I want to get back into reading so I'm easing myself in with something I already know. I tried Equal Rites first but it didn't take. I've begun re-reading Artemis Fowl again.
@Gargron Terry Pratchett is my favorite author but yeah, the older ones are kind of a chore
@Gargron Would personally recommend The Dresden Files
@Gargron what a throwback, Artemis Fowl was one of my favourites as a kid! Possibly only because of the sparkly cover though.
@JakeMansion No, it's actually really good, remember the characters! Root! Fowly! Mulch! Butler!
@Gargron True! Holly was probably one of the first bad-ass female characters I came across too. Ishould dig them up and re-read.
@Gargron I RECOMMEND MURDERBOT SERIES
@Gargron Oh no please don't give up on Pratchett
but maybe start with Guards! Guards!, that's when the 'modern Ankh-Morpork' really started and it's a solid wassname, metaphor for the human condition, and if that's not bad enough, it's also a bloody huge fiery flying thing.
Or Pyramids, because it's filled with Ancient Egyptian AND confectionary name puns.
(The warring kingdoms of Hersheba and Djelibabi are awesome)
@Gargron man I haven't thought about Artemis Fowl in years, but I remember reading it voraciously. Thanks for reminding me!
