Review:

The Colour of Magic is Terry Pratchett's maiden voyage through the bizarre land of Discworld. His entertaining and witty series has grown to more than 20 books, and this is where it all starts--with the tourist Twoflower and his hapless wizard guide, Rincewind ("All wizards get like that... it's the quicksilver fumes. Rots their brains. Mushrooms, too."). Pratchett spoofs fantasy clichés--and everything else he can think of--while marshalling a profusion of characters through a madcap adventure. The Colour of Magic is followed by The Light Fantastic. --Blaise Selby, Amazon.com

Review:

"'One of the best and funniest English authors alive'" (Independent)

"In the tradition of classic British humour...Incidentally informative about everything from quantum physics to the behaviour of camels. He may parody history and myth, but at the same time he resuscitates and animates them." (Guardian)
