English. It's amazing enough that we got the book one week earlier than fucking England, if we'd had the time to translate it too it'd been a miracle.

A bullshit miracle though, since Pratchett is at his very finest when in English.

I've tried reading Pratchett before. He's too unfocused IMO.

But I find that to be part of why he's so brilliant. The things he says, the things he comments on, the little details he leaves in, the not-always-straight-forward-description-of-what's-going-on-for-comedic-or-dramatic-effect, they are all part in what makes him have the most distinct writing style of any and all authors I've ever read.

I'd read Guards! Guards! and Men At Arms. Because they have the best characters.

Other than Snatch and Lock Stock? Not really. Swordfish was pretty good, ignore the hacking bullshit. I need more clever crime movies. I'mma check out Reservoir Dogs I think.

Oh man, I wish I'd watch more movies. I really feel like I'm falling behind on the whole "watching good movies" business. All I'm doing nowadays is just watching marathons of Firefly and It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia while playing video games.

I MUST WATCH MORE FILMS.

I gotta get into the mood. Imma watch some Johnnie To films. Muthafucka knows how to make good action films.

Oh man, Always Sunny is addictive. I've noticed that people who watch that show a lot start to talk like they do in the show. I know a guy who speaks like Mac a lot of the time.

Sunny is probably the best show on TV today. I used to think it was simply good, but for every season the characters just get more and more insane. Eventually, Dennis is a sociopath rapist, Frank is a disgusting and selfish pig, Charlie is an illiterate retard with anger issues, Mac is a fatass with even more anger issues and a belief that he's actually buff, and Dee is a screeching megabitch who only cares about herself.

Compare this to how in the first season, Dennis was a playboy, Mac was a brawny dude, Charlie was just a little bit weird, Dee was just a woman in the background, and then in the second season Frank was a businessman with shady morals, and you can see that this is good

I did buy it. I just didn't buy it for myself. Could only afford one copy, and so I bought it for my girlfriend, who was staying the weekend at my place. She's a much bigger Pratchett fan than me

Back on topic, I really need to read those City Watch books don't I? I've only read the first four books so far and that one where they build a medieval dragon-powered space ship to fly around the entire disc and land ontop of the the Gods' mountain.

The City Watch books are definitely his best ones. You can start with any of them, really. Pratchett is good at reintroducing characters without making it tedious. Men At Arms is definitely the best one, but Guards! Guards! is a damn good start

Nah, it's only about Vimes. He goes on a vacation and has to solve a bunch of murders

The things he says, the things he comments on, the little details he leaves in, the not-always-straight-forward-description-of-what's-going-on-for-comedic-or-dramatic-effect, they are all part in what makes him have the most distinct writing style of any and all authors I've ever read.

QFT

Reading the books gives you the feeling of a living, breathing world rather than a story

That sounds like bullsh*t blurb-banter but what I mean is that rather than it being a very evocative world in which a story is taking place it is, in fact, just a world. The bits you are reading are the end results of a thousand different cause-to-effect coincidences and happenstances that bring about occurances in our world as well

My favorite character so far (And possibly forever) is Rincewind.

Everything about him just strikes a chord with me. Also, he's a reverse badass. He can run his way out of any situation.

Wait, what the flying fuck?
I thought Pratchett's brain was all filled with rat shit and bits of melon now? He's still writing?

I shall buy.
