I like Terry Pratchett but haven't read any of the Discworld series. Is this a good place to start? Or should I bite the bullet and start with book #1?

This is a book aimed at kids. However it is filled with jokes for adults reading to get. Several of the characters are from the main series, so I would start with them. But for kids round 10 this is a great place to start.

You should start with "Guards, Guards!' or "Wyrd Sisters", or "Mort" and then go from there.

In any case, it's better to read them by publication date because of how much the world and ideas change.

This is my favorite story arch and the Wee Free Men are freaking hilarious, but you would be better off starting elsewhere. Maybe Wyrd Sisters or Guards! Guards!. I would still suggest grabbing this while on sale. I don't think I've ever seen this title on sale before.

No and NO. It was never aimed at kids.

"Transcript of the Formal Conference held on Sunday, August 11th, 1991 in the CompuServe Science Fiction/Fantasy Forum with Terry Pratchett author of the Discworld novels...

SysOp Barb Delaplace:
Terry <--- I'm reading Truckers and finding it delightful. When did you start writing juvenile fiction?
Terry Pratchett:
Barb...I thought that's what I always write <smirk>. I just write, and it sort of finds its own level. Truckers is only marketed for kids, the Discworld is marketed for adults, that -- apart from a few one-liners -- is all it is. Funnily enough, it's respectable to write fantasy for children, but not for adults."

Full Interview [lspace.org] for anyone interested in the facts directly from the author.

Wee Free Men was my introduction to Terry Pratchett and it was a truly positive one. Incredibly witty, hilarious on a variety of levels, with powerful story telling throughout. Ended up devouring the Tiffany Aching series, even as an adult.

Unrelated,
Apparently it was supposed to become a movie since 2016 with Jim Henson company involved but it appears to be in limbo so I don't know if it will actually come to fruition...

There are flow charts online that sort the series by main characters, because they were written out of order. You can definitely read them chronologically, but it is nice to binge one whole arc at a time, especially with all of the in-jokes and my ADHD.

Also, Terry Pratchett said the first two books aren't very good so if you are going to read chronologically, start with book 3 and go back later. You can't really go wrong with just picking one and starting though.
