Worst Addition

Postby author3 » Sun May 29, 2011 7:51 pm

This doesn't mean least favorite just what book do you think didn't need to go into the series?
For me it would probably be Unseen Academicals
but I think UA was a great book :) :)

UA to me too (granted, by now i calmed and decided for myself UA is not a story from the same trouserleg of time as for example 'last continent' or 'Feet of Clay')
It just reads like a bad fanfiction to me, even upon a second and third attempt to read it.
The third attempt even made me wanna go and write an AU of UA...

Pyramids. Not just because of my opinion of it, but because the events of it have so little impact on the Discworld itself. We don't hear of any of these people again, except one or two Ephebean philosophers. And while Equal Rites was an excellent book, I felt that Wyrd Sisters was a better introduction to Granny Weatherwax and Lancre, and Esk, even given her return in I Shall Wear Midnight...seems to have become irrelevant to the canon in the same way Teppic did. So, Pyramids and Equal Rites, for varying reasons. :?

I agree with UA & Pyramids. Didn't like either very much. I do own them & have read them though.
Equal Rites was the first book I read & that got me hooked on TP, so certainly not that one or Wintersmith. I wonder if it's a girl thing. :D
Best wishes,

Yeah Wintersmith didn't feel like a Discworld book either
I forgot about that

I love UA but for me my least fav book was Monstrous Regiment.

Monstrous Regiment is my least read book. Therefore, not my favourite.

It doesn't have a Discy enough feel to it.

I would have to say my least favorites are Monsterous Regiment and UA. Although I haven't yet given either a second reading. Maybe that would change my mind.

???????? I thought it was one, two, many, lots.

Oh and Tony? Where are you quoting your sigs from? No: 4? I have been reading them but give us a list of the first three.

I was giving an example of worst addition. :lol:

As to my signatures - here's the first three. :wink:

1. Once you have their money, never give it back

2. You can't cheat an honest customer, but it never hurts to try

3. Never spend more for an acquisition than you have to

I'm sure many people here will know what they are. :P
