Book Review

Author: Terry Pratchett
Title: The colour of magic
Publisher: Colin Smythe LTD

The colour of magic is the maiden voyage through the Discworld, it is a trip you you have to experience if you are curious about the Discworld. If you are an experienced reader and have not read Terry Pratchett, then you have missed something unique.

Even though Rincewind is the main character, he's far from the only one. In this piece of papers, Terry Pratchett have managed to gather the worlds first tourist, the edge, DEATH himself, one giant turtle that swims through space and time, four giant elephants on top of the turtle, a world that is a disc and lies on top of the elephants, dragons that only exist if you believe in them, an uncountable collection of eights, vulnut vine, picture imps and magic that got to be dumped because it acts like radioactive toxic waste.
