Which of the Discworld books would you recommend to someone as the best one to start with?
Assume they have never heard of Terry or Discworld before.
I think I'd go with Guards! Guards! as it's not only a good introduction to the city, but the Watch as well. We get to see the City, the Watch and how it all works through the eyes of an outsider and a somewhat niave outsider at that. Perfect as an introduction!
But what do you think?
Look, you've got it all wrong! You don't NEED to follow ME, You don't NEED to follow ANYBODY! You've got to think for your selves! You're ALL individuals!
Yes! We're all individuals!
