it was amazing

Awhile back, I had teased around with the Discworld. I read The Colour of Magic and The Light Fantastic, and while I enjoyed the stories, I wasn't exactly entranced by them like I knew a lot of my friends were. This was surprising to me, and I was somewhat disappointed- what was I missing from Pratchett that others saw?

Then, on a friend's recommendation, I read this.

Whatever spark I missed in the earlier stories, I found it here; the characters seem to have a whole different set of life to them, and the world of the Disc just comes alive in such a different way. Pratchett's observational humor shines, and the jokes just flow naturally.

Definitely the push I needed to five headfirst into the Discworld; I have an odd feeling I won't regret it.
