I see that MC has finally finished The Colour OF Magic. If I may recommend, try Going Postal by Pratchett.
I read Going Postal at the beginning of this year, actually - it's what really got me into Prachett. Thanks for the recommendation, though (all three of them ) Is there another Prachett that you think to be particularly good - I'm thinking of reading Guards, Guards next
Guards, Guards, is a good one. go with it. There are many of his that are so good. In the meantime I will take a look at some of the Pratchett books that i have read and see if I can recommend a few really good ones.
