The Color of Magic (Discworld Novels (Pb)) (Prebound)
So you want to get into Discworld but you don’t know where to start? Why not start at the beginning? This first novel of Pratchett’s hilarious, engaging, and colorful world offers up an absurd fantasy adventure while introducing all the crazy denizens of the Disc. Soon you’ll be fast friends with Rincewind, Twoflower, Nanny Ogg, and even Death. Pratchett was a machine pumping out 41 of these books; all amazing.— Caleb
Imagine, if you will . . .
a flat world sitting on the backs of four elephants who hurtle through space balanced on a giant turtle. In truth, the Discworld is not so different from our own. Yet, at the same time, very different . . . but not so much.
In this, the maiden voyage through Terry Pratchett's divinely and recognizably twisted alternate dimension, the well-meaning but remarkably inept wizard Rincewind encounters something hitherto unknown in the Discworld: a tourist Twoflower has arrived, Luggage by his side, to take in the sights and, unfortunately, has cast his lot with a most inappropriate tour guide--a decision that could result in Twoflower's becoming not only Discworld's first visitor from elsewhere . . . but quite possibly, portentously, its very last. And, of course, he's brought Luggage along, which has a mind of its own. And teeth.
