Just wondering if there are any other Terry Practchett fans out there?

Personally i think Night Watch was pretty darn cool!

Reaper Man holds a special place in my heart but Night Watch, Going Postal and Amazing Maurice were superb and deserve a special mention.  Great series. -leeman

I love Pratchett, but I have no idea what the English title of my favorite book is :D
Anyway I love most of them esp. the Audio Books read by Tony Robinson, just great :D

As much as I like the Discworld novels, I would have to go with Good Omens.  Hasn't been topped yet, IMHO.

im a huge discworld fan, as well as Terry's other books,  i re-read the entire series at least once a year, difficult to pick a favourite but if i had to choose it would be............... i cant pick just one, i been sitting for 10 mins and still cant decide on one, some of my faves would be Reaper Man, Mort, Last Continent, Night Watch and The Last Hero graphic novel.

I love Terry Pratchett. Currently I am reading Theif Of Time, which is a good one. Some of my favorites were Mort (the first one I read), The Last Continent, Interesting Times, Moving Pictures, and Soul Music, which was slow at first but the end was really good. I love all of the books involving Death, he (it?) is my favorite character. I can't wait to get Reaper Man, but I just can't find it anywhere...


EDIT on August 1: I just finished read Night Watch... it is now definitely my new favorite, absolutely awesome. That book would make a great movie, one I would definitely see.

Hey! 5 year necrobump to say my parents got I Shall Wear Midnight while they were in Ireland long before it's available here in the US.

I will read it as soon as I finish this Lovecraft story.

Night Watch for establishing Ankh-Morpork's history and being a great book in its own right, Good Omens for the sheer inspired wit.
