Which to read first?

Postby PyscoFalcon » Sun Nov 27, 2011 7:45 pm

Just got back from Hogswatch and bought 3 books. " stories and Nany Oggs cook book.

The stories are Thud and UA.
However I'm in a pickle at which to read first. Unfortunatly I can't read both at same time :/

You have until I finish reading Towers of Midnight (book 13 in WoT series) before I count votes and get reading winner. So 3 days :D :lol:

Throw them in the air and read the one that hits you.

Read Thud first. Its earlier in the sequence anyway and I think its a better book :D Its a good lead in to Snuff as well :D

I agree with Pip, I would read Thud first, I much prefer the atmosphere of Thud to that of UA. Also Nanny Ogg's Cookbook is brilliant- very good fun!

I do like the little Anecdotes in the cookbook . The publishers notes are great :lol:

I'd leave the Cookbook as it's one you can pick up and leaf through at intermittent quiet times since it isn't a story like the other two and doesn't require extended devotion to reading (i.e. you could easily read a page or two while reading one of the other two, without it being too distracting). :)

I recommend it Tony, some of the recipes are delicious. :D

EDIT: Just remembered that you are vegetarian but I'm sure you can find suitable substitutes for the big round lumps of (named) meat. :P

Named meat, :lol:

Yeah, the whole tone is very funny in the cookbook! Just re-read Maskerade, forgot how funny the dinner scene is. :mrgreen: Naughty Mrs Ogg!
