Terry Pratchett's profoundly irreverent, bestselling novels have garnered him a revered position in the halls of parody next to the likes of Mark Twain, Kurt Vonnegut, Douglas Adams, and Carl Hiaasen.
The Color of MagicM is Terry Pratchett's maiden voyage through the now-legendary land of Discworld. This is where it all begins -- with the tourist Twoflower and his wizard guide, Rincewind.

If you like the humor in Good Omens, you need to read these books
If you like the humor in Good Omens, you need to read these books. It seems like Terry Pratchett must've written all of the parts that I enjoyed about that book. These Discworld books are great!
Does what a good story is supposed to.
A reinvention of reality that shows me a reflection of the real world while telling me something interesting. I’m sorry to have come across this so late, and happy that there’s so much to look forward to.
Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds
Picture yourself in a boat on a river with octarine trees and marmalade skies. It seems as if this author was using the same inspiration as the Beatles when they recorded Sgt. Pepper's. The sudden shifts of reality, outrageous scenery, hidden worlds, and unbelievable events that somehow seem to make sense. It's too familiar to be coincidence. The irrepressible lack of logic reminds me of Tom Robbins but without the depth of emotion. All in all this book is more like a Yellow Submarine. It's short, silly, and entertaining but it's not much without the soundtrack.
