It's another Pratchett gem. Doctors might consider prescribing these books instead of anti-depressants for some patients. They always work for me.
The story centres on the appearance of a sourcerer at the Unseen University, and the consequences, with Rincewind - an old friend - seemingly the only one who can save Discworld. He picks up a couple of fellow travellers along the way, before the final denouement. The story moves along at the author's usual rapid pace, but once or twice, particularly at the end, characters inexplicably change just to make the story work, which I found rather spoilt it for me.
'Sourcery' was probably my least favourite of the 5 books so far, but its still a great read.
