| As the other topic says, discworld is awesome, but my all tijme favorite is probably Ender's Game, by orson scott card. Amazingly written, great characters, interesting plot, everything. Then again, everything by card is gret, particularly the homecoming series. that one has a bit of a slow plot, but the character development is perfect, and the setting card came up with is really good. Of course, it helps that I like sci-fi in general, although sturgeons law (tvtropes ftw) applies to a great extent there.
