  The Chatter Box : Blathering On
Terry Pratchett, Anyone? by notquitenglish on 17 May 2003 7:30am
An official Blathering-On...
but I have recently become enamoured of the books of Terry Pratchett. He's hysterical! The blurbs on the cover say he's done for fantasy what Douglas Adams did for Sci-Fi, which I agree with, but I still love Douglas better because he's my first and only....or almost only.... and also that Pratchett's plots are like Monty Python only extended, which is also true, to a point. Anyway, the wizards are my favourite characters... and Sam Vimes, and Vetinari, I guess... and I just wanted to see if anyone else liked him, and reccomend him if you don't! Cheers. I am in a ridiculously good mood. I don't know why.

The City Watch Books...sheer classics, every single one of them. Who could not like Captain Carrot?

yeah, terry pratchett is great, discworld always makes me laugh. a couple other good comic fantasy authors are piers anthony (the xanth series) and robert asprin (another fine myth, and all the other books about aahz and skeeve). i like adams, too - i just finished re-re-reading hitchiker's guide to the galaxy. come to think of it, i like a lot of books... but to even begin it would take up three pages!!

Okay, then, how about Peter S. Beagle?
Wish somebody'd make a good movie of the Last Unicorn...

sounds familiar, i think i might have read it a looooong time ago...the only really good movies i have seen made from books are the chronicles of narnia movies and, more recently, harry potter is pretty good. the lord of the rings movies(in my opinion) are good for what they are, but very dissapointing - not at all true to the story.

I used to read a lot of Terry Pratchett, a lot of the books sit on my shelf at the moment, he is very funny. But, nowdays i tend to read different things.
