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.

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...

3.5 The Colour of Magic by Terry Pratchett
This is an entertaining, enchanting, humorous and mind-boggling introduction to the Discworld. You can tell this is an early work from Pratchett - the writing isn't as good as newer works and the Discworld is still a work in progress. But this is still a lovely entertaining book. In this first D...

4.0 The Colour of Magic by Terry Pratchett (audiobook)
Series: Discworld #1 Although not exactly in line with the other Discworld series, this first book is still a fun satire of 1980s fantasy novels with lots of funny bits and quips. I enjoyed Nigel Planer's narration, and I'm happy I went the audio route this time. I'm counting this for the Relics...
