  3. What is Pratchett saying about gender roles?
  4. What is Pratchett saying about warfare?
  5. How about religion?
  6. Who is your favorite character and why?
  7. Monstrous Regiment is an installment in a series and includes characters from other Discworld novels (particularly Sam Vines from Guards! Guards! and Night Watch and William de Worde from The Truth). How well does this book hold up on its own?
  8. Does the twist in this book (that everyone in the regiment is a woman in disguise) seem plausible? Could this be made into a movie?
