Sent From My Fingers To Your Face.....
I'd have to check, but didn't both Moist Von Lipwig and Otto Chriek, come from Uberwald? Otto especially makes me laugh, his labour of love reducing him to a pile of ashes whenever he takes a picture.
I read 'Snuff' at the weekend and it was excellent! A new Discworld book is one of those rare joys, to be savoured and enjoyed.
Always nice to meet fellow fans.
That it is, I am hard pressed to say which character is my favorite. In all actuality I think Twoflower is probably in a good race with the bursar... the vampires are great, which book is it that has the witches and the vampires are trying to be more human, granny weatherwax is missing? I use to hate granny stories that one though made me love her and her attitude. Favorite books though out of what I have read are of course color of magic, small gods, the fifth continent and moving pictures. All vampires come from uberwald, still not sure if that's the territory of klatch or not, wasn't twoflower from there as well?
Now, if you like Pratchett do you like Douglas Adams as well?
Twoflower was from the Counterweight Continent.
Uberworld is near the hub with the ramtops, hence the links with the Witches.
Klatch (known for their coffee that makes you knurd) is by the coast.
Somewhere I have a map of Ankh-morpork, The Discworld, and I think even Death's domain.
Sniff... I love you guys..... LOL, it is so nice to see fans of Pratchett. So my geography is a bit off I admit, I remember the days when there were no maps of discworld... oh and death of rats is another of my favorites. Squeak? Wish I had Rincewind's luggage... or ability to evade death, love the fact his hourglass has curves and even goes back up before going down again... so awesome.
HHGTTG books are killer, BBC TV series is killer, Radio series is killer, the movie with Mos Def as Ford Prefect.... utter rubbish
Death of Rats is one of my favs too.
Sir Terry is such a nice bloke, he came to Portsmouth once in the mid 90s for a book signing. There were so many people to see him that when the bookshop closed for the day he just stood outside so that he could get to everyone.
As for the HHGTTG film, I enjoyed it, but I agree the casting was wrong in so many ways, and changing the narrator's lines to be more PC was wrong.
The little touches I liked, such as the original Marvin and Simon Jones, and of course Douglas at the end. People forget it was mostly his script.
