    It's brilliant.

    It was the first Discworld book I ever read (I first read The Illustrated version of this book which also contains the second book 'The Light Fantastic' - unfortunately that has been lost - not by me.) I have recently bought this book again and now I intend to buy the entire Discworld collection (I have about 17 so far) and I also intend to read them all in order. I have read about 10 Discworld books (not in the correct order) and loved them all. This book is about Rincewind the wizard and his adventures with a tourist called Twoflower, but there is so much more to Discworld that I have found and am yet to find.

    Equal Rites for example is about a girl who is destined to become the first female Wizard, but the Wizards will not let her become a Wizard because she is female...

    I have recently finished reading Small Gods and that has a God who has been turned into a tortoise... (The Gods power lies in the amount of believers they have and Om is down to his last believer - Om's last believer is called Brutha.)

    You can find all the Discworld information you want at:

    Just search google for Discworld, Terry Pratchett or L-Space (L-Space means library space and it is a part of the Discworld story which allows a certain Librarian (he's called The Librarian - he's also an Orangutan) to travel to other libraries anywhere...)

    "L-space, short for library-space, is the ultimate portrayal of Pratchett's concept that the written word has powerful magical properties on the Discworld, and that in large quantities all books warp space and time around them. The principle of L-space revolves around a seemingly logical equation; it is an extension of the 'Knowledge is Power':
