What the community says about The Color of Magic (Discworld)
- "The Color of Magic is an interesting book about a mediocre wizard who becomes a tour guide. Sounds boring, I know, but the plot thickens with robbers, mercenaries, and death which defies the normalities of the world we know. It's worth a read, I think, and I did enjoy it for what it was."
- "Terry Pratchett is a natural born storyteller that has developed an entire world for his likable characters that include a failed wizard and misunderstood villains. His imaginative powers shine via the creation of disc world, a flat planed place that exists on the back of four elephants. Pratchett delivers a uniquely blended mix of fantasy and humor that is sure to delight."
- "The story starts off with telling us what's so special about Discworld. Disworld is actually a flat plan, a 'disc', if you will, resting on the back of four giant elephants, which are themselves standing on the shell of an even more giant turtle crawling through space. Things only get more ridiculous from there. Pratchett introduces us to two great characters. The first, Rincewind, is a washed out drop out of the local wizard college, who a knack for both languages and finding his way to trouble. The second, Twoflower, is a foreigner bored with his life as an insurance salesman, who comes to Rincewinds city as tourist looking for adventure, and willing to pay for it handsomely. Together, the two traipse across the Disc on all sorts of wacky adventures."
