But would you like to like she was when she was young I wonder!!! My fave was Carrot but then Sam Vimes eclipsed him but for laugh out louad it's Moist Von Lipwig from Going Postal and soon to be in the new one! Making Money.
I like Rincewind, he's not my fave, but I love it that he's such a coward. I think Twoflower is a great character, but despite having a great love for Granny Weatherwax and Death, I think Vimes just manages to beat them all.
Love Granny, but with the growth of the Lancre coven it's hard to see how a coherent book could be added to the witches story arc. Rincewind is a bit bland of himself but is a wonderful in to the oddities of academia, Ridcully in particular tickles my funny bone The Night Watch was a brilliant way to examine the practicalities of a city with legitimate theft and assassination as well as introducing Vimes and Carrot two hilarious characters it allowed for a more in-depth look at Vetenari which has been /instructive/. The new story arcs though, getting in to the more prosaic aspects of government offers less in the way of justifiable oddities. What after Raising Taxes ? An examination of the Dept. of Agriculture and the great catterpillar out break on the Sto-Latt plain? I feel the series is in danger of loosing it's fantastic elements entirely and becoming a manual for the establishment of modern western government in a fuedal medieval society, not that there aren't parts of the world that could do with such a manual.
Dawn French would be very good as Nanny Ogg, but I think that Miriam Margolies would probably be marginally better for "cackle-value". I think Julia Swahalia (Ab Fab's Saffie) would do very well for Magrat, but for Granny Weatherwax, I can't see that anyone would be able to beat Dame Maggie Smith...
i love Gaspode The Wonder Dog with his amusingly inside-out ear and his licky end. also I thought Miss Treason was a terrific character, even though I love Granny's withering cynicism. Leonard of Quirm is a favourite. thought what's his -ing name from The Truth was hilarious, "brings a -ing tear to the eye". i also enjoy the relationship between Vimes and Vetinari. the bit where they're discussing a possible person to run the watch while Vimes is away... an image of Nobby Nobbs rose up between them... ha ha. also love the idea of the Igors. and what's most great about Pratchett is that he can get his reader to feel things for luggage and walking flower pots that most authors can't do with humans.
