There are surprisingly few official TV and film adaptations of Terry Pratchett’s Discworld series of novels. Especially considering how many books he wrote. And frankly, just how popular they all are.
In the year 2000, when I was nine years old, my mother read the first Harry Potter book for me and my younger sister over the course of several nights.
After she had finished, I was still so entranced by the world which had been presented to me that I reread it several times on my own.
While I did not understand it at the time,
what I love about ‘Harry Potter’ is that they are mystery-novels disguised as fantasy.
