An astonishing book
The colour of magic is Terry Pratchett's first Discworld novel that indulges the reader in an adventure set on a flat disc supported by four giant elephants which ride on the back of an even more enormous turtle.
Twoflower, Discworld's first tourist, arrives in the city of Ankh Morpork with his menacing chest following him everywhere with its countless feet. The newly-arrived foreigner hires Rincewind, the inept wizard, as his tour guide. Unfortunately, a fight over the tourist's wealth causes a fire which spreads through the entire town forcing both Rincewind and Twoflower to leave. Bound by destiny, they set on a journey together encountering Death, trolls, dragons and Krullians.
Terry Pratcehett wonderfully describes nature and the places the two main characters visit helping the reader to never be lost in this magnificent fantasy novel. The book is full of humor which will envelop you and bring you to a bright and completely new world.
This book breaks the boundaries of real life filling you with glee. It is a must read and I recommend this book to all who are interested in the adventures and misfortunes of Rincewind, the failed wizard, and Twoflower, the tourist. by Miroslav Shtarbev
"This book is awsome. When it arrived I looked at it and put it at the bottom of the queue. 2 months later I decided what the hell, and read it. I was suprised to find that it was one of the best books I've ever read." by a Book Depository customer
