It's true, it's easier to understand the characters if you
read each set in order. The Rincewind books are among my
least favorite, I have to say, but then the series started
with Rincewind in the Colour of Magic, so perhaps I'm
prejudiced by my anti-preference for the earlier books.
OTOH, the early witch books are great, esp Wyrd Sisters. I
guess I just prefer Shakespearean satire over fantasy
adventure satire. (The C of M was written to specifically
make fun of stuff like Conan, et al.)

Yes! It is! Glad you found some you can enjoy.
