There's also one Conan the Barbarian parody that's abruptly dropped in favor of another Conan the Barbarian parody who Pratchett apparently liked better.

It's not until the latter part of the second book does an overall plot come into play, but honestly I was enjoying myself so much I really didn't mind.

Expect to see lots more Discworld books reviewed here in the future. Oct 28, J. Keely rated it did not like it Shelves: humor , reviewed , abandoned , fantasy.

This series is much beloved of my friends, both here on Goodreads and out in the wilds of meatspace --he's even been referred to as Fantasy's answer to one of my favorite authors: the superlatively funny and insightful Douglas Adams.

As such, I was excited to start the series at the beginning, hoping the wit and wisdom would overcome the warts of this early outing. Unfortunately,the jokes drew more groans than guffaws, reminding me of Mark Twain's comments on the book of friend and fellow America This series is much beloved of my friends, both here on Goodreads and out in the wilds of meatspace --he's even been referred to as Fantasy's answer to one of my favorite authors: the superlatively funny and insightful Douglas Adams.

Unfortunately,the jokes drew more groans than guffaws, reminding me of Mark Twain's comments on the book of friend and fellow American treasure Ambrose Bierce : "There is humor in 'Dod Grile', but for every laugh that is in his book there are five blushes, ten shudders and a vomit.

The laugh is too expensive. After finding this one unpalatable, a friend suggested I try one of his later books, so I started Moving Pictures , but while it was more competently crafted, I found it no more amusing.

I guess you can't trust your friends. I've since been told to try another of his books--most often Night Watch and Small Gods are mentioned, but I find it impossible to work up any enthusiasm for another outing with Pratchett--perhaps one day, I'll get there.

If I hadn't already read the entire series, and if I was judging this book just by its own merits, I'd still be saying that it harnesses the lightning and even finds a way to make it go side to side rather than up and down.

It's really fantastic as a straight fantasy with tons of humorous elements, with a good deal more worldbuilding than all the later books, more obvious and harsher tongue-in-cheek elements, and a great setup for the Great Wizzard Rincewind.

I love Rincewind. I love the If I hadn't already read the entire series, and if I was judging this book just by its own merits, I'd still be saying that it harnesses the lightning and even finds a way to make it go side to side rather than up and down.

Am I sad that Sir Terry is no longer with us? View all 5 comments. May 22, Helen 2. Shelves: fantasy-epic , brs-done , humor , own , magic , read Terry Pratchett is a genius, as usual.

This man can do no wrong. He reminds me a lot of Douglas Adams, my favorite in the realm of satire. Look at this similarity: "In the beginning the Universe was created.

This has made a lot of people very angry and been widely regarded as a bad move. Rincewind is tasked with protecting Twoflower, a naive but totally loaded insurance agent out on a tour of the world, who has more luck in one day than anyone should rightfully have their whole lives.

Joining the travelers is a multi-legged, man-eating, overprotective chest of luggage. The gods then play dice with their lives - literally.

Chaos and hilarity ensue. It follows Rincewind across the Disc and protects him from any threat. It also has the uncanny ability to convey emotions mostly menace without possessing any facial features.

I'm eternally jealous of Twoflower for owning walking luggage - I have to drag my possessions everywhere. I love Terry Pratchett's ability to make fun of corruption, greed, cowardice, and other evils so common in the world without coming off as bitter or even very critical.

He creates characters with many faults but makes them lovable anyway; Rincewind being the big example in this book. Besides that, Pratchett is insanely skilled at writing simple but funny prose.

Some examples: "The door flew open, badly damaging the assassin who was standing beside it. Check back in just over two years to see if I'm done yet xD View all 9 comments.

And boredom was best. I wanted to see the highly acclaimed Discworld and if it was any better! I think the mix between humor and fantasy is weird but it can work and it kind of worked here!

I heard that this is the worst in the series so it looks like it does have potential! I confess that some things went over my head and took me some time to understand, like the four-eyed creature that is actually a human wearing glasses but even the name given to him was not a typical human name!

