The Colour of Magic, the first novel in Terry Pratchett's wildly imaginative Discworld series, takes the listener on a remarkable journey. The magical planet of Discworld is supported by four massive elephants who stand on the back of the Great A'Tuin, a giant turtle swimming slowly through the mysterious interstellar gulf. The adventure begins when an eccentric expedition sets out to explore the planet. The group, including an ineffective wizard and a naive tourist (whose luggage moves on its own little legs) encounters dragons who only exist if you believe in them, and, of course "The Edge" of the planet.Please note: This is a vintage recording.

3.5 The Color of Magic
I've read The Color of Magic a total of three times and each time I've rated it differently. The book starts out strong, but near the end it kind of fizzles out. After three readings however, the ending isn’t as much of a letdown as it was previously. It’s not laugh out loud funny, but it is humorou...

3.0 #TheColorofMagic: What am I missing?
I'm not feeling the love for Discworld I was expecting. The color of Magic was weird, and the not-all-that-interesting story wasn't enough to help get me past weird. I'm not giving up though, too many I respect put Terry Pratchett on a pedestal. Plus, I have Wee Free Men ready to go. I hear that o...

4.0 The Color of Magic
Two points - if the author is from England, shouldn't it be The Colour of Magic? And I can't tell if I got a slightly glitched copy of the e-book or if there were deliberate mistakes with oddly placed and/or missing quotation marks. Someone recommended the Discworld series to me a while ago and in...
