Discworld reading-order guide

with 3 comments

Via Boing Boing, this guide to the order in which to read Terry Pratchett’s Discworld series. I’m just starting, so I don’t know yet how good it will be, but it’s nice to have a map.

  1. I have read one and it was fun. When it was first suggested to me, die hard fans assured me order is not that important. (I did read, however, one of their recommended starter novels: colour of magic.)

  2. You’ll love the Discworld novels. They’re a lot of fun, no matter in which order you decide to attack them. But there are often little references to other books, which you may miss if you don’t follow a certain chronology.

    Once that’s done, be sure to get “Good Omens”, a collaboration between Pratchett and Neil Gaiman. It’s also one not to be missed.

  3. I find his books somewhat repetitive. But you always walk away with a gem or two after finishing one. I find that this outweighs any weak points.

    For example, the concept retrophrenology.
