I know about that cliffhanger thing...it was not fun.  Here everybody just disappears and I have NO idea what happens next!  *exasperated sigh*  I did find Maurice & His Amazing Educated Rodents.  I like it but was a little creeped out by the whole rodent thing...especially near the end of the book.  Things crawling in the dark are not to be read about when you have not had much sleep and are reading late at night! :-\ :D

Eurk.  No, they're not. :P
But I love the names.  And it's certainly a different take on the Pied Piper tale!

Maurice & His Amazing Educated Rodents was the only Pratchett book that I actually disliked. Like you said, the whole thing was creepy- that's one Pratchett I won't reread any time soon.

I agree but still...Maurice is pretty funny.  "Hey!  Stupid-looking kid!  Naw, down here kid..."   :D

(Envy envy envy. . .) Wish I could afford to!  Oh, well, c'est la vie.  I stopped at the bookstore Monday & discovered it.  Yeah, looks like lots of Discworld fun.  Clearly, Gladys is going to be a major character, & I'm looking forward to that. 
I like your bat-bunny, too, Thea.  Would you call that a babunny?

There is also 'The Wit and Wisdom of the Discworld' that just came out - humor from his books collected by Stephen Briggs.

I am a real book addict and have to get my favorite authors NOW...  ::)

I enjoy them too, but they point up my 'englishness', or what some call 'the blond factor'.  It took me months before I realized he was named for his willing activity, not the general lack of enough names.  That is, Rob Anybody nac mac Feegle, and in comparison with the six or eight sizes of Jocks.  D'oh!
