This is where it all began. This is the place where the magic starts. This is the very first Discworld novel written way back in the mists of time (well, 1985). This is The Colour of Magic. Looking back, it's not hard to see why it gave birth to such a successful and long-running series, although if you're completely honest, The Colour of Magic is not as enjoyable as many of the titles which were to follow. Pratchett's style is still very much in its infancy so whilst there is much to like about this first entry into the Discworld, fans who are only familiar with the later adventures might find it a little hard going. The Colour of Magic introduced ... Read the complete review

Back in university one of my housemates introduced me to fantasy novels which I had never thought to read. One such author she recommended I read was Terry Pratchett and told me that he was a British author and wrote very funny books about a fictional place called Discworld. She borrowed me the first Discworld novel entitled ‘The Colour of Magic’ and I began to read it. After reading about ten pages I gave up deciding that I could not stand his style of writing and was extremely confused with the novel already. Well three years later and after reading a few reviews on Terry Pratchett books I decided to give this novel a go again and this is what I ... Read the complete review

This is the first of many discworld book's and indeed the first time that we are introduced to Rincewind. this is the book that set the standard for the discworld and although many of his other books have been better than this none were quite as original. The use of rincewind alway's makes an improvement to the discworld books and this is no exception, I gaurantee that you will laugh at this book, as it contains the homour and flair for originality that are all things Pratchett. ...

'The Colour of Magic' is the first of the now infamous "Discworld" series. Ten years since originally published, the book is still attracting new readers - me amongst them - who have gone on to purchase each and every one of the series. If you've never read Pratchett before, this is definately a great place to start. A place where the world is flat, and people who tried to show it was round were proven wrong years ago. It's carried through the cosmos on the back of four giant elephants, the magnitude of whom is so great that simply trying to imagine it makes your head spin. Even more mind-boggling, these elephants stand on top of ... Read the complete review

Hello everyone, it only seems right for me to reintroduce myself. Im loulou and Ive currently moved to York to study History at University. Although University seems like a lot of hard work I've some how managed to get myself on a course that gives me plenty of free time... hense I've taken up reading again. I have always been a fan of sci-fi and fantasy stories so when my dad introduced me to his old Terry Pratchett books I figuered I'd give them a try. The Colour of Magic is the first story in The Discworld Series of books, a series which focuses on a world nt unlike our own except its a flat disc being held up by four elephants standing on the ...
