The very beginning is always a good place to start, GM :D

Some people say that someone completely new to the Disc might find it easier to get into the later ones, as his style definitely evolves a bit and they feature a slighter better developed and more rounded (excuse the pun) world. I know a few pretty hardcore Disc fans who say they don't even really like the earlier books, but I have to say I love them.

I don't think I even got half the brilliance of them when I first read them aged 11 or so - I hadn't read any of the classic fantasy stuff that he was fondly mocking (except The Hobbit, which I don't think really gets a mention), but they still struck a cord and got me hooked.

Yes, the first couple of books are a bit different, but I think the essential PTerry style is there. Guess they’re more of a parody of fantasy books of that time. I love it when he really gets into his stride with characters like the Watch and the Witches. I have a massive pile of new books, but am feeling a reread coming on.

:)G Pratchett's kids books are great - much of the same world view, hidden references and humour

We should have a health warning here - Pratchett can be very addictive, you soon ended up on the hard stuff (men at arms for me) - if you couldn't wait 6 months for the next paperback release, you'd already have all the other Pratchett books available by then.

They're great GM... but as Rae says some of the later early ones are better. I love Death and Granny Weatherwax.

I've been having a re read this year... started Witches abroad again last night.
