Hey guys, I'm new here and new to reading in general really! I've always found it hard to concentrate when reading a book but i'd like to try again! I went to Waterstones a few weeks a go and decided to purchase 2 books, one was 'The Gospel of Loki' and the other 'The Shepherds Crown' by Terry Pratchett. I've always been really interested in the fantasy genre: D&D, Warhammer, Warcraft etc and i've heard good things about Terry Pratchett books. My main question is, Do I need to read other Pratchett books before reading this one? I know this is the last book he wrote before passing. I'm worried i'll be introduced to many characters who i wont know making the book harder to understand/read. If anyone has any input, it would be great to hear from you! Thanks
