Book Three 2013, The Colour of Magic

To tell you the true reading this book was a long thing coming. The first edition I bought consisted of a hardcover edition that contain this book and three more, well it vanish without a trace and mind you it was not a small book . The second edition I bought was the trade-paperback, well one day it was raining really hard and the roof started to leak, exactly over the book. So they say that third time’s the charm, so I decided to read it as an e-book.

 I was afraid that maybe my nook will caught fire , but I had to risk it. 

This is the first novel of the long running series of  Discworld which now has more that 39 books. Written by Terry Pratchett, gentleman and knight of the british empire, it mixes humour and satire with epic fantasy.

It follows the adventure of the incompetent wizard named Rincewind and how involuntarily becomes a turist guide, a new term for the inhabitats of the city Ankh-Morpork, of Twoflower a rich visitor from the Agatean Empire. 

Without know it they become part of a board game played by the gods themselves, this journey takes them across the Discworld. Facing soul-eating demigods, dragons that live in an upside-down mountain, hydrophobic wizards and almost being cast-out of this flat world in order to know the sex of the turtle that’s carrying it.

In all is an amazingly written and funny book. It was worth the time it took to actually read it.

So that’s 4,334 pages down, 45,408 pages to go

Total Pages 115,914 pages

No one ever reads the same book. We all react to the written word differently. The following are my opinions regarding the books I have read.
