The Colour Of Magic (Discworld Novel 1)

Written by Terry Pratchett

Part of the Discworld Novels Series

The Colour Of Magic (Discworld Novel 1) Synopsis

In the beginning there was...a turtle. Somewhere on the frontier between thought and reality exists the Discworld, a parallel time and place which might sound and smell very much like our own, but which looks completely different. Particularly as it's carried though space on the back of a giant turtle (sex unknown). It plays by different rules. But then, some things are the same everywhere. The Disc's very existence is about to be threatened by a strange new blight: the world's first tourist, upon whose survival rests the peace and prosperity of the land. Unfortunately, the person charged with maintaining that survival in the face of robbers, mercenaries and, well, Death, is a spectacularly inept wizard...

The Colour Of Magic (Discworld Novel 1) Press Reviews

One of the best and funniest English authors alive * Independent * Like Jonathan Swift, Pratchett uses his other world to hold up a distorting mirror to our own, and like Swift he is a satirist of enormous talent... incredibly funny... compulsively readable * The Times * He would be amusing in any form and his spectacular inventiveness makes the Discworld series one of the perennial joys of modern fiction * Mail on Sunday *