I was confused at more than one point and going through the reviews now, I discovered that I was not the only one! It was a debut and really felt like one.

I do not know what made it blow up in the past and to continue the series into 40 books, maybe because it was unique and unlike any other thing I read.

The book was a bit confusing, a bit funny and a bit chaotic. The good news is I heard it gets better which means, for the time being, I am willing to continue to book 2 at least!

If you are looking for an excellent book that mixes humor and fantasy then I recommend Kings of the Wyld by Nicholas Eames. It merely fades away.

It is great fun for someone who wants to get immersed in another world. The setting is the disc which rides horizontally on the backs of four enormous elephants who stand on an even more enormous turtle, which is explained in the beginning of the prologue.

Through sea-sized eyes that are crusted with rheum and asteroid dust He stares fixedly at the Destination. The basic story revolves around Rincewind the unfinished wizard and a tourist named Twoflower, who arrives in Ankh-Morpork, the oldest city in the world, which has no concept of tourism.

He has a peculiar phrase book and tries to make himself understood. Finally, he and Rincewind find a common tongue and thus begin their travels.

There is the Luggage, a large sort of sea chest which follows Twoflower around — on many tiny little legs! It opens and closes — killing hapless thieves and snapping at others.

It seems to be full of gold, among other things, which makes for more fun, since Twoflower has no understanding of currency exchange rates and splashes his gold about temptingly.

He wants to observe real life, a barroom brawl, if you could arrange it, please, and if people get hurt or killed, well that's reality for the place, isn't it?

The setting is more or less medieval, as so many fantasies seem to be, with inns and horses and beggars and swordfights, damsels and dragons.

A dragonrider handed him a long shape, wrapped in red silk. Rincewind took a deep breath. Runes glowed on its surface.

My favourite character has always been Death, who speaks in capital letters with no quotation marks, He hates being foiled when the "system" fails.

Death offers to help him get there in time. Death watched him go, and shrugged bitterly. He turned, and noticed the fish salesman. Much later, a demon disguised as Death, lets slip that reincarnation can be an improvement.

Indeed, I think the first I read was Mort, and I got the hang of it quickly. There are dozens of others as well as countless books for readers of different ages.

I'm sure this would have been a 5-star read for me back in , and I plan to read some more. Sir Terry certainly earned his knighthood, and both worlds are the poorer for his leaving them in But by golly, what a legacy!

I think I mostly had a hard time slogging through all of the world-building and made up words. Fantasy has never been my thing, because I'm not someone who enjoys reading descriptions of the characters surroundings.

I'm not giving up on the series, though. I think I'll just go back through my book It had some funny moments, but I really struggled to get through it.

I think I'll just go back through my book recommendations and find the ones I was told to start with.

The Color of Magic is, in fact, four novella-length stories stitched together to create a novel-length book. But don't you worry, the book reads well as a whole without a jerking bump to stop the journey.

I wouldn't have even noticed the stitching if I haven't known it was there. As the story starts, Rincewind a disgraced wizard meets up with Twoflower an oblivious tourist and his rather menacing walking luggage yes, with a luggage like Twoflower's you don't have to worry about carry your things The Color of Magic is, in fact, four novella-length stories stitched together to create a novel-length book.

As the story starts, Rincewind a disgraced wizard meets up with Twoflower an oblivious tourist and his rather menacing walking luggage yes, with a luggage like Twoflower's you don't have to worry about carry your things around; the several pairs of feet under the large chest will follow you keeping your belongings close by and always safe Wizard and tourist are thrown together by unforeseen, and fantastic -but not at all unbelievable- circumstances, and soon engage in a tour of Discworld the alternate universe born from Pratchett's supreme inventiveness.

The tour is funny and surprising, and the story will carry you around without effort. However, if you're looking for a tight plot, consistent world building, or if silly British humor annoys you, this novel, and all Discworld for all that matters, may not be for you.

The plot does meander a bit, but Pratchett's writing skills keep your focus somewhere else, so you don't even care.

One thing is clear even in this the first novel of the Discworld series, Pratchett has bucket loads of talent. If you like to laugh, then Pratchett's your man.

