Oh yeah. DEATH RULES! I wrote that on my schoolbag, but ppl seem to misunderstand that... I wonder why...Reaper Man, Mort and Night Watch are my favorites.

I've wanted to read these books, but I only have them in German, and it's hard going for me. They look funny.

Yeah, I read Mort in german, too, but I prefer the english version...(even though I'm german) Translations are always a bit different...

My favourite character is Death. He's really funny without even meaning to be. My favourite book is The Hogfather, it has me in stitches. :-D

i absolutely love wyrd sisters - i was in stitches all the way through. pratchett is a man who knows how to write spoof without being insulting, and that's a skill.

I adore the Tiffany Aching series, but the Amazing Maurice is easily the best. Pratchett is a true genius!

Terry Pratchett is God! And Death is awesome! :P
I've read the first foour or five of his books but my favorite still seems to be The Colour of Magic - and The Light Fantastic since they are sort of connected.

He is a true genius. His humour is so real and sharp that it almost appears subtle. :-)

I loved how the Gods starred in The Colour of Magic - has anyone read any other books featuring the Gods of the Disc?

I love Mort! And Maskerade always makes me laugh with the whole PotO spoofing. I haven't read either of those, Ea, but I did read Small Gods...I don't know if that really counts as the Gods of the Disc, since it's some random crazy tiny one and, like, only one.

I've read Mort too... so much of Death in it!!! I haven't read any of the books that are parodies or satires on other books... but I'll get to them.. usually it depends on what my library has available... :-)

I love Moist von Lipwig books and awesome Death series :) I think my favorite Pratchett's books is"Hogfather" because it has...Teatime! I adore Teatime with my whole gloomy heart ^^

Pratchett is fairly my newest obsession, because it last for one year only but I can say I dive deep into it ^^
