Review of 'The Light Fantastic'

The Light Fantastic by Terry Pratchett
2nd book in the 'Discworld' series

the_light_fantastic.jpg The direct sequel to “The Colour of Magic” this follows on from where the first novel left off. The story follows Rincewind and Twoflower as they continue their blundering around the various places of Discworld as the giant turtle the world rests on heads for certain (!) doom by being attracted to a star. The story is difficult to follow at the best of time but is full of the humour and wit to be expected in a Discworld novel (the Unseen university scenes are quite amusing as well as the scene with Twoflower demonstrating bridge to death and his cohorts). Well written though with only enough plot to make the book flow adequately.

Rating: “Really good but I have some issues”
