    The Colour of Magic

    The Colour of Magic is one of the most amazing, imaginative, funny and entertaining books ever written. It takes a world not unlike our own but very different at the sametime, sprinkles it with some modern ideas with a fantasy twist, adds a dash of wit, a smattering of comedy and tops it off with a little irony. Bake it in a preheated oven at 200c for 20 minutes and voila you have Discworld, the pizza shaped world carried by four elephants astride the shell of a giant turtle that swims through space to some unknown destination; what more could you ask for? The Colour of Magic is just that: magic. Read it and if you have a funny bone it will be tickled; but in a good way, not in the you just banged your elbow on the corner of the wall kind of way. Don't worry, the book is a lot funnier than I am.

    Loved Discworld Novel1

    Terry Pratchett is just brilliant as an Author. It's been like reading Monty Python, only better (if that's even possible). Adored Twoflower, Rincewind &, of course, the Luggage. Will be purchasing more Discworld books!

    Great

    If you're able to pick up on some of the subtleties, it's great. Despite what it appears to be at first glance, Pratchett 's humour is a very witty one. I even laughed out loud several times.

    First book

    This is, I believe, the first book in the Disc World series, and as such, feels like an person learning to swim. I have read many parts of this series out of order, which , to the extreme credit of the author, you can do successfully. Thus, I know that this swimmer becomes a universe class swimmer very quickly. Had I read this book first, I would have given it a higher rating...but I still recommend it and every other book in the series if godlike whit, humour and humanity are things you enjoy in a read.

    Hilarious, satirical and clever

    The adventures of Rincewind, the wizard dropout who hides an impossibly potent spell, and Twoflower, the naïve and jolly tourist from a faraway land, are a hilarious take on fantasy with wonderful sprinkles of satirical humor - magic is understood much like energy/radiation in Physics terms, for instance, and that lends itself to witty and entertaining imagery. Pratchett is a colossal writer, each paragraph more colourful and filled with character as we go along this collection of episodes. I love this book and it enticed me to read the rest.
