Terry Pratchett vs. Douglas Adams?
 
Man I don't even know. I've been rereading Hitchhiker's Guide recently but it's been like a decade since I read it and I never read much of Discworld.

No poll?

I say Pratchet

The only Hitchhiker book worth a **** is the first one

Pratchet has all kinds of funny clever stuff

There is in fact a poll. The thread goes up before the poll. I do not know why this happens but it does.

Coincidentally, I’m reading Men at Arms by Terry Pratchett right now. I was underwhelmed by the first book I read by him (Mort) but he’s really growing on me. That said, I still think I prefer Adams at this point.

I thought the thread was Patch Adams vs. Douglas Adams. Disappointed it's not.

OccultHawk 01-29-2019 02:58 PM

Oh I think I was pre-poll or something

I prefer Adams but I haven't read too much of the Discworld series tbh.

It's easy to like Adams more but come on, after the first couple Hitchhiker's books it starts to get depressing. I actually hated the last book cause it was so miserable.

It was crap writing

Compare their bibliographies

The "last" Hitchhiker's book written by someone else actually got laughs from me and felt better even if it was clearly there to give a better-feeling ending to the series.

The last Adams book didn't even have ****ing Zaphod! How can you end the series wondering where the **** Zaphod is for several hundred pages?!
