Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Terry Pratchett's profoundly irreverent novels are consistent number one bestsellers in England, where they have garnered him a revered position in the halls of parody next to 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...

About the Author

Terry Pratchett is one of the most popular living authors in the world. His first story was published when he was thirteen, and his first full-length book when he was twenty. He worked as a journalist to support the writing habit, but gave up the day job when the success of his books meant that it was costing him money to go to work.

Prachett's acclaimed novels are bestsellers in the U.S. and the United Kingdom and have sold more than twenty-one million copies worldwide. He lives in England, where he writes all the time. (It's his hobby as well.)

Twoflower, the first-ever tourist on the Disc, and his hired guide, the failed wizard Rincewind continue the tour they started in 'The Colour of Magic'. Eventually it becomes clear that the spell trapped in Rincewind's mind is the only thing that will save the Disc from running right in to the giant red star in the sky. It's up to Rincewind, Twohlower, the Luggage, an ancient Hero and a fair maiden to save all lof the occupants, and the Disc itself.

Delightfully hilarious. Terry Pratchett has crafted a book that offers a wonderfully zany philosophical fantasy novel. While this is the second book in the Discworld series, it builds and exceeds the first one. The back of the book compared him to Vonnegut, Twain, and Douglas Adams. I think Jonathan Swift should be added to that list because Pratchett is a master satirist. He deftly mocks everything from religion to the apocalypse to pop culture. If one hasn't read a Discworld novel before, I recommend The Light Fantastic.
