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.