His comedy timing is fantastic, and he possesses the intellect and the ability to make you laugh out loud regardless if you like, or read, or are even familiar with fantasy nonetheless, some familiarity with the basic tropes of fantasy will aid in your enjoyment.

However, if you've read other Discoworld novels, you will notice that when it comes to topical humor, this novel is a bit thinner than Pratchett's later additions to the series; understandable, since it was written more tan two decades ago.

Now, regardless of it age, the novel still feels remarkably fresh , mostly thanks to the imperishable quality of humor in which we laugh at ourselves.

View all 8 comments. The very first Discworld novel. The one it all began with. I've been a fan of Sir Terry's for a long time.

I've even read a few other of his books some standalone, some of the Fairy Tales or later volumes of this series and loved them all.

Fans have given me two pieces of advice ever since I first heard of Discworld : 1 Stay away from the first 3 books! What are you, a savage?!

Thus, I did what every self-respected The very first Discworld novel. Thus, I did what every self-respected bookworm with no idea what to do would do - I let the matter rest and, in time, watched a few of the movies first.

The movies weren't bad at all despite apparently never having had the appropriate budget and I found myself wishing for more.

And then Sir Terry died. Even while writing this my eyes water. It was, if you believe it or not, another reason to put off reading the books.

This volume introduces readers to the Discworld that stands on the backs of four elephants which in turn stand on the shell of the great turtle Great A'Tuin that floats through space.

Science as we know it doesn't apply here as gods are real, so is magic, and many things exist solely because people believe in them.

It is about a wiz z ard named Rincewind and his adventure or at least the first half of it with Twoflower, a visitor from the counterweight continent.

Twoflower being the very first tourist means a lot of miscommunication people in Ankh-Morpork, where he lands first, don't know what glasses are for example.

This gives the author the great opportunity to mock tourism in general with people experiencing foreign places through the lenses of their "picture boxes", speaking in not really helpful sentences out of dictionaries.

Interpsersed we get funny takes on insurance utterly unheard of in Ankh-Morpork and the whole "hero" business then and later in the book.

Rincewind, one must admit, isn't exactly the greatest of wizards, but his quirky way is endearing.

He and Twoflower travel from Ankh-Morpork to Quirm or at least towards it , Wyrmberg, and even the Edge where they meet the people of Krull.

They stumble from one catastrophe into the next, all the while being unaware that their encounters are actually caused by gods they are pieces on one of their board games.

This means that the reader gets to see a number of corners of this unique world that so perfectly mirrors the craziness of our own.

We even get an overlapping when Rincewind calls a plane from our world to save himself and Twoflower. Not sure what Sir Terry intended he had a cameo in the movie so he must have known about the interpretation of Rincewind for the screen but he seems to be younger in the books than in the movie.

Book Rincewind on covers: Movie Rincewind right : And yes, the actor reminds me a bit of a male Maggie Smith with his gestures and facial expressions he is as cynical and grumpy as the Dowager Countess Grantham after all.

The story then concludes with a quite literal cliffhanger bad play of word, I know and picks up immediately at the start of the next book so technically they belong together.

Now, for the actual impression. I can see why many have told me not to start the series with the first book. So doing this was the right choice.

That being said, I have to admit that some spins on ideas the author played with in this were Sure, I enjoyed the "Big Bang" joke right at the beginning and loved the cynical view on many things, but overall it really could have been sharper.

Moreover, and this is my fault alone, many stabs at classic fantasy bits were if not completely then at least to some degree lost on me.

Sure, I got the parody of heroes and stuff, but none of that was laughing-out-loud material. Yes, it almost sounds like blasphemy, but it is obvious how old the book is, in what early stages Sir Terry still was and yet - and YET - you can already see and feel the greatness poking through with a dagger Assassin's Guild style!

Also, this series has so many books that I will probably never be able to finish it, which kept me from reading it in the first place.

Apart from the fact that they always seemed a bit too ridiculous to actually be good. Now, I did catch myself laughing a few times and generally enjoying it much more than I thought I would.

