This was the first Discworld book that I read. I really liked it. Pratchett has an insane bendy mind and I want to get in it and roam around for a while. Nothing in these stories is ever what you'd assume it to be, especially not here.

This guy rocks in performance, and his poetry works just as well, if not better on the page (poohs to all you publishers who think performance poetry belongs only on the mic). He's very clever. Title poem is gorgeous.

Ahhh...the epic. I first read this when I was about 16 and I loved it. People laugh at me about this, but I don't care - I just did. I dig the main character, who is flawed, doesn't fit in with her designated niche in society, screws up most of her p ...more

My mother gave me this book to read. Weil manages to approach the subject with extreme amounts of common sense, draws on info from everywhere, the streets to the amazon, says what drug-takers have known forever (or at least the smart ones) where it's ...more
