That is a lovely story and reminds me of my younger days when I was first introduced to the Pratchett.
I was bought the Carpet People and loved it so much that I must have read it ten times (I have a vague recollection of trying to write a sequel as a ten year old lad!
). I soon moved on to Truckers, Diggers and Wings which was the most epic series I had read as a child!
Here I stopped reading Terry for a few years until my mum bought me two books to read on a holiday to Portugal. Those two books were Colour of Magic and Pyramids.
I read the line, “He was the sort of person who stood on mountaintops during thunderstorms in wet copper armour shouting "All the Gods are bastards." and was have been hooked on the Discworld novels since.
“You can't trample infidels when you're a tortoise. I mean, all you could do is give them a meaningful look.”
