Not sure if there are any Pratchett's readers but I have recently his recent translated book into Polish - "Snuff" - and IMO it's his best book ever.

*resurrects thread*

I love Pratchett's work, although I've fallen way behind with my reading. The most recent book of his I've read is Soul Music, which is also my favourite - but I've seen the BBC adaptations of Hogfather and Going Postal, which are great fun.

I haven't read 'Snuff' yet. I'm looking forward to it. :)
