Absolutely! Discworld novels are always fun to revisit. Much like your favorite Star Trek or Dr. Who episodes. The funny parts become funnier, the action anticipated eagerly, the characters richer. Not to mention cameos by discworld favorites.
Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams for its humor and pacing.
Dimension of Miracles by Robert Sheckley for dry wit and bumbling lead characters
Terry Pratchett classics, Colour of Magic, Equal Rites and Going Postal just to name a few due to the roller coaster pace, gripping adventure and superb dialog.
In a particular scene, the Auditors take human form. Shortly after, we see how they instantly start to squabble over silly things like; who's name is more superior (they are named for colors) and who was born first (they assumed form at almost the same exact time). I admit to outbursts of laughter as they settled in to their bodies. By settle in, I mean they steadily became more petty and violent as the story unfolds.
I also enjoyed Deaths meeting with War. The entire scene is hilarious. And anything with the infant Abbot.
The only thing I can think of as particularly moving was when Lobsang finds out he is also Jeremy. The cameo by Nanny Og was nice.
It's very nice to be thoroughly entertained at breakneck pace. Discworld always provides beloved characters and enough end of world peril to keep me finding excuses to be swept away.