The humour ranges from immature to fantastic and makes for a very entertaining read. Apart from that, the stories are fast-paced, imaginative and exciting.

A nice start to the series, plenty of action and some humor : The scenes with Krull and near the edge of the world were one of my many favorites It seemed alot to cram into one novel, at times my eyes glazed over and I had to re-read a couple passages.

Don't get me wrong, it was all interesting but it could've been spread out more. Hats off to you once again Mr. Pratchett for bringing this to us : Read David's excellent review , he captures it wonderfully.

Aug 03, Amanda rated it it was ok Shelves: meh , blog. It just didn't do it for me. Unfortunately, this book has been recommended to me so many times by well-meaning friends who know my love of absurd British humor that it couldn't possibly live up to the hype.

It suffers from The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy syndrome. For years, everyone I knew--friends, family, students, co-workers--would ask me if I had read Hitchhiker's and their mouths would drop when I admitted no, I hadn't.

Their response was always the same, "Oh, but you h Meh. Their response was always the same, "Oh, but you have to! It's like it was written for YOU!

Ditto for The Color of Magic. I'll admit, Pratchett has a way with words and there was the occasional turn of phrase in response to which I made that air-escaping-from-the-nose sound that's not full bodied enough to be considered a snort of laughter.

There was the infrequent half-smile. A few head nods in appreciation of a clever conceit. But, alas, there were no tear-inducing uncontrollable fits of laughter, which is what I expected.

Will I read more Pratchett? Yes, because I have at least three more books by him lying about. I just hope they're better than this.

Precisely why all the above below, in this review, I guess should be so is not clear, but goes some way to explain why, on the disc, the Gods are not so much worshipped as blamed.

Have you ever wondered about what would happen if you were merely a pawn in a game played by gods? Have you ever wondered about how living in a Flat-Earth would be?

Would you like to learn about what failed wizards do in their free time? Are you curious about how dragons are born and how they rest?

Do you want to Precisely why all the above below, in this review, I guess should be so is not clear, but goes some way to explain why, on the disc, the Gods are not so much worshipped as blamed.

Do you want to understand what insurance actually means? If the answer to any of these questions is yes, then The Colour of Magic is the book for you.

However, if you're a pragmatist, and lack imagination, I would suggest you steer clear of the book. Welcome to Discworld; the land of the strange and scary, of the weird and wonderful.

It's important to know, before you enter this magical and frankly absurd land, that you are a pawn in a life-sized game of Dungeons and Dragons.

There is no escaping that. Do not make deals with Fate, do not sing prayers for The Lady; perhaps, just perhaps, you might just survive.

Though, well, you do start to question whether surviving is actually worth it. Journey along with sarcastic and cynical Rincewind, a failed wizard, and Twoflower, a tourist under his care.

Rincewind is an extremely likable character, a rationalist, and quick-witted to the core. Rincewind often suspected that there was something, somewhere, that was better than magic.

He was usually disappointed. Twoflower, who sells inn-sewer-ants polly-see, on the other hand, is a typical tourist - he gets excited at every instance, and would rather photograph a fascinating sight than run for his life.

Twoflower was a tourist, the first ever seen on the Discworld. There are books that employ elements of satire to prove a point; this book, and I believe the series by extension, are wholly satire, and I found myself literally laughing out loud at more than one point.

The story starts at Ankh-Morpork, a city so rife with accidents, nothing quite astounds their citizens anymore.

A city of thieves, fraudsters and scoundrels. A city through which flows the filthy River Ankh. In a city where public executions, duels, fights, magical feuds and strange events regularly punctuated the daily round the inhabitants had brought the profession of interested bystander to a peak of perfection.

The city of Ankh-Morpork perhaps best explains human beings as a species. Their casual nature, their inclination to defraud, rather than help people in trouble, and their undying love for gold.

The journey from there is a meandering one, onto the Temple of Bel-Shamharoth, the temple of the Soul-Eater. There is an escape into the world of Dragons, through an actual aeroplane like the ones we have on Earth , and onto the Circumfence, yes, Circumfence, not circumference, because you do need a fence at the rim of the Discworld.

