Terry Pratchett and Jasper Fforde do not write the same way, but they do interpret the world similarly.
The basic element of stories, which you can only detect by watching the way all the others behave . . .
When I read the description for this, "A young boy travels across Australia with his father," I was expecting something along the lines of Crocodile Dundee.
That description didn't continue, as IMDb does, with "who's wanted by the law for committing a violent crime."
This was an entirely different story.
Yesterday I saw Jasper Fforde again and he said lots of wonderful, interesting things to just twenty-or-so of us. He said we create in our own image and communicate with stories and shouldn't be afraid of the unexpected, rather we should embrace it.
The BBC's 'Atlantis' is Merlin/A Knight's Tale. The similarities are . . . everywhere. I was going to write something about all that, but then this episode came along.
I already like Sarah Parish, especially as a baddie, but she's not completely evil and that is interesting.
