I do love Terry Pratchett's books but these series of books are very good. When they first came out I really thought it was going to be another bad series of books, but no. I can't even remember when I first picked up the 1st book. Well I'm not going to lie and say it was the best book I ever read but it made me want to read the 2nd book. I finally got the book out of a library and thought it was going to be alright but nothing specular. I thought wow this is actually very good and so I kept reading and reading and you guessed it reading. If you have never read any of these books before you have got to pick up one. Honestly,once you get into them you can't stop.
