Terry Pratchett's profoundly irreverent, bestselling novels have garnered him a revered position in the halls of parody next to the likes of Mark Twain, Kurt Vonnegut, Douglas Adams, and Carl Hiaasen.

    The day I read my first Discworld book I knew I finally had a favored writter. Now, years after that day and after so many books and so many writers, Terry Pratchett is still my number one. He's a league of his own and that's sums it up.

    Terry Pratchett is the author i always go back to in between books. when i finish a series and am contemplating what i want to read next Terry is what i always pick up and read knowing i will love whatever he writes. i consider myself lucky to have started reading him late in life, i still have over 20 books in the Discworld universe that i get to experience for the first time(i know i will get to experience them all for at least a second time, and i am really looking forward to that moment when i decide to re-read the series :)).

    My favorite, hands down. It's not often that I fall in love with characters and I am absolutely in love with all the inhabitants of the Discworld - even the criminals! If only Peter Jackson would do the films, sigh.

    I've read a couple of his discworld books but have never been inclined to read more. His stories themselves aren't that bad but his writing style is awful. His grammar and punctuation is like an elementary school student. I never got used to it and really was not inclined to try.

    You mean to say "his grammar and punctuation ARE like THOSE OF an elementary school student" or something like that ? Your English sounds bad also, as does mine btw. Pratchett is British, maybe that's what's confusing you.

    I found the first book refreshing and utterly original, fun and entertaining......However after reading the next 3 or 4 books, that feeling dissapeared....i was unable to force myself to continue reading the series.

    A long, long time ago I considered myself a reader who would not enjoy "humorous and not fully serious" fantasy novel, and hence avoided T. Pratchett's work. Till the first book of his I read. Personally, I find Sir Terry Pratchett's books amazingly sharp-witted and funny, but most of all, under the seemingly light and humorous facade, hiding a tremendous amount of knowledge, sagacity and wisdom. To my huge surprise I have become a complete fan of His work. It is a great lost for the fantasy literature that we will never see any more of his works written.

    That you call this a book in itself just shows how moronic you must be.

    I wasn't a big fan of the series. The writing was pretty good and I really did like the world-building; this particular universe has a very interesting historical background and the story had pretty interesting political plot points and a pretty great plot twist about one of the main characters' identities, but what really brought the series down for me was the underdeveloped and unlikable characters. I haven't read the series in a while, so I don't quite remember any of the characters' names (which kind of proves how forgettable they were to me), so bear with me. The barbarian character I liked, but he really didn't do anything the series but fight, so his role was not really essential -- literally any fighting character could have taken his place, which left me disappointed. The girl from the warring country in the south is just a bitter woman who doesn't trust anyone and who never changes in the end and, like the barbarian, doesn't serve a lot of purpose other than to fight. The wizard was a good character at first, until I realized everything he did was for unexplained selfish reasons, and the main character is a spoiled teenager / young adult who claims to have changed during his long journey in the second book but whose actions say otherwise. To sum up all of the characters: their all a bunch of shallow bitter a**holes that hardly have any redeeming qualities.
    Honestly, I may be a bit biased because I now compare everything to George R.R. Martin’s books (they’re my favorite), but in this case I have good cause. When you read A Song of Ice and Fire, you can’t help but love the characters as they grow and change as the story progresses. I have to admit I used to hate Jaime Lannister, but now I think he is a great character, because of how he changed for the better. Even some of the relatively minor characters in ASOIAF are great; Davos Seaworth and even Varys are two of my favorite characters. But in the First Law Trilogy, I just don’t care about the characters from start to finish, the characters are uninteresting as it is, they have no redeeming or likeable qualities and they never change for the better.
    And don’t get me started about the heroes’ quest. The entire second book is pointless. The first book is about developing the character’s and building the world, as the wizard recruits his chosen few to go to the edge of the world to find some mystical stone that can end the wars in the north and south and I enjoyed it well enough, but after travelling an entire continent and spending the entire second book on this journey… the stone isn’t there. The end. The heroes’ all go back to the capital, but as it turns out, the wizard finds that the stone was in the capital all along! Overall I though the series was… bleh. But I did like the writing and world building so I may pick up one of Abercrombie’s later novels, eventually.
    On a side note, the Best Served cold Amazon.com link is linked to the wrong book. In case a site admin reads this…

    Hi everyone!

    I’m J.Y. Olmos, author of the sci-fi book series “The Hive”

    I just released my new book "The Hive: The Matriarch Saved" and would love to know everyone’s thoughts!

    Here's a short summary:
    When Earth is invaded, Evonne witnesses her family’s deaths and wakes up imprisoned in a room with other women of childbearing age. They undergo torturous experiments before being rescued by seemingly human alien warriors on a reconnaissance mission. Evonne’s ordeal has unleashed new abilities in her, powers she can’t fully understand or control.

    Would love to know your guys thoughts :)

    You can get a sneak peek of the first chapter on my website: http://jyobooks.com :)
