Look what happens if we plot the Anthropomorphic Personifications in The Colour Of Magic: we get a very scary #DataViz:
It really looks like 2 ghosts are there!! =)
In The Colour of Magic DEATH appears 35% of time compared to other antropomorphic personifications like Fate with only 16%? THAT makes you wonder…
The Lady beats Fate in the game they were playing and even in stats!
2% up for the Lady! Hooray!
Still, DEATH WHO ALWAYS SPEAK IN CAPITALS, besides being my favourite character in Discworld, is the winner!!
Don’t forget to leave a comment… what would you like to see in a data viz?
Did you know that Rincewind is mentioned twice as much as Twoflower in Sir Terry Pratchett’s “Colour of Magic”?
See for yourself… Death is only mentioned 2.5% and the brilliant sapient-wood made Luggage is only mentioned 2.4% of the time…
Size of the box represents the number of time each Character, Place, etc is mentioned in the book:
Did you know that in Colour of Magic, Rincewind ‘said’ something 26% of the time?
But only ‘looked’ 6% of the time, and ‘had’ 3%?
“…and the rest” you say? … well, after the analysis, you can see it for yourself!
Another way of visualising the data (or if you want to see each verb):
