Yes, many years ago I departed this forum. Sadly, I got bored recently and decided to return. So here I am. I hope to read a few more things this time around, and help with the critique side of things more than posting my own writing though because I am probably too busy to write that much presently.

TO make this topic relevant to this section of the forums, I pose a question to all of you. What is your favourite book by Terry Pratchett? Personally I find that question quite difficult but if I had to choose I would say Jingo was quite a marvelous read!

Of course you can! I practically did! Have you read his latest book though, Making Money? I thought that it was quite a clever read. The thing about Pratchett is that over the years he has become better at making more complicated plot lines and therefore his books have become more of a solid read. Dunno if you agree or not.

I found Thud was the first one I read that I truly loved. But any with your Namesake in are quality merely for that reason.

Too much choice though.

Welcome back.

It's great to get new members, especially if they're old members. Welcome home, many happy returns, merry Easter, you know the deal.

Thud! was the first Discworld book I read, so it's probably my favourite. However, every other Sam Vimes book comes in equal second. I just read Jingo and loved it. Especially all the Klatchian jokes Roll Eyes
Haven't read Making Money yet - I need to read Going Postal first. I actually bought it in an airport in Sweden a year ago, but, typically, I lost it before I got on the plane. After I've acquired and read it, Making Money will probably be out in paperback, and will be my next purchase. Goody.
The Fnac here has basically a whole shelf full of Discworld. It's really, really tempting just to stretch my arms out, grab the whole row off the shelf, and plonk it on the counter Wink It'd save me a few trips into the city, for sure...
