One thing I should add about Terry Pratchett is that he writes so, so well that reading him is like watching a movie. I’ve never read someone that had such a great command of the English language. When he wants to be serious and deep, he is, and when he wants to be really funny, he is. Often he’ll write a sentence that’s funny on three different levels… the obvious meaning, the hidden meaning, and the hidden hidden meaning.
I’ve always thought there were some interesting parallels between Unseen University and Hogwarts. Of course, Discworld was out before Harry Potter was.
The Watch is really awesome, but I have a hard time choosing a favorite. “Surely Bjorn Stronginthearm is my uncle.” Whether it’s the Watch, Tepic, or The Band With Rocks In, I like them all.
