Yeah, I read that one ages ago...never since, it's kinda for younger readers if I recall correctly. Try some of the Discworld series sometime, really good fantasy.

Since August of last year, I have read every Discworld book in order, up to The Last Continent.

I'm not obsessed
FUCK YOU! GET PUMPED!

I love Pratchett! The Discworld series was the first proper series of books I read!
Good times.

He's a legend.

Discworld is my absolute favourite series bar none.

I hope Pratchett manages at least one more book before the Alzheimers takes its toll.
#10
Hells yeah, Pratchett.

I actually haven't read any in a while. I have a copy of Fifth Elephant laying around unopened Also, the dog destroyed my copy of Colour of Magic

Yeah, the old sprawling covers were way better than these single image things they've got going now.

I used to love sitting looking at the cover and working out who all the characters were.

Meh... He makes the characters look much better. All the characters on the old covers look very similar, but it did fit with the overall Discworld thing much better, and they were usually more fun.

I have the whole set of Discworld books apart from making money... Pratchett's one of the best authors of our time. Gutted about his alzheimers.

Yep, Terry Pratchett is a brilliant writer, and the new adaptions on SKY were excellent.

Oh god, I hated that

But that's probably because I hate David Jason (excluding Dangermouse)
FUCK YOU! GET PUMPED!
#20
I like some of his stuff, Guards, Guards was absolute brilliance so was the last regiment. and The amazing maurice, that book changed my life as a twelve year old. Oh and the comic book one was pretty good. The alzheimer thing is a real shame, he is a good author, he has had a productive and fulfilling life atleast career wise.

Yes you can torrent it. I downloaded both parts in high quality...I REALLY Hate Sky One.
It was alright, although not as good as Hogfather. I think casting David Jason in Rincewind's position was a blunder, because everyone was expecting someone slightly younger...

He casted himself in that role.
And I wasn't expected younger, necessarily, just not fat.

Eric Idle would've been perfect, IMO

David Jason shouldn't have been rincewind.

Too old, too short, too fat.

No offense to the guy but he's nothing close to Rincewind physically. And he's never played that sort of character before.
#29
Davic Jason played Rincewind!!! What The ****!!!

thats the stupidist thing i have ever heard, he had already played a different character in Hogfather, surely that just confuses things and messes with the continuity of the story. All the little kids who get into Discworld through the adaptations will get really confused. That is just so stupid

I have the majority of his books.
But I've only read Monstrous Regiment, Night Watch and Strata. I need to start reading them in order, and I will over summer after my exams have finished.

I didn't watch the Colour of Magic, but I saw the adverts for it, and David Jason is not what I would have expected Rincewind to look like. He needed to be taller and thinner.

I used to read them 24/7 but Ive kinda gone off them recently...I think I read just about all of them.

Yeah, David Jason claims to be a fan of the series but if he was, surely he wouldn't agree to such stupid casting?

Pratchett is awesome but don´t forget that he wrote other books than the
Discworld "series" tho.

I have almost all of his books, every time I travel in England I pick up whatever books of his I find in the local Whsmith.


He's hilarious and writes awesome stories, by far one of my favorite writers. He makes me think of Douglas Adams, except as a kid he liked Lord Of the Rings instead of star wars.
