The Colour of Magic is Terry Pratchett's maiden voyage through the bizarre land of Discworld. His entertaining and witty series has grown to more than 20 books, and this is where it all starts--with the tourist Twoflower and his hapless wizard guide, Rincewind ("All wizards get like that... it's the quicksilver fumes. Rots their brains. Mushrooms, too."). Pratchett spoofs fantasy clichés--and everything else he can think of--while marshalling a profusion of characters through a madcap adventure. The Colour of Magic is followed by The Light Fantastic. --Blaise Selby, Amazon.com --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
"'One of the best and funniest English authors alive'" (Independent)
"In the tradition of classic British humour...Incidentally informative about everything from quantum physics to the behaviour of camels. He may parody history and myth, but at the same time he resuscitates and animates them." (Guardian)

I love this light hearted fantasy novel, I am reading this series in Publication order, as I have noticed many people saying that they did not start with Publication Order and now are going back to the beginning, another benefit of starting at the beginning is that you will meet the characters again, in later years.
The characters, especially Cohen, provide some genuine laugh out loud moments.
I just wish I got into discworld sooner!!
