I read a book, still do, because I enjoy(ed) reading it & the story line appealed to me. I don't care what people thought was the meaning of such & such passage. To me a book is a nice way to spend a few hours in another World. Other Sci-fi/fantasy authors but especially TP's books.

Would you mind telling me the source for this one, please? I am doing a research on Pratchett and I have read this somewhere but can't recall the proper source.
"If I recall correctly, Sir Terry has said that when he writes specifically for children, he can be clearer about the big issues - life, death, belief, love - because children don't object. It's the adults who want it all covered up with business and petty office politics, or words to similar effect."
