Monstrous Regiment has just been overtaken by Dark Side of the Sun. I thought the begining garbled and it only panned out once something concrete started to happen.

Am well impressed with Strata though.

I didn't like unseen academicals much it didn't seem very discworldy if you get what I mean. It was as if someone else had written it and tried to do a dicworld novel. I have read it twice more since then and listened to the audio book version and it's kinda growing on me a bit with time.

I have to say after reading through the thread that I really like Rincewind specially in the last continent. And although nightwatch isn't as funny as some of the others I still love it for story of him being his own teacher and found kinda emotional I guess.

I think it will be a long while before I want to read Dark Side of the Sun again, it wasn't terrible, just meandering. I finished it 2 weeks ago. I'm just over halfway through Strata at the moment, it's really good. (first and only F word in a Pratchett book?)

Greetings, all. I'm new to Discworld and have read only a handful, but I just had to say:

Pyramids. Oh, Pyramids. The charm left it, for me, once the action moved to Djelibeibi (sp?). I just didn't find it engaging on either a humourous or a dramatic level.

...But I thought Night Watch was hysterical (if quite intense, which I loved) and I'm itching for the next Moist story (MM was my first ever Discworld story) so there we go. :shock:

Welcome to the site, Archaeologist! :D

The board is being a bit temperamental today, which is probably why it's saying that you haven't made any posts when you clearly have.

I have to say that I was always disappointed when Pyramids moved from A-M to Djelibeybi as well.

WELCOME Archaeologist.

Having undergone rigourous coverage in my 'O' level Archaeology exam, I stuck with Pyramids, not one of my favs, just don't let Pooh hear me say that!
