I haven't reviewed this because I read it so long ago that all I can remember is I loved it. I'll take our very old and battered copy (bought in 1987) to the hospice this weekend when I go with Celyn and see if I can't refresh my memory. RIP, Sir Terry.

Before picking it up, I'd heard that The Colour of Magic was funny. Now that can mean just about anything because, let's face it, comedy is the most subjective of arts. Funny is a deeply personal thing. The "funny peculiar" and the "funny ha-ha" might not be the same from person to person or even to Leggi tutto

And so it begins … Sir Terry Pratchett’s wildly imaginative Discworld series begins with the 1983 publication of The Color of Magic. I have been reading science fiction and fantasy for a long time and somehow I managed to not read any of his works until I came in late to the party. A friend suggested Leggi tutto
I will officially be reading the entire Discworld series!
This must be the exception that proves the rule. For years I’ve been adamantly advocating reading series in publication order, whether a coherent story or a set of standalones.
