How exited were you when you heard that the blurbing book club book would be going postal!!?!?!?!!? OMJB!!!!
Its not the bvest of his books but still hes sooo great!!!!
Just want to see if any of you agree
Also, has anyone ever read Good Omens? (if so how thrilled were you to know that Neil Gaimon and Terry Pratchett collaborated!!!!(I LOVE them both!!!!)
I loved it but i want to hear more thaughts...
I have now seen the Hogfather, and have to agree it was pretty good. However, I have to ask, how do Pratchett fans generally feel about turning his books into films? I for one have mixed feelings, as his books dealing with the discworld witches are my FAVOURITE fantasy books, and Granny Weatherwax may be closer to my heart than just about any fantasy character. I have a very SPECIFIC image of what she would be like, and would be so scared of being dissapointed in a film version of one of his books. I would almost rather not see them... *Ergh*
When it comes to the movies (Live action or animated) I think a lot of fans are forgiving of characters on screen - esp. those in Europe where there are numerous stage adaptations. I think that if you get the "tone" right you can overlook the characters appearance. That would be MOST true with The Colour of Magic movie. Rincewind is played by the same actor that played Albert. I've always pictured Rincewind kinda like Eric Idle from Monty Python days. BUT if he captures the "spirit" of Rincewind- it's all good!
But to answer the official question:
I adore Pratchett, Gaiman and all they have done.
I even read the Science of Discworld books(1,2, and 3!) that Pratchett wrote with Ian Stewart and Jack Cohen. Three of the best science books ever!
