Color of Magic, The

Terry Pratchett
Terry Pratchett's profoundly irreverent novels are consistent number one bestsellers in England, where they have garnered him a revered position in the halls of parody next to Mark Twain, Kurt Vonnegut, Douglas Adams, and Carl Hiaasen.The Color of Magic is Terry Pratchett's maiden voyage through the now-legendary land of Discworld. This is where it all begins--with the tourist Twoflower and his wizard guide, Rincewind.

Okay, first of all I would like to say that I love ALL Terry Pratchett's books, so I am only going to highlight certain ones. I enjoy English humor for one and the way that his hapless universe somehow gets by. To begin The Color of Magic we meet the failed wizard (or ���������Wizzard���������) Rincewind, and the Discworld's first ever tourist, Twoflower in the city of Ankh-Morpork. Rincewind learns that being a tour guide is more dangerous than staying in Ankh-Morpork under the Patrician's "benevolent" gaze. Feeding the tourists strange appetite for what Rincewind considers everyday things while keeping him from destroying the whole of the Disc maybe more than Rincewind bargained for.

Funny, but more a series of gags than the sort of satirical novel he's written more recently. Many readers suggest that one not start Discworld here, just because it isn't so strong. Still, I'm something of a completionist at heart.
