First read in secondary school, and re-read during JC. Very few authors can mix in the fun and humor as well as interesting little observations on modern society, with some very good puns. Probably 1 of the few people I'd allow to use puns.

“Ринсуинд е стахливец. Много е доволен от това. Предпочита хората да си приказват какъв страхливец е Ринсуинд, отколкото да признават, че е бил невероятно храбър, чак до мига, когато нещо го е прехапало на две половинки. През продължителната си кариера е присъствал на сътворението на Вселената, пътувал е из ада, сериозно е досадил на Смърт, падал е от Диска, победил е най- могъщия магьосник на света с помощта на половин тухла, пъхната в чорап и се е справил с мнжество чудовища, някои от които в човешки облик. Във всяка от изброените случки отначало е имал намерението да направи нещо съвсем различно от крайния резултат. Из 'Албумът на Тери Пратчет” 4 likes
