The Great Terry Pratchett

So yesterday we lost yet another great man from geekdom. He was talented, brave in the face of adversity and an example to us all, with a wonderful sense of humour.

RIP Sir Terry - May you dance with DEATH and have a cracking good time.

With his iconic hat, beard and open smile he was such a well known face and his books and spirit will live on for generations to come.

I remember the first time I ever read one of his books and it's still my favourite: Pyramids. I know not many other people feel the same way, but I couldn't put it down and it was absolutely wonderful as I read page after page. His sense of humour was hilarious and very sophisticated in so many ways. I think I shall pull the book out soon and read it again and laugh some more at wine that gives you a hangover before you drink it and an assassin who ends up a deity.

My favourite character from his books has to be DEATH (and Binky). He's just awesome.

What is your favourite Pratchett novel and which is your favourite character?

  1. A talent and kind spirit who will be sorely missed :(

    Well, you know I agree with you about Pyramids - best ever! :) Although Mort and Wyrd Sisters come close too.

    DEATH is my favourite character too, but I have lots of runners up - The Luggage, Mort, Granny Weatherwax.
