Big cheer to the (unnamed) reporter asking Grunny why there's no gay character on the show and if there should be one...

[Error: unknown template qotd]Wow, that's practically impossible. I guess I'll go with something a little unusual and say 'Making History' by Stephen Fry. I've picked it because it's probably the widest appeal of all my favourite books. It's science fiction, moral discussion, sexual awakening, history and history being altered, love story. I think there's pretty much something for everyone there unlike a lot of my other favourites :)

My second choice would be 'Thud' by Terry Pratchett. It only doesn't win because you really have to be a long term reader of his books to  appreciate the answer to a question that's been bubbling along almost since the first book. But even if you don't there's a brilliant examination of modern politics and the involvement of religious extremism, the murder mystery, fantastic exploration of Vimes psychology (I'm a Vimes girl all the way, I make no apology), and some laugh out loud funny moments. The sense of cautious optimism as the trolls and the dwarfs possibly putting aside generations of war and antagonism is the capper.
