Hot Air: That Guardian Article on Terry Pratchett

  1. I haven’t read the original article, but I agree with you about accepting all works as literature. When I first started reading I used to be embarrassed by what I like, but I like what I like. You like what you like. In the end, all that really matters is that you’re reading, which is great! (Even if reading isn’t your thing, that’s cool. I may look at you like you’re crazy, but forcing someone else to read is not going to do anything for me.)

  2. Totally agree. It would be fine if he had read Pratchett and didn’t like him. I would have strongly disagreed but would have respected his opinion. However criticizing and dismissing him without reading any of the books is pretty unacceptable and also really lazy journalism.


      1. Freedom of the press/expression. Though I think he sounds like a moron, he has the freedom to sound like a moron. And his views aren’t necessarily that of the publication. But, to deny him the right to say it is an even worse offense.
