The Colour of Magic

by Terry Pratchett
Release date: 1983
Type: speculative fiction
Genres: fantasy
Tags: humor, tv series

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...

The wackiest and most original fantasy since Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy.

I actually read this book (or more like half of it) in Finnish a long time ago and decided to give the Discworld another try in the original language. Although this fist novel of the series is relatively short book, it's not a fast read, at least if you want to catch all the jokes. And there's plenty. I never thought Death could be so funny. I would have given this maybe 3,5 stars if it was possible, but ended up choosing 4. I will bankrupt myself purchasing the rest of the series.
