I love all Terry Pratchett's characters, but especially Granny Weatherwax.


She's pretty cool, but Rincewind is my favourite.

I'm reading Atlas Shrugged now based on the accolades bestowed upon it in this thread. Don't think I've read anything nearly as thick before (i.e. many pages). Isn't there a movie out yet? - they've had like 53 years ...

Mintaka

 

Starting page 460 of 1078 today.... ( in case anyone cares Tongue ) My aim is to beat the movie release date that cygost linked to.

I had no idea what mine were at first but I'll venture some choices:

Trillian - Hitchikers guide to the galaxy - D. Adams

Joshua Calvert - The Night's Dawn trilogy - Peter Hamilton (Not because he's a womanizer, but just because he has really cool adventures)

But I think my favourite is Dexter Morgan.

So... I did not deliberate long on this one. For the last few years my reading time has been hijacked (sadly) by text books.

However, I LOVE the Mad Hatter from Alice in Wonderland. Because, according to society, I am also a bit mad...

Who knew?

not a bad list, alloytoo  Wink 

I seem to have left fantasy and science fiction reading behind a little. Something which I thought would never happen!  Embarrassed

Sorry I've been out of touch Superman.
Yes I did write a novel classified as Sci Fi some 206000 words of it and titled "Moses was a Liar". It's got some objectivism philosophies in it. Sequel is at a 50% stage at the moment but I'm sukkeling somewhat with it.

Great stuff, I will have to look into your book this weekend.
Interesting seems that you did not intend it to be classified as Sci Fi.
Does not matter, it is just amazing that a South African will include some Objectivism in his book.
