Wrinkles BS: Terry Prattchet and folkies (110* d) RE: BS: Terry Prattchet and folkies 14 Feb 05

Hi Pogo ;-) and all other "reading alouders",

Once, when my adult son was ill and couldn't focus his eyes without getting a headache, and was getting very board with radio and CDs, I began reading aloud a Diskworld book to him. It began a familly tradition and now we always have one on the go!

I love reading them aloud too, both because I've a little skill at accents and voices (I love putting "character" into the Characters) and the "on the fly" editing one has to do to turn jokes that work in written form into something that works verbally! It's really great fun.

I've found that often descriptions of situations in Prattchet, which only raise amusement when read to ones self, become belly shaking howlers when read aloud! I've found myself spluttering through laughter, trying to actually say out loud what's written.
