Hello:). My name's Boris. Russia. Not russian assasin with big gun from holy movies, though russian accent i have. Russian-accent, accent-russian. Not assasin:).
First book I read is Nation. Then I bought Men at arms in russian. And didn't read it. But one blue lonely night I started "coporal Carrot sat..." and couldn't stop reading. Very like ser Terry's books. Famous brittish humour. Though theory of big bang translated into russian sounds weird:). Hello again, I like to be meeted Discworld. Never thought our planet stands on four elephants(I thought tree) and Atuin:).

Greetings, all!

I've been reading the Discworld books for just a few years and have already managed to obtain the majority of them. Actually, I read The Amazing Maurice several years before, only I didn't know anything about the series then, so it was more like a standalone book for me. The more relatable humour the better with Pratchett's books, and some of them are certainly better than others - though they're all well put together. Some of my favourite characters are Granny Weatherwax, Nanny Ogg, Death and the various Igors.

I thought I'd join for obvious reasons meaning to chat about the books and get to know other fans of the series. Additionally, I'm 25 and from England.

So yes, hello! :)
