Terry Pratchett's profoundly irreverent, bestselling novels have garnered him a revered position in the halls of parody next to the likes of Mark Twain, Kurt Vonnegut, Douglas Adams, and Carl Hiaasen.

3.5 Equal Rites (Discworld / Witches)
My second ever Discworld novel, this one started out strongly with a lot great humour and some great one-liners, but it sort of petered out for me about mid-way. The wizard Drum Billet knows that he will soon die and travels to a place where the eighth son of an eighth son is about to be born, but...
