  • Music:

One of the great truths

For those who like the bits from the "Alatriste" novels that I quote here when I'm telling you how good they are (no word on volume 4 or a DVD release yet, but I'm watching ...), something a little different but as thought provoking as anything Pérez-Reverte ever wrote. libwitch kindly did the typing, so honour the labour of her fingers and click here to read one of Terry Pratchett's best bits what makes humans "human".

This is why I can re-read Pratchett until my copies of his books fall apart (and then I'll replace every one) ... the humour is just the vehicle for some very deep thoughts.
