I discuss mine here
Both of my brothers have read through most of the Discworld books. You can always tell when they have finished another because they act depressed I haven't finished one in entirety yet, but I love the dedication in Gaurds! Gaurds! --
“They may be called the Palace Guard, the City Guard, or the Patrol. Whatever the name, their purpose in any work of heroic fantasy is identical: it is, round about Chapter Three (or ten minutes into the film) to rush into the room, attack the hero one at a time, and be slaughtered. No one ever asks them if they want to.
This book is dedicated to those fine men.”
― Terry Pratchett, Guards! Guards!
Have to say, some of my favourite Pratchett stories aren't part of his Discworld series. The 'Truckers' trilogy is just fun and clever, and I come back to it again and again. Also, I really liked 'Strata' and 'The Carpet People', but have not returned to them for re-reading.
As to Discworld, I like 'The Wee Free Men' and the character of Tiffany Aching a great deal, especially as she aged through the next books that centred upon her. I also truly enjoyed 'The Amazing Maurice and His Educated Rodents.
I truly miss Terry Pratchett. His humour, sense of play, and cleverness will never be equalled.
Impossible to choose just one as they are all different in approach and theme. Great books in my opinion.
While all the Discworld books are fantastic, I think Thud really stands out from the rest. It has an amazing story and important theme.
