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.
In The Light Fantastic, only one individual can save the world from a disastrous collision. Unfortunately, the hero happens to be the singularly inept wizard Rincewind, who was last seen falling off the edge of the world.
Terry Pratchett was a fantastic author. Reading this book, like all of his books, was time well spent.
what missing “chapter?"
So far as I have seen, most of the Discworld books are not written in chapters. Can anyone tell me what part is supposedly missing? (Page numbers are also not useful because people read iBooks in different font sizes.) I just read this book for the first time a few weeks ago (I’ve been bingeing on Discworld novels; just started Small Gods) and I didn’t see any sign that something was left out. Maybe they’ve corrected the problem?
Fantastic read. Even better than the first.
