I first found him when I was 10, I detailed my early Pratchett/Gaiman discovery in this long winded review of Ocean At the End of The Lane.
I stopped reading Pratchett around The Truth. I felt the satire had become more serious, the jokes were being removed and I just felt all Pratchetted out. I’d say it took a good 8 years for me to get back into his stuff, but when I did I read every book in order like a massive geek.
When he came and spoke to me I was a bit freaked out, but I had the early stages of puberty flying through me and I was more terrified of the fact he had a fully grown 17 year old woman with him.
