Re: Best Book Endings Thread [Spoilers obviously ahead]

Like most of Terry Pratchett's work, the ending to Small Gods was just, it was just- It was watery-eyed, happy-sad, smiley, take-a-walk, OH! -ness. The Dark Tower series by Stephen King has been mentioned already, but it deserves as many mentions as it can get. To those who've read it, there'...

Re: Best and Worst Discworld

I think the only truly sub-par book of his is Eric. It was simply a slap dash way to get Rincewind out of "hell".

Okay, I plead guilty. I love them all.

Re: Books that make you genuinely laugh

Just about anything by Christopher Moore and Terry Pratchett. Moore’s humor is absurd, typically unexpected, and gives the reader a warm-fuzzy-giggly feeling. Pratchett's humor is slightly more sensible, more character-related, and very satirical.

Both are awesome sauce of the highest caliber.
