The Colour of Magic

By Terry Pratchett - Rating: 8/10

I’m continuously on the lookout for a new fantasy series to fill my Kingkiller Chronicles/Song of Fire and Ice void. I’ve heard of the Discworld series but have avoided it because I thought that it might have something to do with the boring-ass Ringworld books. Well, it doesn’t. It’s actually a comedic take on the fantasy genre, somewhat like Hitchhiker’s Guide. Don’t expect laugh-out-loud funny, but Pratchett does an admirable job injecting in-jokes and turning fantasy clichés on end. I don’t know if I can handle 36 more of these books, but, thankfully, they are short, so I think I will give a few more a try.
