    I figured you'd like it. Its amazing, Terry hardly needed to do more than writing about people being capable of critical, independent thought and its the most refreshing thing ever. It helps that I'm a massive science nerd too, but too often fiction just goes for an extreme of "X (mostly Science) is untrustworthy/bad!!!"
    Only thing I remember bugging me is the anti-romantic ending, but thats just due to my own ingrained sappy preferene for the "happily ever after!" cliche. :-P

    Pretty sure those were lost with the death of imageshack. Sorry.

    Dodger took me an age to finish. The climax was, beyond any other Pratchett novel, a serious case of "What? That was it?" Nation is, fortunately, much better. I still need to get Johnny and the bomb; I found "...and the dead" less interesting than "only you can save mankind", so I've never been that compelled to track it down.

    At the moment I'm rereading Lords and Ladies, and having a great time; Weatherwax is great, Ridcully is great,the Alien-Elves are fine antagonists, and putting it all together is pretty great

    Well, in the comics they got married and stayed married till the universe rebooted, and that was pretty strong. The Lois and Clark tv show was nothing BUT the romance, but it was pretty stupid all around. The original movies do pretty well with it.

    There's another straight to DVD film, Mystery of the Batwoman, but everyone just pretends that didn't happen.

    There's also Static Shock and the Zeta Project, both of which had horrible animation in their first seasons, but are connected. Wait on Zeta till you're a bit into Batman Beyond though, it has a backdoor pilot in there and sets it up.

    I've been reading this mans work for 15 years now...and I used to joke that I could only ever catch up to his output when he stopped writing or died.
    And at 66 damn years old, here we are. I kept holding out hope that some medical development would swoop in and improve matters; not so he could write more novels (though I don't think he could stop himself as long as he lived), but because watching someones mind slip away is a terrifying tragedy to behold.

    Fuck Alzheimers.

    RIP Terry. You were an inspiration. I can only hope he died at least somewhat on his own terms.

    Jesus, I don't think I could ever have the patience for that
    My pace of reading is so slow, I've long since reailized that the only way I can ever catch up to Pratchett is when he quits writing altogether, or dies.
    My to-read list includes
    I shall wear midnight
    Raising Steam
    Science of Discworld IV
    Johnny and the Bomb
    Nanny Oggs cookbook
    Wheres my cow
    World of poo
    Long Earth 1-3

    in whatever order I can manage

    Right now I'm chewing through the Discworld Folklore compendium, and have just started the Long Earth, which seems like a good read- at the very least, the concept is great. Whats next for you? Nation?

    I really liked the Bromeliad; I think its safe to say that critical thought and the questioning of authority and tradition are staples of Pratchetts themes. Thats probably why his writing clicked so well with me- though its equally possible that the writing helped shape my convictions in the first place.

    I've done some Discworld rereading myself the last year, and while Reaper Man still charms my pants off, I'm honestly amazed that Soul Music is what hooked me to the series. I mean, its not bad- but theres really not that much going on in it. I also read Making Money for the first time, and while again perfectly fine, I find myself yearning for the older writing style. Climaxes have never exactly shown up early in Discworld novels, but here I just felt it kind of petered out. Combined with the more...domesticated feel of latter Discworld, as opposed to the more outrageous nature of the earlier books (dimension warping pyramids!), it just didn't grab me as much.
