OMG I don't believe it, finally people I can share my love of Terry Pratchett with!!
I was just going to start a topic when I noticed a small little innocent 'Ook' and KNEW it was going to be about all things Discworld!!
I've read all the Discworld novels bar his latest 'Making Money' which I got for Xmas. I just read his previous two over the last few days 'Thud!' and 'Wintersmith' which were both AMAZING! (I have them all in hardback edition).
Hard to pin down my favourite out of the 36, I really do love them all. However Rincewind and Commander Vimes have to be two of my favourite characters with Granny Weatherwax and Tiffany Aching coming close behind them.
What I like about his books (and the fact he is from Wiltshire, where I am from) is that they are so intricately detailed and so well thought out, everything is linked in some little way and how it all comes together in the last chapter each time is so fantastic!!
It's such a pity he has Alzheimer's, and I hope, like he says himself, that he does have time for a few more books (though I'll understand if he doesn't of course lol). He truly is a legend and no one else even comes close to his style and talent imho... *bows to TP's awesomeness*
