I loved it then and I still like it a lot and in some ways it's a purer Discworld or a more raw and unformed one where humour is perhaps more studied.
I voted 'love it' in honour of it being the way I discovered both Terry and Discworld

I'm one of those people who can't read a series out of sync though, I knew that was the first one so I had to start there and go in order, and i'm glad i've read them all in order so I can see the characters progress but at the same time I think if I were recommending TP to someone else I don't think i'd have them start with the first few, the style definitely changes and gets better later on.
