One of the few Pratchett books I actually can't get through. I wasn't really trying though. You do have to remember, any copy of that book you get these days has been heavily edited by the adult Pratchett, but I guess kudos to him for getting published at the age of 17 (as apposed to the guy who wrote Eragon, who's parents had a publishing house or some such).

Not as a rule, but HP just happens to be a series of books I enjoy reading. There are a good few hundred movies I've seen that are based on books I've never read.
