Hello there! ^_^ I just got into the Discworld series myself some three, almost four weeks ago. I am sure I went out of order (mom decided it'd be cute and order the books offline out of order) . I started with the book Nightwatch, but that was enough to have me hooked right away. Seriously, I took that thing with me to school even (so I could read it when I had free time). Upon finishing it I have concluded that;

A) I think Sam Vimes is a very interesting character and I would like to learn more about him.

B) Terry Pratchett knows how to write, and write propely in my opinion. There is a sort of slyness to his style of writing.

C) Carcer Dun is a very interesting villian. He wasn't the typical 'ahahaha stabby rip stab stab' serial killer (okay maybe he was a little, okay alot) but there were moments when it was like "hm, he almost seems human" 


Those were the three things I wanted to say, lol. Seems like I am the only person on these communities that likes Carcer. Everywhere else I go it's like 'we shall not mention him', lol.

I think it is the most human of things to be unbelieveably cruel and violent, then to claim it is inhumane. :)
Carcer IS interesting. A lovely study of the psychotic mind. And a good example of why parents should tell their children "no" everynow and again...
welcome to the community.. we almost never post. sorry :(

I read Night Watch first too! And after that I was completely hooked... And still am.
I love Vimes. He's once of my favourite charactes.

Whyyyyyy have I never commented on this? :O I am, of course, a SUPER UBER CARCER FAN--though I actually despised him the first time round--and I firmly maintain that you need to read more Discworld. Especially Hogfather, as anyone who likes Carcer is pretty much guaranteed to like Teatime. (Er, unless you've read it already by this point....)

On a completely unrelated note, is there any chance that you could hook me up with an mp3 or wma file of "Wilkommen"? Because I can't find it anywhere and I really really liked it the one time I heard it.

Actually, I love Carcer. He is a pretty real serial killer, instead of just being off his nut and killing people he has that streak of I can pretend and be almost human and make people like me to hide the fact that I do not reall think of people as people. Does any of that make sense? Probably not, but who cares I still think he is a great villian, then again I like Dexter, both the books and TV show, so I may just be a little weird.
