Greetings and welcome to my page. I'm glad to see I'm not the only bored person in front of their computer today. Pop in for the randomness, stay for the awesome.
The most amazing man you'll ever meet...
Discworld is a lot more important than people give it credit.
Guess which movie I just realized I need to watch
DEATH is one of my favorite characters in anything ever.
I heartily recommend any of the books focused on Death. I’m not so much keen on Mort, but Reaper Man onward are fantastic, especially once Death’s granddaughter (yes, granddaighter) Susan gets drawn in (Soul Music).
In this instance, it’s Hogfather, and honestly I recommend the book over the movie. Not that the movie was bad, but… Discworld can be a hard thing to satisfyingly translate into a visual narrative, especially the weirdass meta-fantasy that Death and crew frequently end up in. And the “narrator’s” puns and footnotes.
(Also recommended, most of the City Watch books, starting with Guards! Guards!, but honestly the most recent one, Snuff, left me really cold and felt really skippable.)
I would add to this the Tiffany Aching books, but really, any Discworld book is a good reads - though I like the early ones slightly less, and Unseen Academicals seemed to be lacking any kind of story.
