Product description

Amazon Review

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

I really liked the Rincewind and Twoflower , not to forget the luggage, was really disappointed when this book came to an end, we also get to meet Bethan a new character who is saved from being sacrificed by Rincewind and Cohan The Barbarian. This book takes you on a magical journeys full of thrills and adventures, it keeps you on the edge of your seat and it is a book you do not want to put down.

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.

Not 'feeling' this at all...I get why people are such huge fans, I get the humour and the story as a whole, but it cannot sustain my interest although I am a big fan of fantasy. I have only read a third of the book and might have to leave it and come back to it at some point but as of now I'm not 'getting' it...AT ALL.

I had never read Terry Pratchett before, assuming it was some kind of cult for teenage boys. How wrong I was. It is really funny in that surreal English way.

It's definitely an improvement on the Colour of magic. The book in general has more of a flow than the previous instalment which makes it a lot easier to read.

The characters, especially Cohen, provide some genuine laugh out loud moments.

I just wish I got into discworld sooner!!
