Eric (Discworld #9) - Terry Pratchett 7.00   172

You've heard of Faust? Well, this is Eric... and there's a difference.

Eric is fourteen; he is the Discworld's first-ever demonology hacker.

Unfortunately, he's not very good at it.

All he wants is his traditional three wishes granted – nothing fancy: to be immortal, to rule the world, and to have the most beautiful woman on the Discworld fall madly in love with him; all the usual things.

But instead of a nice, tractable demon, he raises Rincewind, probably the most incompetent wizard in the universe, and the extremely intractable and hostile travel accessory known simply as the Luggage.

With them on his side, Eric's in for a ride through space and time that is bound to make him wish – quite fervently – this time that he'd never been born.

ERIC: a hilarious Discworld romp, gloriously illustrated in full colour by Josh Kirby.

Discworld :: Series

Series contains 34 primary works and has 35 total works.

The Discworld series is a continuous history of a world not totally unlike our own, except that it is a flat disc carried on the backs of four elephants astride a giant turtle floating through space, and that it is peopled by, among others, wizards, dwarves, soldiers, thieves, beggars, vampires and witches. Within the history of Discworld, there are many individual stories which can be enjoyed in any order. But reading them in the sequence in which they were written can increase your enjoyment through the accumulation of all the fine detail that contributes to the teeming imaginative complexity of this brilliantly conceived world.
