The Disc World
The Discworld is a world of magic and of extreme opposites. Starting from the bustling metropolis of Ankh-Morpork, the oldest city on the disc world governed with iron hand and velvet glove by the patrician Lord Vetinari, the journey leads across the old empire Klatch, which has fifteen terms for murder, across the mysterious continent XXXX and the little kingdom of Lancre to the dark Überwald, where it blusters at night. Of course, there are also numerous inhabitants of this strange world: witches like Oma Wetterwachs, Nanny Ogg and Magrat Garlic as well as a lot of wizards, dwarves, goblins and dragons.
The individual novels partly tell interrelated stories, but you can also read them in any order. However, some stories that describe people and places are much better understood and integrated in case you´d also read the other novels.
