hangman Hill to find Jethro, but instead, they find the severed finger of a goblin girl and lots of blood.

The next morning, the young local constable, Feeney Upshot, arrives at Ramkin Hall to arrest Vimes for the murder of the blacksmith, who has gone missing. Vimes is considered the most likely suspect because he was in a fight with the blacksmith the night before, and he was overheard making plans to meet Jethro on Hangman Hill.

However, Vimes refuses arrest, instead taking on the task of mentoring Upshot and teaching him to be a better copper, and together they start an investigation on the case. They enter into pitch-black darkness, and Vimes realises he can see perfectly in the darkness, a skill rewarded to him by the Summoning Dark a demon that briefly possessed him in the novel Thud!

Vimes ventures further in the cave in search of the blacksmith, but he instead finds Miss Beedle, who spends her spare time here in the cave teaching goblin girls how to read and communicate with humans. They capture Flutter, but he is unwilling to say much.

Vimes then notices a cellar in his house and enters it; surrounded by darkness he is able to communicate to the Summoning Dark. From the Summoning Dark, who represents all darkness, he is able to get a witness account of what happened on Hangman Hill the other night and relays this to Flutter, who then tells Vimes that he protested against the killing of the goblin-girl, and whose murderer was a Mr Stratford, a man working for Rust.

In a series of scenes taking place back at the Ankh-Morpork City Watch as well as in the country-side, Vimes discovers that goblins are being used in slave labour on tobacco plantations in Howondaland. He also finds out that three years ago, large numbers of goblins were taken from their caves to work at the plantation.

In this incident, many goblins were killed, abused and starved to death. Wee Mad Arthur of the Ankh-Morpork City Watch flies to Howondaland to investigate and finds the plantation, where all the goblin workers are dying or already dead. He notices many huts lining the plantation and in them he finds more corpses and dying goblins. Vimes and Upshot hear that more goblins have been taken and are now currently on their way to the plantation by river on the paddleboat The Wonderful Fanny.

Vimes and Upshot secretly board the boat just as a thunder storm arrives, making the night pitch-black and the river laden with debris and deadly. A battle ensues between Vimes and Stratford and as Stratford is knocked out and tied up.

The captain of the boat loses track of the riverbends and panics. Vimes, with the help of Stinky, frees the goblins who are trapped in the cargo holds. Vimes is knocked unconscious in the storm and wakes to find himself and the boat in Quirm, everyone has survived the night.

Vimes quickly discovers that the goblins, along with Stratford, have already boarded the next boat to Howondaland. Vimes boards the boat and arrests the Captain and frees all the goblins once and for all, but Stratford is not on board. Vimes returns to his family in Ramkin Hall and together they travel to Quirm on the pleasure boat Roberta E.

On the way the prison coach crashes, Stratford escapes and kills a guard. He is then met on the road by Willikins—who had followed the coach—and killed.

The aim of the concert is to showcase the musical talent of one of the goblin girls taught by Miss Beedle. The dignitaries are so moved by the display they agree to enact laws which will grant goblins the same rights as other sapient creatures and protection under the law. Reception[ edit ] In a review for The Guardian , A. Byatt noted that the book connected two different meanings of Snuff "an old-fashioned stimulant to be kept in elegant boxes and snorted gracefully in society" and "arbitrary and unpleasant deaths ".

Byatt also noted the "great deal of interest in bodily fluids, excretions and excrement" in the book. At the end of the review, Byatt called Pratchett a master storyteller, and said he was endlessly inventive.

Composition[ edit ] Very few of the Discworld novels have chapter divisions. Instead they feature interweaving storylines. Pratchett was quoted as saying that he "just never got into the habit of chapters", [4] later adding that "I have to shove them in the putative YA books because my editor screams until I do". Additionally, Going Postal and Making Money both have chapters, a prologue, an epilogue, and brief teasers of what is to come in each chapter, in the style of A.
