    Well, it's only the most witty and entertaining series ever written(IMO,before I get flamed).
    I think this is quite true of Discworld. It's not an intellectuals book nor is it brilliantly-written or anything but I can't think of a better cheer-yourself-up series and plus I get so many giggles reading it. And I want to marry Death. And pet his Binky (slightly double entendre sounding....oh well).

    Sure I'll add you to the list

    There was this other Pullman book... Lyra's Dictionary I think it was called. I couldn't buy it though cos it was ridiculously expensive. I suppose it was something like Quidditch Through The Ages though?
    The other Pullman book was called Lyra's Oxford. It was expensive for the small volume of the book and the content quality. I got it though. :p: :rolleyes: It's not a patch on the trilogy.

    Slightly like LoTR imo but less heavy and easier to read.

    Having said that, the font is annoying small. I keep having to squint. Why can't they have a normal size print which anyone can read?!

    A timeless piece of great literature.
    There's so much to say but briefly-
    Many aspects in the book applies now as it did in the time when the book was first published.
    The book dwells on many of the beliefs which I strongly believe in all contained as metaphors.
    I think it also has the abililty to reveal a lot about the readers themselves, you will discover much about yourself, as well as about life, friendship, love, courage, to name a few.
    But above all, it's an intriguing and magical story.

    Quite possibly the best book ever . The characters are well-developed, and the songs aren't too anoying :p:. The book can also be read in various different metaphorical ways (such as Mimo said, e.g. life), and really helped to pull the fantasy genre up.

    Overall, brilliant!

    The movies were quite good too
