If anyone is interested Raising Steam is 99p at the moment Raising Steam: (Discworld novel 40) (Discworld Novels) hope I've done the link right

Thank you :) I was going to resist this one, but it's got to be done :)

Oops. I didn't manage to avoid the 1-click.

Some negative reviews on this one but I'm still a fan!

I bought the hardback, aim to finish it tonight - I like to re-read the Discworld books, so it was my Christmas present to myself.

Not quite as multi-layered as some of Terry's earlier books, but I found it a really satisfying romp as always.
Worth 99p. of anyone's money!

Thank you so much for this. I am collecting each Discworld book as it come down in price. I even have a collection named Terry Pratchett for all his books on my Kindle e-reader dedicated to Fantasy books.

I am going to add this book to the Price Drop thread. Some readers just go for the freebie thread and the Price Drop threads which go on and on and on day after day.

As someone who has never read Terry Pratchett (haven't seen Star Wars either!) should I start with this one - or the very first one in the Discworld series - or even another Pratchett book altogether?

My favourite is Mort ...

I'm a Sam Vimes fan myself, Jill.
Night Watch: (Discworld Novel 29) (Discworld Novels) is my all-time favourite.

Terry says he sees himself as Mustrum Ridcully, but I think he'll discover he was Sam Vimes all along ...

Posted on 5 Jan 2014 17:57:22 GMT
I think you might be right there Stan ...

Mort is one of the books I've now read several times and it still makes me laugh. I enjoy all the others and I love the Wee Free Men but can still re-read Mort quite happily.

Any of the Witch ones....

Definitely don't start with the first book....

All the ones with Death are great too

Posted on 5 Jan 2014 20:24:14 GMT
I find it difficult to pick a favourite, but if someone was twisting my arm I think I would go with "Soul Music"......or perhaps......or perhaps.....

Posted on 5 Jan 2014 20:29:02 GMT
Mick says:
Soul music for me as well.
Or any with Death in them.
I would say that if you are going to read them for the first time start at the beginning with 'colour of magic' as some characters appear in later books.

That's 72 books ... hope I can get them all for 99p each though my teenage son has around 10 on his bookshelves and loads more on his Kindle. Thanks folks - I may be out of circulation for some time!
