The Discworld Graphic Novels: The Colour of Magic & The Light Fantastic (2008)

The artists here have quite the challenge - how do you adapt Pratchett's first two magnificent Discworld books in a way that does justice to them? So much of Pratchett's genius is in the narration and dialogue, and much of that doesn't work in a graphic novel. Still, this does a good job of tel...

The Discworld Graphic Novels: The Colour of Magic & The Light Fantastic (2008) by Terry Pratchett

The Long Mars (2014)

Fantastic storyline in with much more going on than The Long War. the interactions of Sally and Maggie are really awesome. Their quests are becoming much more interesting and the consequences of everyone's actions are much more strongly felt. I still think there's not that much going on in terms ...

The Long Mars (2014) by Terry Pratchett

The Long War (2013)

At least as good as the first book in the series.The step between The Long Earth and The Long War (and between the Long War and The Long Mars, for that matter) are more like different chapters in a book, or between different episodes in a TV-show than what I would generally expect of books in a s...

The Long War (2013) by Terry Pratchett

A Blink of the Screen: Collected Short Fiction (2012)

I love Sir Terry Pratchett's works, he is great. This collection of short stories has some from the Discworld series, but a majority were just other stories not related to it, and both were great. My favourite one is with Death as the main character, "Death and What Comes Next," which also has on...

A Blink of the Screen: Collected Short Fiction (2012) by Terry Pratchett

The Long Mars LP (2014)

Very torn on this one. The book is chock-full of fascinating scientific, ethical, and philosophical ideas; yet the plotting is absent or very bad, as is the pacing. So it's certainly not a gripping story; however, it offers excellent worldbuilding --the occasional political naivite aside--, with ...

The Long Mars LP (2014) by Terry Pratchett

Długa wojna (2014)

Originally, when I finished this book I gave it four stars here on Goodreads and quickly clicked over to my next To-Read. Then I thought about it overnight and realized that this wasn't that great of a novel. The first one was great, a cool though experiment in parallel universes, A.I., and cre...

Długa wojna (2014) by Terry Pratchett

Mgnienie ekranu (2013)

How do I say this without ruining my credibility as a long-time sci-fi/fantasy fan? This is the first of Terry Pratchett's work that I've read. His name was definitely not unknown to me, but I'd never gotten around to reading anything of his. So when I saw this book on my Amazon Vine newsletter, ...

Mgnienie ekranu (2013) by Terry Pratchett

A Slip of the Keyboard: Collected Non-Fiction (2014)

I don't know why I was surprised as I was that I thoroughly enjoyed this book. While it's simply a compilation of non-fiction pieces that Pratchett has done (forewords, articles, speeches, etc), his humor is always present...even when he's incandescent with rage. It's another doorway into which...

A Slip of the Keyboard: Collected Non-Fiction (2014) by Terry Pratchett

Dragons at Crumbling Castle (2014)

Dragons at Crumbling Castle is a collection of 14 tales for children by Terry Pratchett but, trust me, you don’t need to be a child to appreciate them – all you need is a sense of humour and whimsy and perhaps a little private space so that people won’t stare at you funny when you read them on th...

Dragons at Crumbling Castle (2014) by Terry Pratchett

Witches Abroad (2002)

Witches Abroad is the 12th Discworld novel by Sir Terry Pratchett. The thing about Discworld is that you don't necessarily have to read his books in order. They all take place in the same world, and all the characters pop up and make cameos in each other's stories, but it doesn't really matter. B...

Witches Abroad (2002) by Terry Pratchett

Good Omens: The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch (2006)

In my personal hierarchy of books, this one comes a close second after Bulgakov's The Master and Margarita. What can I say - like (diabolical) father, like (infernal) son. "It may help to understand human affairs to be clear that most of the great triumphs and tragedies of history are caused not ...

Good Omens: The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch (2006) by Terry Pratchett

The Color of Magic (2005)

Reading The Color of Magic is akin to eating an entire bowl of ice cream just a little too fast...sure, it may cause your head to hurt at times, but the sweet rewards make it all worth it!Filled with ambitious wizards and ruthless assassins, the city of Ankh-Morpork has survived many dangers in t...

The Color of Magic (2005) by Terry Pratchett

Feet of Clay (2005)

tCSI: Ankh-Morpork, that is to say the Watch storyline of the Discworld series, continues in Feet of clay and once again there’s more socio-political philosophy than you can shake a stick at. Marxism, feminism, you name it, Pratchett’s got it, though fortunately they are presented in a much more ...

Feet of Clay (2005) by Terry Pratchett

Men at Arms (2003)

Men at Arms, the first[1] book in Pratchett's City Watch subseries, makes for a wonderful introduction to the characters and world of Discworld. Admittedly, it's comparitively weak in some respects; like so many other series I've encountered, it suffers from "first book syndrome": weaker characte...

Men at Arms (2003) by Terry Pratchett

Jingo (2006)

The Complete Discworld RereadI am a Granny Weatherwax guy. With no hesitation. You ask me which Pratchett story arc is the best and I will yell to the world how awesome the witches of Lancre are. But I got a dirty secret; it wasn’t always this way to me. Granny is the other woman, the one I l...

Soul Music (1999)

Rock n Roll invades the Discworld26 July 2014tWell, I can't believe that I have just finished my 16th Terry Pratchett Discworld novel, and that is over two years (no, not sixteen books in two years, 16 Discworld novels in two years) since I decided that I would give Pratchett the benefit of the d...

