Carl Sagan's "The Demon-Haunted World: Science as a Candle in the Dark" might be the most important book I've ever read.
103 hopehurts His discworld books are full of such beautiful, thoughtful, tender, irreverent prose, I find new gems with each re-read ‘No one is actually dead until the ripples they cause in the world die away...’ Reaper Man
32 DavidHewlett I still have not read The Shepherd's Crown. Not because I don't want to, but because I am listening to the audio-books together with my wife, and want to cherish experiencing his last work together with her. We're at "The Amazing Maurice ..." right now, she has loved every minute of it and the best (IMHO) is yet to come.

13 CarrionCandy I recently ventured away from his immense Discworld series to read Nation and liked it very much. My favorite thing about Terry was that he could somehow invent worlds where science, magic, and gods could all coexist and then, for his final trick, convince the reader that our world was one of these.

11 salamandah99 I read the Tiffany Aching series as my mother was dying a slow death from cancer. I read these books with tears in my eyes. When I learned Sir Pratchett had died, I cried for hours. And I cried when Granny died. I cried when I finished the last one because there would never be another Pratchett book. My mom has been dead almost three years now. I am crying while I write this.
8 DeliciousSuffering Those tweets, man. Brilliant and wrenching.
5 Reutermo Still the "celebrity" death that moved me the most, was actually surprised how sad I got. *The Colour of Magic* and *Wee Free Men* was the first two books I read in English after I had devoured the Harry Potter books. Now, more than a decade later, I have studied literature science at Uni and will soon get my degree in Library Science. I am pretty sure my life would have taken another way if I hadn't picked up those books for so long time ago.
6 oswan What Disc World series (Guards, Witches, Technology, etc.) would make the best Netflix episodes? I personally would love everyone to see Granny Weatherwax on the small screen.
5 rexydan24 Read Hogfather over Christmas and it's now one of my fav books!
4 Jaffab0rn The sheer amount of memorable quotes in his books is incredible
5 lj9337 named my dog Eskarina, because of this. She is turning 3years old in 4days
3 FartsMcKenzie Could someone recommend a good book of his to start out with? I started the Colour of Magic but just couldn’t get into it. Everyone loves his books so I think I just picked the wrong first book to try. Any recommendations?
3 Lazy_Sans Even with his great fanbase, I do think his books were very underappreciated by public. In my eyes he is one of greatest authors of 20th century.
