The Colour Of Magic – Terry Pratchett

Posted on November 11, 2008


This exciting novel is the first journey we take into Terry Pratchett’s bizarre Discworld series. With over 20 books in the series, each one is as thrilling, witty and laugh-out-loud as the next. The book follows the odd travels of the even odder companions Rincewind and Twoflower.

Rincewind is the wizard who just couldn’t who was flung out of the Unseen University after learning just one spell, which just so happened to be one of the Eight Great spells, which could unravel the very basis of the universe. When Rincewind meets the tourist Twoflower, his life just starts to get interesting – if only he was the adventurous type!

With a travelling Luggage with legs, a world resting on top of a turtle and a group of Gods who play with Fate, what can possibly go wrong?


I’d give this book a glowing ***** rating. It was hard to get into at first, but the entertaining and witty pace of the novel takes you through to the Edge!
