Lost In Translation

Whenever possible I read a book in its original language. That is either english or german. The other day though I started to read an older Terry Pratchett book in a german translation and even though I’m not at all familiar with Terry Pratchett’s work and style, I can feel how it has lost so much. I get a sense how it should be, but simply isn’t.

Inevetibably ordered a used hardcopy of the book just now and will continue it later.
