Terry Patchett - Who is the best character?

Discussion in 'The Book Club' started by mac_uk, May 27, 2008.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Commander Sir Samuel Vimes

  2. Lord Vetinari

  3. Cpl St.John De Nobbes

  4. Capt Carrot

  5. Sgt Angua

  6. Archancellor Ridcully

  7. The Librarian

  8. Granny Weatherwax

  9. Nanny Ogg

  10. CMOT Dibbler

  1. Just building on the other Pratchett thread I was curious to know which of Pratchetts characters every one liked.
    They are almost all very well written but which ones do you go straight out to buy a book for when you know that they will be in it? Which one do you always root for or feel most empathy with?
  2. I find the there is a lot to like about the Lord. I also like CMOT and granny and have fantasies about Angua.

    The Luggage, Vetinari or any of the Watch for various reasons.
  4. Death and his horse Binky
  5. I would have put more options on but there was a limit
  6. Cpl Nobby or any of the Watch.
  7. Death kicks ass. He has been my favourite since I read Mort about 20-odd years ago.
  8. My choice would be Commander Vimes, though I do like the Nac Mac Feegle 8)
  9. Gaspode..... As I mentioned in the other thread, I can't wait to get a scruffy mongrel so I can call him Gaspode.
  10. From that list, probably the Librarian. Overall though, Death comes out top by a country mile.


  11. NacMacFeegle rock, however it's a tie for me between Vetinari and Vimes/

    Tough question. Voted for Vimes. The tie breaker was "the only thing that depressed him more than his own cynicism was that it never turned out to be enough".

    Although Vetinari is just plain cool. I want to BE Vetinari.

    And Cpl Nobby Nobbs is brilliant. And Foul ole Ron. And Gaspode the wonder dog.

    Bugger. Like nearly all of his characters.

    What was the name of the vampire photographer in Going Postal that was allergic to flash photography again?
  14. Otto Criek I think
  15. Nanny Ogg is the best character I think she is based on my Mum
