Terry Pratchett book.
Craig Cabell is only interested in airing his subjective views, which I do not agree with. CC uses a lot of words to tell about all the books he has read, which in my opinion does not relate to TP's books. I love Terry Pratchett's work for its universality, its politics and humanism, but found Mr. Cabell's book a tired and repetitive wander through the history of Science Fiction and Fantasy writing, diverting into his own favourites at intervals. He obviously sees himself as a sort of Rincewind and has no understanding at all of the complexity of the other truly great characters - Sam Vimes, Granny Weatherwax, etc.
Terry Pratchett is one of the most loved writers in the world. His first Discworld novel, The Colour of Magic, was released in 1983 and ever since then the series, with its whimsical heroes and fiendish foes, has delighted both young and old alike. In 2007 Pratchett announced that he had been diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease.
There is a Bruce Springsteen line in the song ‘Two Hearts’ (from the album The River) that says that people grow up to dream again. Perhaps another side to fantasy isn’t just the instruction of moral duties to children, it is the reminder to adults to remember those teachings and pass them on to the younger generation themselves. Writing for Children. This is the story of Pratchett's life and work. Craig Cabell is the author of The Doctor Who's Who,Ian Fleming's Secret War,Ian Rankin and Inspector Rebus, and Snipers: Profiles of the World's Deadliest Killers. Country of Publication. He has courageously faced the disease head-on, equalling the determination of his characters in his vivid and satirical novels.
