Terry Pratchett interview at SFX and funny comment on Alice in Wonderland

This interview of Terry Pratchett at SFX is quite amusing, especially his comments about Alice in Wonderland. I have to agree with him, it is quite a hard read. I read it about a year ago and struggled with it.

Pratchett says:

“It really is the most awful book and I think it just keeps going because there’s some kind of momentum that keeps it trundling on. Does anyone ever read Alice in Wonderland these days? Really, really read it? Somehow society decides that some titles stay in print, even though they’re pretty awful and nobody reads them anymore. I’m sorry but I hated the book. I thought it was god-awful, creepy Victorian humour.”