Our two friends here, they meet heroes and villains, and creatures we mustn't speak of. In his dry and totally British way, Pratchett mocks religion, and the religious.

The simple, laughing islanders subsequently worshipped it as a god, much to the amusement of their more sophisticated neighbors.

Strangely enough the rainfall and harvests in the next few years were almost supernaturally abundant, and this led to a research team being dispatched to the islands by the Minor Religions faculty of Unseen University.

Their verdict was that it only went to show. He laughs at humans and their follies, at our propensity to regale ourselves with tales of heroes of yore.

Learn about Dragons you can summon with your imagination, and the significance of the number 8. Experience the colour Octarine, and the 8-banded Rimbow.

Communicate with different languages whose words make no sense at all. Understand how magic is actually, really, quite difficult. Have hair-raising adventures with Rincewind, Twoflower, and his sentient luggage, Luggage.

I read Amanda's review This'un. It's unfair. To me, I mean. I don't care if it's fair to the book if others have set my expectations too high and then it didn't live up to them.

It's a book. It doesn't have feelings or a brain and thus cannot understand why it should feel sorry for me. But, to be fair to the expectation raisers, I'd also read Good Omens by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett, and I really enjoyed it, so that also tended to set the bar higher and make my fall just that much further.

So, in a discussion with a friend, she mentioned that "The Colour of Magic is basically a collection of in-jokes about other books.

Zelazny did the same thing with A Night In The Lonesome October, and even though I had read much more of the referenced and hinted at works he incorporated into his story, and so should have been more "in the know" and thus able to enjoy it more, I didn't.

I don't read that way. I am not analyzing every line looking for something else - I'm looking for the author to tell me a story.

And this kind of storytelling is both lazy and too much work at the same time, if you ask me. Don't get me wrong, I like easter eggs in books.

I like little references that people in the know will get and have a little something added I like it. But, in my opinion, it should just be that - a little something nice added.

People who don't get the reference should not even notice it, because the story is standing on its own legs and is complete without it.

I don't read to interpret A to be a reference to X from book Q and need to know X from Q's history to understand what A is doing in your book.

I just want a good fucking story. Tell me one, and get on with it. But about the book itself, I dunno what to say. It didn't feel like a novel, which was how I approached it, it felt like a set of stories just sharing some characters and a general world setting.

I think trying to read it as a novel, looking for the overarching story from page 1 to page whatever, set me up for failure as well.

If I had read this as each chapter being a vignette story, that would probably have been better. Likewise, it just seemed to forget some of the conflicts that were raised.

In the beginning of the book, the Patriarch or whatever he's called threatens Rincewind with death if anything untoward should happen to Twoflower the tourist In fact, every danger is just gone as soon as its gone.

There's no follow-up, there's no consequences And that is one of my least favorite things. I hate when there are no rules and anything and everything and the kitchen sink are just possible because why not?

Unfortunately like the Hogfather this doesn't really work. The film split into two parts on TV drags something chronic and even Pratchett admits in the introduction that the original story has no plot as such.

There are some glaring errors in the directing and editing that distract sometimes and the casting isn't perfect.

Sean Astin is having fun as the naive and innocent tourist and David Bradley is great as the Barbarian but Tim Curry does his villain schtick with no real invention apart from a slight Northern accent that keeps coming and going and David Jason looks tired and a bit bored.

Suspect Pratchett probably would work better as animation or with an experimental director like Terry Gilliam.

A taste: "'Well,' said the voice. Anyway, I now recall what it was I am about to tell you. Or have I already done so? View all 7 comments. Also, this series has so many books that I will probably never be able to finish it, which kept me from reading it in the first place.

Apart from the fact that they always seemed a bit too ridiculous to actually be good. Now, I did catch myself laughing a few times and generally enjoying it much more than I thought I would.

The humour ranges from immature to fantastic and makes for a very entertaining read. Apart from that, the stories are fast-paced, imaginative and exciting.

