Hate to agree with the J-I*b, but I thought the mall bit was pants too. :P

Mind you, I remembered that Susan wasn't in it. :lol:

You'll find colour of magic a bit different to reaper man but its still a good book. I found the DW books got better after the first few (i know a few of the hardcore will shout me down for this) so after reading CoM and then the light fantastic you'll have great fun working through the series. The Death Books are all fantastic. :D
I still think it's a fun read Pip and Pterry did say if he had to write it again it would be different,but I like it for what it is a piss take out of the fantasy genre and the stereotypes that were about when it was written. :)


Not going to disagree as i still like the books and find them very funny but just don't think they are as good as many others in the series (except pyramids which sucks :wink: )

Not to interrupt you, but, don't you think it's about time you make an avatar with a pic of pyramids and the text 'sucks'? *innocent headtilt* :wink:

Changing avatars can lead to a chronic attack of handbags resulting in severe haematoma. :wink:

Can we also avoid antagonising Pooh regarding Pyramids? I'm still got burn scars from the last flame war. Like this:
