no one I know has regretted reading it.

No one I know personally has ever read Pratchett books.

I'm taking special care, Dune was ruined for me because of spoilers placed in reviews that were supposedly spoiler-free.

I'm reading Chainfire by Terry Goodkind. You should read whole Sword of Truth series, if you like fantasy books.

Rest of the books from series are:
P. Debt of Bones
1. Wizard’s First rule
2. Stone of Tears
3. Blood of the Fold
4. Temple of the Winds
5. Soul of the Fire
6. Faith of the Fallen
7. Pillars of Creation
8. Naked Empire
9. Chainfire
I read that, is Chainfire good? Haven't read that one yet....

OK so, ya like he said Sword of Truth...
Also: The Green Mile, Neeful Things, The Regulators (all Stephen King, Regulators is Richard Bachman, aka Stephen King) Net Force (Tom Clancy), The magic of Recluse (forget the author) and don't forget Twizzle the Wonder Bunny!!

I also finished it just a week ago, as my girlfriend bought it for me and urged to read it. It is a fine one, with an atmosphere you can cut with a machete. The language is very rich, and it's hard to believe the author wasn't an English native speaker.

In case there's someone unaware of it, this is the book Apocalypse Now! is loosely based on.
