Discworld is up to fun and games--or games for them and fun for the reader

Unseen Academicals (Discworld, #37) Unseen Academicals by Terry Pratchett

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Sir Terry Pratchett has taken on football (that's soccer to us Americans), as practiced as both a sport and as a religion (works for either definition of football).
As is the case in a number of his other Discworld novels, we are also confronted with a member of a distasteful minority--in this case an Orc. There is also a brief side trip into the world of fashion and fame, but that could happen anywhere.
My favorite part of the book is quite possibily the discussion of the definition of "oral sex". I alway learn soooo much while reading Pratchett's books.
