The Color of Magic: Discworld by Terry Pratchett

The Color of Magic

The Color of Magic - A Discworld Novel by Terry Pratchett

I have never been much of a fiction reader, but I am always willing to take suggestions from people. Especially when I generally appreciate their taste in literature. Dan likes to read good sci-fi and/or fantasy so when he suggested I read Terry Pratchett’s Discworld I thought I would check it out. The first in the series (why is it I always get myself into a series with more books to buy!?), The Color of Magic, was quite an enjoyable entrance into the Discworld universe.

It was whimsical and fun with endearing characters. While Rincewind and the tourist Twoflower went on their adventures, I quite enjoyed his luggage popping up from time to time to add to the levity and excitement.

If you are looking for a well written fantasy book or series, The Color of Magic: A Discworld Novel would be a good place to start.

And since Pratchett has written quite a few Discworld novels, someones has even created a very helpful chart: The Discworld Reading Order Guide.

Also, since the geography is somewhat confusing, which is bound to happen when your planet is a flat disc on the back for four elephants which are, in turn, standing on the back of Great A’Tuin, a giant tortoise, there are a number of maps available.

Recommended? Absolutely.
