What's your favourite Discworld book? And why?
Sounds like a simple question, but with Terry's books it isn't. I've had favourites that I later didn't much care for and books I didn't much care for that have become favourites.
I love the way that Terry's books have become richer and deeper as the series has progressed and how the Disc has become a more 'real' place.
But my favourite is now and has been for some time: Small Gods.
Terry really looks into the belief system with this book. How a god becomes powerful not by what he/she/it does, but by human belief. A god is nothing without believers and gods are there for humanity and because of humanity.
Hat Full of Sky
is another favourite, but for a very personal reason. It's the book that brought me and my wife Sharlene together. Sharlene used to own a bookstore and consequently had an advanced reading copy of the book. She had read it before anyone else on the board we were on at the time. I came across a copy in Tesco that had been put on display accidentally too early. So we started to write to each other about this book that we'd both read before anyone else - and the rest is history.
What's your favourite Terry book? It doesn't have to be one of the Discworld series.
