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.

It had a lot of people and things happening and I felt like I needed to read a prequel book in order to understand everything that was going on. Maybe I just didn't get the funny parts of the book. I just felt lost through most of this...

3.5 The Colour of Magic (Discworld, #1)
I never know how to review the discworld books. They're sort of impossible to describe to anyone who hasn't already read them, and likewise, they're hard (for me) to review. Generally, having read a few of the later discworld books in a couple of the sub-series, I found this one to be the weake...

4.0 Worst best luck and a tourist
This is my first Pratchett, and I had so much fun. It was all the elements: the zanny world, all the stabs at our world's and several sub-types of fantasies usual conventions, Rincewind's quality of "Luck's *shhhhhhhh!* The Lady's plaything" and Twoflower's perfect embodiment of the "too oblivious...

Soooo ... in this year's twist on RL doing its best trying to throw a spanner in the works of Halloween Bingo fun, I've been spending the better part of the month either sitting around in conference ...
