i've only read a few books(for fun).

-Harry Potter(all)
-Ender's Game(I think I read three in the series, dont remember which ones tho)
-Lord of the Rings: The hobbit Prequel. Kinda boring...But the movies rocked tho

Why do people dislike Harry Potter books? It's got an interesting plot line, Rowling presents a great unique idea and her novels truly show her creativity. People think cause there's magic and no violence that it's childish and therefore it's stupid :roll: (and this wasn't directed at you mitth, tho I would like to here your reasoning on why you cant stand harry potter :) )

Douglas Adams vs Terry Pratchett

Post by Halifax » Thu Apr 28, 2005 6:43 am

i dont know how many books adams has written but i know pratchett has more than 20. maybe 30. i do find adams to be funny, but his humor seems set up, squeezed out rather than natural. hes great at those little non-sequiters and so is terry pratchett. but pratchett's humor depends more on his characters, not the situation.
and frankly, pratchetts stories are better.
final judgement:
pratchett 9
adams 7
jordan 10
(out of 10)
