bought this and lots of other pratchett books when got my first kindle so could read as liked. All the older books haven't read for a while and can not afford the prices for the hard backs (from middle to latest have a hardback collection). Took great pleasure in re-reading this again. The magic is still there and he's still the only author that keeps me glued to page chuckling away. If you haven't read a Pratchett novel before then buy one quick and be prepared for whole other world of entertainment.
Rincewind is another fav character from Pratchett - brilliantly funny
Great first time Pratchett read or equally valuable as an addition to the collection! One of my favs of his discworld novels, and it works out cheaper to get the three in one book, rather then individually, and believe me once you've read one of a trilogy you want them all - so, hey, we may as well be economic given current climes! Good for all ages and highly recommended, good for gifts for everyone, or a treat for yourself. p.s. I enjoy these books as a holiday read, it's not so heavy it takes working through :)
i found that this book was brillient in every way, i dident bye it for myself but i had it bort for me as a present, rincwind is an incredibly funny and whitty charater and some how pulls the plot together, i would give this trilogy more that five stars bot unfortunatly i cant.
