The Colour of Magic

ebook

'His spectacular inventiveness makes the Discworld series one of the perennial joys of modern fiction' Mail on Sunday
____________________

Somewhere on the frontier between thought and reality exists the Discworld, a parallel time and place which might sound and smell like our own, but which looks completely different. Particularly as it's carried through space on the back of a giant turtle (sex unknown).

If you're new to the Discworld don't worry, you're not alone . . . Twoflower is the Discworld's first tourist, he's exceptionally naive and about to get himself into an array of dangerous and fantastical situations on his travels.

And if that didn't sound fateful enough, it's the spectacularly inept wizard, Rincewind who is charged with safely chaperoning Twoflower and his Luggage (a walking suitcase that has half a mind of its own and a homicidal attitude to anything threatening) during his visit.

Safe to say chaos ensues...

The Discworld novels can be read in any order but The Colour of Magic is the first Discworld book. It is also the starting point in the Wizards collection, followed by The Light Fantastic.