It won't take long for me to pick up the sequels, I'm sure. Find more of my books on Instagram Apr 20, TL rated it liked it. A charming and sometimes tedious novel, Rincewind grew on me quickly and I enjoyed watching him get into and out of scrapes along the way.

Death's and Fate's frustration with him was hilarious. I kept imagining them as toddlers stomping their feet :-D. Two Flower I was so so on His optimism seemed misplaced sometimes, but he had good intentions.

A nice start to the series, plenty of action and some humor : The scenes with Krull and near the edge of the world were one of my many favorites It seemed alot to cram into one novel, at times my eyes glazed over and I had to re-read a couple passages.

Don't get me wrong, it was all interesting but it could've been spread out more. Hats off to you once again Mr. Pratchett for bringing this to us : Read David's excellent review , he captures it wonderfully.

Aug 03, Amanda rated it it was ok Shelves: meh , blog. It just didn't do it for me. Unfortunately, this book has been recommended to me so many times by well-meaning friends who know my love of absurd British humor that it couldn't possibly live up to the hype.

It suffers from The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy syndrome. For years, everyone I knew--friends, family, students, co-workers--would ask me if I had read Hitchhiker's and their mouths would drop when I admitted no, I hadn't.

Their response was always the same, "Oh, but you h Meh. Their response was always the same, "Oh, but you have to! It's like it was written for YOU!

Ditto for The Color of Magic. I'll admit, Pratchett has a way with words and there was the occasional turn of phrase in response to which I made that air-escaping-from-the-nose sound that's not full bodied enough to be considered a snort of laughter.

There was the infrequent half-smile. A few head nods in appreciation of a clever conceit. But, alas, there were no tear-inducing uncontrollable fits of laughter, which is what I expected.

Will I read more Pratchett? Yes, because I have at least three more books by him lying about. I just hope they're better than this.

Precisely why all the above below, in this review, I guess should be so is not clear, but goes some way to explain why, on the disc, the Gods are not so much worshipped as blamed.

Have you ever wondered about what would happen if you were merely a pawn in a game played by gods? Have you ever wondered about how living in a Flat-Earth would be?

Would you like to learn about what failed wizards do in their free time? Are you curious about how dragons are born and how they rest? Do you want to Precisely why all the above below, in this review, I guess should be so is not clear, but goes some way to explain why, on the disc, the Gods are not so much worshipped as blamed.

Do you want to understand what insurance actually means? If the answer to any of these questions is yes, then The Colour of Magic is the book for you.

However, if you're a pragmatist, and lack imagination, I would suggest you steer clear of the book. Welcome to Discworld; the land of the strange and scary, of the weird and wonderful.

It's important to know, before you enter this magical and frankly absurd land, that you are a pawn in a life-sized game of Dungeons and Dragons.

There is no escaping that. Do not make deals with Fate, do not sing prayers for The Lady; perhaps, just perhaps, you might just survive.

Though, well, you do start to question whether surviving is actually worth it. Journey along with sarcastic and cynical Rincewind, a failed wizard, and Twoflower, a tourist under his care.

Rincewind is an extremely likable character, a rationalist, and quick-witted to the core. Rincewind often suspected that there was something, somewhere, that was better than magic.

He was usually disappointed. Twoflower, who sells inn-sewer-ants polly-see, on the other hand, is a typical tourist - he gets excited at every instance, and would rather photograph a fascinating sight than run for his life.

Twoflower was a tourist, the first ever seen on the Discworld. There are books that employ elements of satire to prove a point; this book, and I believe the series by extension, are wholly satire, and I found myself literally laughing out loud at more than one point.

The story starts at Ankh-Morpork, a city so rife with accidents, nothing quite astounds their citizens anymore.

A city of thieves, fraudsters and scoundrels. A city through which flows the filthy River Ankh. In a city where public executions, duels, fights, magical feuds and strange events regularly punctuated the daily round the inhabitants had brought the profession of interested bystander to a peak of perfection.

The city of Ankh-Morpork perhaps best explains human beings as a species. Their casual nature, their inclination to defraud, rather than help people in trouble, and their undying love for gold.

