I should have known not to pick up the first Discworld novel (The Colour of Magic) when I did, I should have known I would have gotten hooked – imagine my surprise when I found out there was over forty novels in this series! My God.
Anyways, I loved this book, but who doesn’t love Terry Pratchett? He’s weird, funny, utterly random in his humour and, just when you think he couldn’t get any crazier, he says something so completely profound. The interactions between the two main characters (Rincewind and Twoflower) are hilarious, but it’s worth reading for the descriptions of the Luggage alone. 4/5
