Gosh! Thanks ungoliant!! But which ones are really great for a starter, you know, to make you wanna read the rest? Or should I start from the beginning? :P

After the Fifth Elephant, there's The Truth, The Thief of Time, The Last Hero and The Amazing Maurice and his Educated Rodents.

Wow! When did you meet him, Boring?

And I forgot Carpe Jugulum. That before or after Elephant?

just before. There should be 28 in all in the list now. And I met Pratchett before. He used to live down here and I bumped into him in the street, cos my mate knew him. I'd never heard of the guy, so my mate lent me one of his books (all of which were signed) and the rest, as they say, is history. Never seen him since I knew who he was though :D

They only have Pyramids in the library, so I'll have to start with that one. Is it any good? :)

Pyramids was a laugh, if your into Egyptology enough to get the jokes; I was and did.

Try to get the first two on Ungoliant's list; however, most of the rest can stand alone. But if you read them in order, you get to watch the characters' development(?) and will already know and appreciate their foibles when you again meet them in the subsequent books. :D

Hrumph! So everyone's met him except for me! Damn! I'd like to meet him & ask him why he wrote Elephant.

Tommy: Like Grondie said. But Pratchett also wrote other books, but I didn't like them except for 'Good Omens'.

Working on 'Men at Arms' only others I own unread are 'Soul Music' and 'Fifth Elephant' (Amazon was pushing it for almost nothing if you also bought Good Omens--which I got a kick out of). Must go back and try for the missing #'s 9-13 before trying for #17 and beyond. Will save Fifth Elephant until I've read all the rest so as not to become disenfatuated with Mr. P, having been fore-warned by the eight-legged, and she shall be heeded. :D