The journey from there is a meandering one, onto the Temple of Bel-Shamharoth, the temple of the Soul-Eater. There is an escape into the world of Dragons, through an actual aeroplane like the ones we have on Earth , and onto the Circumfence, yes, Circumfence, not circumference, because you do need a fence at the rim of the Discworld.

Our two friends here, they meet heroes and villains, and creatures we mustn't speak of. In his dry and totally British way, Pratchett mocks religion, and the religious.

The simple, laughing islanders subsequently worshipped it as a god, much to the amusement of their more sophisticated neighbors.

Strangely enough the rainfall and harvests in the next few years were almost supernaturally abundant, and this led to a research team being dispatched to the islands by the Minor Religions faculty of Unseen University.

Their verdict was that it only went to show. He laughs at humans and their follies, at our propensity to regale ourselves with tales of heroes of yore.

Learn about Dragons you can summon with your imagination, and the significance of the number 8. Experience the colour Octarine, and the 8-banded Rimbow.

Communicate with different languages whose words make no sense at all. Understand how magic is actually, really, quite difficult. Have hair-raising adventures with Rincewind, Twoflower, and his sentient luggage, Luggage.

Curse the gods, the ghosts and the monsters. Read Discworld. View all 13 comments. I dunno if this is going to be a proper 'review' heh, as though any of the things that I write in this space are So, like my usual offerings.

I read Amanda's review This'un. It's unfair. To me, I mean. I don't care if it's fair to the book if others have set my expectations too high and then it didn't live up to them.

It's a book. It doesn't have feelings or a brain and thus cannot understand why it should feel sorry for me. But, to be fair to the expectation raisers, I'd also read Good Omens by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett, and I really enjoyed it, so that also tended to set the bar higher and make my fall just that much further.

So, in a discussion with a friend, she mentioned that "The Colour of Magic is basically a collection of in-jokes about other books.

Zelazny did the same thing with A Night In The Lonesome October, and even though I had read much more of the referenced and hinted at works he incorporated into his story, and so should have been more "in the know" and thus able to enjoy it more, I didn't.

I don't read that way. I am not analyzing every line looking for something else - I'm looking for the author to tell me a story.

And this kind of storytelling is both lazy and too much work at the same time, if you ask me. Don't get me wrong, I like easter eggs in books.

I like little references that people in the know will get and have a little something added I like it. But, in my opinion, it should just be that - a little something nice added.

People who don't get the reference should not even notice it, because the story is standing on its own legs and is complete without it. I don't read to interpret A to be a reference to X from book Q and need to know X from Q's history to understand what A is doing in your book.

I just want a good fucking story. Tell me one, and get on with it. But about the book itself, I dunno what to say.

It didn't feel like a novel, which was how I approached it, it felt like a set of stories just sharing some characters and a general world setting.

I think trying to read it as a novel, looking for the overarching story from page 1 to page whatever, set me up for failure as well.

If I had read this as each chapter being a vignette story, that would probably have been better. Likewise, it just seemed to forget some of the conflicts that were raised.

In the beginning of the book, the Patriarch or whatever he's called threatens Rincewind with death if anything untoward should happen to Twoflower the tourist In fact, every danger is just gone as soon as its gone.

There's no follow-up, there's no consequences And that is one of my least favorite things. I hate when there are no rules and anything and everything and the kitchen sink are just possible because why not?

So annoying. It was like pages of deus ex machina. I didn't care about any of the characters I think I was meant to care about. I liked Death, and the Luggage.

I was rooting for them both to take their due from Rincewind. Maybe next book. By all accounts, the Discworld books get better, and I'll probably go along and hope for that, but my patience has thinned quite a lot.

I'll give this series another chance, but if it continues on this way - with the references and the deus ex machina in place of proper storytelling, and the unfunny because man, I didn't even crack a smile!

Life is too short. View all 21 comments. Apr 07, Phrynne rated it it was amazing. I first read this book many years ago and I remember I fell in love with the Disc World as soon as I read the first few pages.

