The original novels are written & published out of chronological order, and then there’s 2 prequels to the first book. Reply Claymore says: May 1, 2019 at 9:08 pm Same for the Hornblower novels. Reply BB/VA says: May 2, 2019 at 5:36 am And Marion Zimmer Bradley’s Darkover. She was kind enough to provide a chronological reading list though, as well as making the books able to stand alone. Reply Ritz says: May 2, 2019 at 9:36 am Discworld. I still don’t know where to start. Reply Aaron says: May 2, 2019 at 11:44 am Just jump in wherever, the water’s fine. ^_^ Though Wyrd Sisters is the start of the witches books, and Guards, Guards the start of the city watch books, so those aren’t bad places to begin if the particular storylines seem more interesting to you. In general I’ve heard that the earliest books (like Colo(u)r of Magic) are actually NOT the best starting points; the above two, Equal Rites, Small Gods, and Monstrous Regiment all get mentions as good first reads there. Just find some and start! Reply SueB,NH says: May 5, 2019 at 10:08 pm Going Postal is a very good start for Discworld. I haven’t read the book about the Hogfather (Hogwatch, I think), but I loved the movie. Whether or not it’s anything like the book, I don’t know. Reply glitterboy2098 says: June 1, 2019 at 9:08 pm it’s pretty close. the made for TV movie version just lacks Pratchett’s wonderful elaborations and prose. Reply Sherman says: May 3, 2019 at 12:11 am Wheel of Time did the same thing. I guess prequels are common for book series. Reply Ignatz says: August 31, 2020 at 7:14 am Shakespeare’s Major and Minor Tetralogies (Richard II, Henry IV Pt 1, Pt II, and Henry V; and Henry VI Pt. 1,2,3 and Richard III).
