My favourite books? In order?

Wyrd Sisters Having suffered analysing Macbeth three times in school I was thankful for this book, pleased someone had the guts to parody one of the grimmest Shakespeare plays and make me laugh! Also it was the first one I read.

Reaper Man Death taking time out? How cool is that! I loved it also because it introduced Rat Death to. I couldn't stop laughing at this novel.

Thud! I love this one because it shows how deeply Angua cares for Carrot (which I find sweet! Personally I think that Terry should marry those two off soon!) But aside from that it was brilliant also to show how deeply Vimes cares for his wife and son. It makes the characters more believable. Vimes is one of my favourite characters. Plus I love the young city trolls trying to get high on Slab!

Last one:

Moving Pictures I love the parody of Hollywood, and as much as I adore watching the movies I do find Hollywood as a franchise rather false. And it introduces Gaspode. I love Banged Grains as another name for Popcorn.

That is my list. Not comprehensive, but I can't think at the moment.

well it has to be any with the wonderful commander sam vimes and captain carrot, but if I had to choose it would be guards guards because its where we meet carrot for the first time, who wouldn't want a hero like him even if he is ginger :)

Welcome to the site! :D I'm afraid I'm not so keen on Carrot - still each to their own. :)
