Twoflower was a tourist, the first ever seen on the Discworld. Tourist, Rincewind decided, meant idiot. Somewhere on the frontier between thought and reality exists the Discworld, a parallel time and place which might sound and smell very much like our own, but which looks completely different. It plays by different rules. Certainly it refuses to succumb to the quaint notion that universes are ruled by pure logic and the harmony of numbers. But just because the Disc is different doesn't mean that some things don't stay the same. Its very existence is about to be threatened by a strange new blight: the arrival of the first tourist, upon whose survival rests the peace and prosperity of the land. But if the person charged with maintaining that survival in the face of robbers, mercenaries and, well, Death is a spectacularly inept wizard, a little logic might turn out to be a very good idea... The Colour of Magic is the first novel in Terry Pratchett's acclaimed Discworld series, which has become one of the most popular and celebrated sequences in English literature.… (meer)

This is very early (the earliest, really) Discworld, and as such it is, while still quite good, not great. so... 3 stars it is. ( )

I bought this combined hardcover edition to replace my worn paperbacks. The stories, of course, are wonderful. This is Pratchett, after all. Rereading these earliest Discworld books after having read all the others reminds us of how the setting and characters evolved from their beginnings as comparatively simple comic fantasy. They ended up being much more than that.

My one issue with this edition is the editing. It appears as though the text was digitized by an optical character reader, and no one verified the accuracy of the outcome. There are several errors. Commas turned into periods, letters were misread, (in one the letter 'm' was turned into 'in', for example). This is very shoddy and, I felt, an insult to the story and to the memory of the author. Bad job, Colin Smythe Limited. It's not like the copy I bought is a first edition. It's at least the fourth reprint. You've had time to fix this stuff. ( )

The Colour of Magic and The Light Fantastic are the first two novels of the Diskworld by Terry Pratchett.The Diskworld series is a must read for anyone who likes to laugh while reading great stories about very sympathetic, and sometimes very silly people. Terry Pratchett's wit is very similar to Douglas Adams, but he has written about 50 books. His imagination seems endless, as do his characters.Don't walk away from this series thinking it is only fluff, Pratchett's universe, though often silly, is well thought out, consistent and compelling. Frequently his books take a satirical riff on our own world, but it is never mean or nasty. These books exude joy over the quirks of the world and of human frailty and faults.Go read it. If you don't like it, you don't have to pay me for this review. ( )

The Colour of Magic is a comic fantasy and is the first book in Terry Pratchett's Discworld series, set in a disc-shaped world on the back of four elephants standing on the back of a giant turtle. Regular readers of Fantasy books, will enjoy Pratchett’s writing. The Colour of Magic is one of only nine Discworld novels to be divided into sections or chapters, the others being Pyramids, Going Postal, Making Money, and the five books for younger readers, specifically The Amazing Maurice and his Educated Rodents and the four Tiffany Aching books, The Wee Free Men, A Hat Full of Sky, Wintersmith and I Shall Wear Midnight.
