Author: Terry Pratchett
Published: 1983 by Harper
Synopsis: The Color of Magic is Terry Pratchett’s maiden voyage through the now-legendary land of Discworld. This is where it all begins — with the tourist Twoflower and his wizard guide, Rincewind.
On a world supported on the back of a giant turtle (sex unknown), a gleeful, explosive, wickedly eccentric expedition sets out. There’s an avaricious but inept wizard, a naive tourist whose luggage moves on hundreds of dear little legs, dragons who only exist if you believe in them, and of course THE EDGE of the planet…
Terry Pratchett is by far the funniest author I’ve ever had the experience of reading. His stories are unique and often cleverly illogical. This is the most quotable and memorable series I’ve read to date. With 40 novels in the Discworld series, Terry Pratchett has established himself as one of the most prolific comedians of the fantasy genre and received a Knighthood in the process.
Sadly, Sir Terry passed away earlier in 2015.
