About Pratchett. His sense of humour leaves me with the belief he is one of the funniest writers that was. Almost every page makes me laugh at something. He has the human nature of things completely. Pompousness, pride, greed, beliefs, preconceptions and he just rips them all. Utterly brilliant.

Get a binge of Yule ale, roasted boar and some proper axes and we will ALL be happy again!

I read Lud-in-the-mist on Neil Gaiman's recommendation and it was excellent
I don't care about the rules.

Crime & Punishment; a convict storey.
Its a reproduction of the only known and surviving journal kept by a convict. Ward; the fellow who kept the journal seems [or should I say 'seemed'] to suffer from the same sort of entitlement and victim blaming seen so much on modern day police shows. Whenever he does something horrible its 'society's' fault.
Ward was nothing more than a waste of skin. Yet without him this insight into convict life wouldn't exist.

Just finished Eric/Faust. Was a short story that seemed to just end in the middle of a story. Was very funny until I ran out of story and book. Very weird.
Now to find troll bridge.
