I wiped out this topic yesterday and am reviving it now. Mainly because I neglected to include The Scholars Tale.

I thought The Scholars Tale was was touching, The Poets complex and beautiful--but the romantic in me had to pick the Consuls something about dolphins, the sea and the lightyears altered loveaffair touched the romantic in me--

So now your options are, of course:
The Priests Tale
The Soldiers Tale
The Poets Tale
The Detectives Tale
The Scholars Tale
The Consuls Tale

And now Danlo looked in that direction, too. He remembered that snowy owls mate in the darkest part of deep winter, and so along with this beautiful white bird perched in a tree a hundred feet away, he turned to face the sea as he watched and waited.

Ahira, Ahira, he called out silently to the sky. Ahira, Ahira

And all of the tales become beautifully knitted together in the Endymion books.
It's hard to choose just one -- different elements in each tale appeal to me. The romantic love, as you mentioned, in the counsel's tale, the bad*ss buttkicking in the soldier's tale, the love of a parent for a child in the scholar's tale...and the other three are particularly important for the second half of the series in the Endymion books (but I will not give out spoilers here!) Ankh-Morpork people considered that spelling was a sort of optional extra. They believed in it the same way they believed in punctuation; it didn't matter where you put it, so long as it was there.~Terry Pratchett<i>Edited by: Duchess of Malfi  at: 7/29/03 10:39 pm

If I had to choose, I'd pick the Consul's tale. The dolphins and the relativity love story.

Although the Soldiers and Scholars tales are right there with it. <i>Edited by: Duchess of Malfi  at: 7/29/03 10:41 pm

My favorite is the priest tale, you CANNOT stop reading it until it's over, and then you CANNOT stop thinking about the irony the whole story is. I also loved at first Sol's Wientraub an the consul ones, they made me cry and most of all, think.
I must confess at first I bored a bit with the other three, but I ended up loving them as well at my second lecture of the book. <i></i>

OK - brought back the poll after the big board move, though I have not figured out how to bring back the prior results.

I loved them all, but had to choose the Priest's tale. I found it so haunting. And I felt cheated in the first book when
