I don't know how to elaborate on that so I'll just share some of my favorite moments in Light Fantastic.
Snarky social commentary:
She is there, down below the mines and sea ooze and fake fossil bones put there by a Creator with nothing better to do than upset archaeologists and give them silly ideas.
Not for the first time she reflected that there were many drawbacks to being a swordswoman, not the least of which was that men didn't take you seriously until you'd actually killed them, by which time it didn't really matter anyway.
) But she was too big to be a thief, too honest to be an assassin, too intelligent to be a wife, and too proud to enter the only other female profession generally available.
Someone who spent his life Review to follow tomorrow, but tell me why have I waited so long to reread the Discworld books.
And the honest answer is, well for a while I didn't have a copy of any Discworld novel, due to the fact that (as I think I've mentioned before (oh no am I getting so old I'm repeating myself ?) ) I lost so so so many books in one of my house moves, Discworld novels amongst them.
And then somehow I forgot just how good the books were.
So The Light Fantastic picks up where The Colour of Magic left off and we find Rincwind, Twoflower and the Luggage in a precarious (as normal) situation.
In my view this is better than Colour of Magic in that it is less a series of quite disjointed stories and more a whole novel.
We meet various other characters that help/hinder/attack/welcome our intrepid trio as well as separating them and ultimately bringing it all b Reread with buddies!
I'm still very much enjoying these early Pratchett books, especially in mind that I'll be seeing a *lot* more of these folks in the near future.
And even if I'll mainly be focused on folks I haven't seen yet, anyway, I'm still enjoying what may as well be an overview primer of the whole Discworld universe.
That being said, I think Rincewind is given a bad rap in the series.
I love the hell out of him.
He's the ultimate bumbling idiot under the geas of a penultimate Eighth Spell, the casting of which will make or destroy the universe or something, and the making and breaking is ultimately left up only to him.
And he's a wizard with a hat that says "wizzard" on it.
to make sure people under Death made a great appearance in this story.
Small, but spot on.
This is absurdism at its best.
I enjoy The Color of Magic, but it was a slow read.
It didn't hook me completely into the series, but I did know that I wanted more of this.
I thought this story was fantastic.
I know it's only the 2nd one, but this story was great.
It's so funny and punny.
We see Rincewind hanging over the rim of the discworld.
I mean this whole story is so great.
Then we find out that the great turtle is heading toward a red star in space and it freaks the people of discworld right out.
Rincewind is chased all over the place.
He has one of the great 8 spells lodged in his head and it's needed to deal with this red star threat.
This book was what I had been wanting from this series and I get why it's so Put two of my favourite Discworld characters,the Luggage and Death, into the same book and I am obviously going to be happy! This was a reread of this book which I read the first time many years ago.
Pratchett obviously improved his writing as the series progressed and his books became more sophisticated, but these early works are still a delight.
I love the humour, the characters, the story and the sheer imagination of the man.
The world is poorer without him but thank goodness he left us so many books to enjoy.
I'm pretty sure people have told me about Pratchett and his Diskworld series before, usually working in the phrase "He's the Douglas Adams of fantasy" into the description.
But the problem was that I always felt that I had had enough of Adams after the third Hithiker's Guide to the Galaxy book, and whenever I scanned Pratchett's section in the bookstore I was immediately put off by not knowing where to start reading among the approximately five hundred thousand Diskworld books.
I'm glad I finally took the time to find out that these two books, The Colour of Magic and The Light Fantastic, jointly comprise the first tale in the series, and that they were definitely worth reading.
The Diskworld bo
"Inside every sane person, there's a madman struggling to get out.
That's what I've always thought.
No one goes mad quicker than a totally sane person.
The second installment in the Discworld series is a bigger, funnier delight.
One heck of a Laugh Out Loud read.
Something I consider very special in Sir Terry Pratchett's works is that many authors can pull off a joke every once in a while in their stories but Mr Pratchett managed to keep the whole thing comical, while at the time satirical.
Not once did I not grin or snort out loud.
In The Colour of Magic, Rincewind w Reading Sir Terry Pratchett’s Discworld series makes me smile.
Because of his writing I invented the "SmileOmeter" which measures smiles per book.
Pratchett always scores high.
Three years after Terry Pratchett published The Color of Magic, the first Discworld book, he published the second, The Light Fantastic, having decided convincingly that this was a worthwhile project.
Though the action in The Light Fantastic takes over immediately following the events in the first book, Rincewind has fallen off of the edge of the "You still love Terry Pratchett, after all these years?"
Gandalf, Return of the Jedi.
Jokes aside, my teen years were marked by edginess, heavy metal, nihilism and Terry Pratchett.
I think the latter was never a phase; he is an author that will always be in my heart and in my head, providing bellyacheinducing laughs whenever Death has an identity crisis (which is always) or when Nanny Ogg is trying to explain to her seemingly infinite children who their real fathers are(and lying through her teeth).
Even though Rincewind and Twoflower aren't my favourites, they still hold a special place in my heart because they were in the first Pratchett books I read.
