Y os recomiendo mucho Going Postal.
Ha destacar cómo ha terminado su cuenta de Twitter, con THE END (muy apropiado).
Y una frase suya dedicada a Terry: ‘DON’T THINK OF IT AS DYING’, said Death. ‘JUST THINK OF IT AS LEAVING EARLY TO AVOID THE RUSH‘
El mundo es un sitio más triste sin él.
Yesterday posted some sad news on our Facebook page : Terry Pratchett had died . Really sad, as I’ve spent hours of laughter reading his books.
Terry Pratchett (SIR from 1998) is a British auther, creator of the Discworld saga. A world held by four elephants riding on top of a giant turtle floating in space. From this fantasy world, full of magic and strange creatures, que laughs with irony and a typicall English sense of humour, of many of the problems we suffer in our modern days.You can get an idea of his huour in his quotes.
Books like Mort, ¡Guardias! ¡Guardias!, Wyrd Sisters, Night Watch o Going Postal are a MUST read. Light to read, but they leave you with a smile on your face and musing about whatever topic the auther wanted you to thing about.
¿Why use fantasy? You can see his explanation here:
If you prefer audiobooks (I recommend reading the books) here you have loads of them.
Discworld was also taken to videogames, TV series and films. So for those who prefer to watch a movie I leave some of them here:
The Colour of Magic:
And I recommend Going Postal.
Do you know what their last post on his Twitter account was yesterday? : THE END (very fitting for him :-D).
And one of Terry’s phrases dedicated to him from us: ‘DON’T THINK OF IT AS DYING’, said Death. ‘JUST THINK OF IT AS LEAVING EARLY TO AVOID THE RUSH‘
The world’s a sadder place without him.
