Our May novel is The Color of Magic. And boy that hurt my British self to spell that without the U!

BellaGBear We can always ignore the horrible American spelling!

Lovely series, but I think the colour of magic is story wise not the best of Discworl. Altough Rincewind, the tourist and luggage are amazing characters the series could not have done without

Rachel Dunn | 4 comments I read this a while back and loved it. I had tried to read Terry Pratchett several times before, but could never get into them (I absolutely adored Good Omens though). When he died and everyone was talking about him I figured I would give the discworld another try... Now I am looking everywhere trying to find the rest of his books.

If you find it easier to listen to books I would recommend this youtuber:
He reads the books aloud, and some of his reactions are almost funnier than the puns themselves. (he also does a couple more terry pratchett, and some tamora pierce books)

Chinook | 8 comments I read this about five years ago and then the second one more recently. I loved the riffing on Anne McCaffrey and I sensed that there were probably more jokes about other fantasy books that just went over my head. I'm slowly going to work my way through all of Discworld.

Jim (jkmfilms) | 109 comments My first Discworld book was Thud! which I completely accidentally read out of order about a year ago. I loved it! So I thought I'd start at the beginning. I picked this up a while back, and while I thought it was ok, I didn't love it. My library doesn't have the second book, so I dropped off the series. I need to pick it back up, because I know it gets better, and I'm really curious to get into this world.
