Thanks!

Something that makes me grin every time is "Death smiled"... it's gotten only funnier since Terry started omitting the "not a lot of choice since he's a skeleton" explanation.

I keep changing my mind about the funniest, Nearly every book by Sir Terry that i pick up is funny in places , Just reading The Fifth Elephant which is extreemly funny, didn't like Strata very much though :(

They're not discworld books though, and not so funny. I've read them, but can't really remember anything about them.

I liked Strata, thought the idea of it funny, Dark side of the Sun is different altogether,OK but out of the two Stata wins for me. :mrgreen:

I think the Terry Pratchett Books will read better the second time round especially Strata :D

My parents are visiting at the moment. Listening to my Dad giggle his way through Reaper Man is wonderful. He tries to read out bits but just ends up laughing more.

Is this your Dad's first foray into the World of Disc?

Soul Music and The last Hero, although there are absolutely hilarious passages in most of the books.