I loved the idea of the turtle swimming through space and the elephants and the rim fall and the eighth colour in the spectrum called octarine.

Twoflower and Rincewind were the first of many of Pratchett's characters I would meet who are so helpless and yet who blunder successfully through mishap after mishap.

And as for the Luggage! That has to be one of the best invent I first read this book many years ago and I remember I fell in love with the Disc World as soon as I read the first few pages.

That has to be one of the best inventions ever. I have just reread this book in honour of Terry Pratchett after his recent death. However I find - just like last time - I am not going to be able to stop at one.

I am back in the Disc World and loving it This is the very first Discworld novel from the much missed Sir Terry Pratchett.

It is quite different in tone to the rest of the Discworld novels with the exception of its direct sequel, The Light Fantastic , but is still an excellent introduction to the franchise.

Feb 02, William rated it really liked it Recommends it for: Everyone. This is my first Discworld book, after decades of procrastinating, and what fun it was!

I was a bit concerned the books might be to silly, or possibly directed at a younger audience, but that was not my impression at all.

I was laughing all the way through this book, and also very impressed with the fantasy elements! I would compare the humor to Monty Python and the Holy Grail, which is one of my favorite movies.

I'd recommend The Color of Magic to anyone, as it's just a very enjoyable read. Mov This is my first Discworld book, after decades of procrastinating, and what fun it was!

Moving on to book 2, The Light Fantastic! Back to where it all began. I think this is my third time reading this, but that does show how long ago my introduction to this series was.

I have a huge affection for this entire series and the author as a human being, but I'm actually quite glad that I wasn't a more sophisticated reader when I was first exposed to this.

If this had been my first exposure to his work today, I'm not sure I would have continued with them. In summary, the Discworld experiences its first tourist, Twoflower, from the Back to where it all began.

In summary, the Discworld experiences its first tourist, Twoflower, from the incredibly rich Counterweight Continent. Along with his Luggage and magic picture-taking box Twoflower encounters the wizard Rincewind who gets recruited as his guide to the wonders of the Discworld.

From there, adventures ensue in the city of Ankh-Morpork, the Temple of the Sender of Eight, a hive of Dragonriders and eventually the edge of the Discworld itself.

The first of the series is very much a satire of the whole fantasy field. Ankh-Morpork is a very thinly veiled Lankhmar complete with Bravd and the Weasel.

The barbarians that Rincewind and Twoflower meet are lifted straight from Robert E. The Dragonriders are a homage to Pern and Boris Vallejo.

And Tolkien and RPG references abound as well. The book even has the classic "fix-up" novel structure where a novel is made up of linked stories that were published in pulp magazines separately.

The book does what it intends to do: satire the fantasy field of the time. Pratchett's innate creativity shines through though and there are plenty of original creations that are the seeds of the brilliance of later Discworld novels, but this is clearly very early.

The Patrician of Ankh-Morpork is introduced here, but he is just Generic Shrewd Ruler, rather than the razor-sharp mastercrafter of civilization that he is in later books.

That's not in evidence here, and I felt it was a bit of a slog to get through. This was quite the interesting and funny little book. So much is happening in these odd pages.

So many characters. My mind has been entertained as well as confused. I enjoyed Rincwind and Twoflower. January 29, Full Review….

View All Critic Reviews 2. Jul 20, Kari K Super Reviewer. Mar 02, An all star cast for England in a follow up to the previous years Hogfather.

Unfortunately like the Hogfather this doesn't really work. The film split into two parts on TV drags something chronic and even Pratchett admits in the introduction that the original story has no plot as such.

There are some glaring errors in the directing and editing that distract sometimes and the casting isn't perfect. Sean Astin is having fun as the naive and innocent tourist and David Bradley is great as the Barbarian but Tim Curry does his villain schtick with no real invention apart from a slight Northern accent that keeps coming and going and David Jason looks tired and a bit bored.

Suspect Pratchett probably would work better as animation or with an experimental director like Terry Gilliam.

This just falls short or being that good. David S Super Reviewer. Apr 20, This was a great adaptation.
