I really enjoyed this book! I am a big fan of fantasy and humor and TP does not disappoint with the Color of Magic. I saw the movie before I read the book- and was surprised to see that the movie was pretty accurate (although obviously not as detailed as the book can be). Really liked reading this and look forward to exploring more novels from TP.

I'd always heard that in comparison to the later Discworld novels, The Colour of Magic kind of sucked. This isn't really true; it certainly doesn't suck, although it does come off as a lot more fluffy and lacking in plot than the later novels. The characters are much more one-dimensional, and there isn't the same kind of social commentary I've come to expect from Pratchett. This book is still, however, very, very funny, and I enjoyed it quite a lot. I'm sort of glad it wasn't my first Discworld novel, because I don't think I'd have been that impressed, but I still laughed out loud on several occasions.
