Hellooo and welcome from me to Archaeologist! I actually enjoyed Pyramids, but I enjoy winding Pooh up even more. :P

Thanks everyone!

Sorry, Teppic. I suspect you rather like Pyramids.

Hi Archaeologist! :D

You are quite clearly, completely and utterly raving bonkers! :D

So you'll probably fit in well here. :wink:

I know I said The Truth was my least favorite a few pages back
But after reading it again I enjoyed it a lot more
At the moment my least favorite is probably Night Watch
It's a brilliant book but just not as good as the others

Splutters into tea mug. Worst? It's up in my top five! Wonderful story, plot runs along nicely and you get to find out a lot more aboout the birth of the Guilds. Lu Tse is a brilliant character only surpased by Angua!

Yep, you're right, I like it! :lol: :wink:

I wouldn't call it the worst, but it's not in my top ten. :D

I adore Night Watch. :( It blew me away. I liked how dramatic it got. I think the whole 'meeting his younger self' was handled a little strangely - I would be a little more in awe than Vimes was, but maybe that's just Vimes for you.

It's not a bad book
It's brilliant , actually in my top 38 (It's number 38 )
But the others are just better IMO

Hmmm... for me it would have to be ISWM. I just didn't enjoy it as much as others and found it painfully childlike in places (yes I know it is a book for younger readers, but I thought it was even more than the other Aching books).

Its the last book on my re-reading list for TP

The Thief of Time.

I'm going to re-read it soon, just because it was in the library, and neither The Fifth Elephant nor The Truth was. Maybe I shall enjoy it more this time.

The Thief of Time was brilliant
It's in my top 10 although The Truth was better

Joining in the general theme of despairing wails as soon as someone claims a least favourite..

What! Thief of Time is definitely in my top three, one of the funniest of the recent books