Soul Music (1999) by Terry Pratchett

The Light Fantastic (2000)

"Inside every sane person, there's a madman struggling to get out. That's what I've always thought. No one goes mad quicker than a totally sane person." The second installment in the Discworld series is a bigger, funnier delight. One heck of a Laugh Out Loud read.Something I consider very special...

Mort (2001)

This review contains major spoilers for the movie Pusher 3The central joke in Mort is that Death is basically, you know, just a guy doing a job. The other day, I thought of Terry Pratchett's novel for the first time in ages when we saw I'm The Angel of Death, Nicolas Winding Refn's brilliant co...

Pyramids (2015)

3.5 / 5As always, I will avoid going into describing the synopsis of the book, you can read that up there ^. Though, as is usual the case with Pratchett's books, the blurb won't really help you much. Instead, I will go straight into my review.Quick summary?: If you generally like Terry Pratchett'...

Pyramids (2015) by Terry Pratchett

Small Gods (2005)

This was the first Pratchett book I read, and I'm glad of it. While it has the humor and satire that is inherent in all of the Discworld books, it also has something else - something to say. It was evident, even from the first time I read this book, that Pratchett had put some real heavy thinking...

The Truth (2002)

Complete Discworld Reread “An’ then…then I’m gonna get medieval on his arse.” There were more pressing problems but this one intrigued Mr. Pin. “How, exactly?” he said. “I thought maybe a maypole,” said Mr. Tulip reflectively. “An’ then a display of country dancing, land tillage under t...

The Truth (2002) by Terry Pratchett

Reaper Man (2005)

Original review posted on The Book SmugglersReaper Man is a book that I find really hard to define. It would be so easy to simply describe it as a hilarious – or even absurdist – romp about the chaos that ensues after Death is (forcibly) retired without an immediate replacement to take over his ...

Reaper Man (2005) by Terry Pratchett

Maskerade (1995)

I loved this book. Gee, I say that about every Pratchett book, don't I?Ah well, it can't be helped. Pratchett has his own unique wonderful style and is truly a master at his craft.So many things that I loved about this book.1. I love Agnes. Her struggles and voice was authentic for being an over-...

Johnny and the Bomb (2007)

Today I am revisiting my very first blogs posts here and on my other blog Randomly Reading. It isn't because I haven't been reading, I have actually read lots of blogable books lately. I just thought it would be fun to see this again. And I still love it as much now as I did on all subsequent ...

Johnny and the Bomb (2007) by Terry Pratchett

The Wit and Wisdom of Discworld (2007)

I’m a fairly new fan of Terry Pratchett’s Discworld, but I got really into it after listening to Monstrous Regiment read by Stephen Briggs. So I got this book from Amazon a little while ago and overall I really like it. It is a way for me to (sort of) know what some stories are about without havi...

The Wit and Wisdom of Discworld (2007) by Terry Pratchett

Thud! (2006)

"What kind of creature defines itself by hatred?"That is the overarching theme of Terry Pratchett's Thud! which is indisputably one of his best works - in content and execution and the amount of serious thinking it makes me do after seeing the usual 'mundane' things through the prism of Pratchett...

Thud! (2006) by Terry Pratchett

Monstrous Regiment (2003)

Pratchett addresses two questions here: (1) “Do you think it's possible for an entire nation to be insane?” and (2) Does - and, more importantly, should - a well-placed pair of socks (for 'certain' sort of padding) make a difference? “The presence of those seeking the truth is infinitely to b...

Interesting Times (1998)

Rincewind in China22 August 2015tWhen my friend leant me this book he simply said 'Rincewind' at which I rolled my eyes. I must say that Rincewind is certainly not my favourite Discworld character, even though some of the books in which he has starred have been quite good. However I wasn't really...

Author: Terry PratchettTitle: Making MoneyFormat: eBookRating: 5/5I love Terry Pratchett. Love, love, love him. He's funny, which in my book is one of the most important qualities an author can have.

The Fifth Elephant (2008)

I know that many have stated that there had been a decline in his writing as time goes on… I personally would have to disagree. There is a change in his writing; however I feel that it has been for the better. As his book have progressed, he has leaned less toward the quick giggle and insane ru...

Wintersmith (2006)

While I went a bit nuts with the quotes, I was actually quite restrained. There is so much that is funny in this third installment in the Tiffany Aching fantasy series about an apprentice witch (it's thirty-fifth in the overall Discworld fantasy series).In 2007, Wintersmith won a Locus Award for ...

Sourcery (2008)

Why wizard's don't have children16 September 2012tWhile the forth book in Pratchett's Discworld series is still amusing, and very colourful, I found it to be a little duller than the others that I have so far read.

The Amazing Maurice and His Educated Rodents (2001)

Всичко започва от по-далеч. От това как едни плъхове започнали да Мислят. И осъзнали, че трябва да има правила (нещо, което дори на нас, хората, често ни убягва. Например простичкото правило „Не пикай, където се храниш“. Доста човеци изглежда смятат, че са над тия неща). Уличният котарак Морис пр...

The reviews here are quite varied on this book, they are all obviously written by Pratchett fans however one of the problems with being a Pratchett fan is that he has SO many novels that you are bound to find a few that aren’t your taste. I personally loved this book. My favorite of Pratchett’s...

Truckers: The First Book of the Nomes (2015)

The Dark Side of the Sun (1988)

Като говорим за нещо, каквото и да е, на Пратчет, трябва винаги да сме сигурни, че ще има значителна ебавка със жанра, независимо за кой точно ще настане въпрос. Точно тази книжка се явява саркастичния трибют към всичко сайфайско обично и международно, като дори и аз можах да зацепя паралелите с ...
