    autobiography of a blue-eyed devil: my life and times in a racist, imperialist society.

    bought it for the title, staying for the soul crushing non-fiction.
    I wrote a four word letter.

    Rereading Small Gods by Pratchett. I'm not so in reading his books as in re-reading them. Seriously, some of them i re-read for 10 times. Great author that progressed much during 90s.

    I rarely read something just for the sake of story (only when i want to pretend to be intelligent man with degree, then i pick Remarque from the shelf) and prefer word play and humor to be in the book and he nails it.

    I found Small Gods curiously unfunny. Decent enough story but weird lack of humour.

    Read by first Pratchett book only last month - Equal Rites - It was good, funny and all, but almost like a children's book. Bit too light. I'd prefer something of his that is a bit deeper. Do you have any suggestions?

    Alison, I always recommend Guards! Guards! or Pyramids for people looking to get into Discworld. Pyramids is a standalone title while Guards! Guards! has several direct sequels. You should find these two less childish than Equal Rites though Pratchett in general is very kid-friendly material, of course.

    Reading a book called Manhunt, about the 12 day hunt for John Wilkes Booth after he murdered president Lincoln. I like it a lot. It's unfortunately taking me a while to finish it though.
