1.Do you think Terry's books are associated with his personal life? If yes, please explain.
2.Do you think Terry differs from other fantasy writers? If yes, please tell why do you think so.
3.Why did you start reading Terry's books?
4.Do you like Terry's books? If yes, please explain.
5.Which things are characteristic to Terry's creation?
6.Which are your favorite books? Why so?

Hi merylyn619! Are you from Estonia by the way?

I suspect you are more likely to get a response to your questions if you get to know us first and we get to know you. I know that I personally am more likely to spend time answering questions if I know someone than if a total stranger asks my opinion.

Your questions come across as: 'do my homework for me'. How about telling us more about the project you are doing and why you have chosen Terry Pratchett and Discworld for your project.

I hope you don't think I am being unfriendly, but put yourself in my place. Why would I want to spend time typing out a load of answers to questions from someone who does even introduce themselves?

I'm suffering from what is known in medical circles as "Meerkat's R". :(

This causes sufferers to either put the "R" in the wrong part of the word (eg; prot), or miss it out totally. :(

The doctor told me I was a ight pick! :lol:
