The Colour of Magic by Terry Pratchett

My rating: 5 out of 5

The Colour of MagicThe story

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 Magic 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.

 

My take on it

The first of Terry Pratchett’s novels and the one that got me hooked. Wonderful detail and world-building.

It introduces Cohen the Barbarian, now over 100 years old but still keen on fighting and chasing girls. And when he catches them? Nothing like soft female hands for rubbing liniment on aching legs!

Death is a scary 7-foot skeleton that envies humans for their domesticity. He tries so hard to copy them but never gets it quite right…

So many memorable characters nestled in one of the most complete and amazing worlds you’ll ever immerse yourself in.Treat yourself and start reading the Discworld novels. You won’t regret it!!

The books are becoming harder to find, particularly with the stunning artwork displayed in the cover above.
