    I want to try and review both this and The Light Fantastic The Graphic Novel independently from the actual novels, but I think being such a big fan of Terry Pratchett s books it is a bit of an impossibility to entirely split them away from each other.The things I liked about this book 1 The artwork it really is quite pretty in most cases, I especially like the use of purple through the pages concerning the Temple of Bel Shamharoth 2 The story the vast majority of it is there I was worried that i [...]

    This one is for those who believe that all peoples are equal and love a good laugh.

    I haven t read any of the Discworld novels, so the graphic novel was my introduction to series This is a fantasy adventure story that takes place on a flat spherical earth like planet pillared on four elephants and in turn they are on top of a turtle It is centred on the calamities of a tourist, his faux wizard tour guide and an adherent walking chest Overall, I thought it was okay, but the story wasn t as compelling as I thought it would be I found it to be a bit random at times and in some par [...]

    Although I find Terry s books relatively hard to read, it s always worth it.Terry Pratchett tells stories rapidly but with great detail His characters are elaborate and interesting and play a part in than just one of his books, they often appear as secondary characters or are mentioned in other books So I already heard of Rincewind, the main in this novel, but this was the first time I read about his story.Rincewind is cynical about almost everything that happens And it seems there is a lot to [...]

    The first Discworld novel The novel that started the most hilarious series I ve read I had to read this one, to figure out how it all started The creativity that allows for the plots, the amazingly strange and funny characters and the reinvention of our culture is the key to the wonderful writing of Terry Pratchett That said, this is not one of his best books It s funny, but for the first time reading a Discworld novel I wasn t laughing the whole time But it s a good start, Rincewind, Death my f [...]

    Saw this on the shelf thought I would see how the great Terry Pratchett read in graphic novel form The graphic novel was OK, but it really just made me want to go back and read the novel itself Due to the nature of the medium, much of what makes Pratchett so enjoyable, his word play and use of language, is lost.It has been a long time since I started the discworld series although Sourcery was the first novel I read and so it was interesting going back to the beginning I was reminded that I never [...]

  7. Aldrea Alien says:
    This was a pleasant, light and, strangely enough, entertaining to read than the book it s based off Certainly amusing enough to quietly while away an hour.Some of the characters weren t quite how I d imagined them, in fact some of the outfits look a little goofy, but I d watched the Colour of Magic miniseries, read the book and flicked through the Art of Discworld well before finding this, so I suppose that is to be expected But the backgrounds scenes were wonderfully done and on for the story [...]

  8. Kirrus says:
    To be clear, this is the second time I ve read this book Just re reading the series from start to finish, or rather, re listening You can tell it s one of the early books in the series, but it lands with a bang, and rolls on from there Enjoyable story, comedy whilst poking fun at the world.I admit, I giggled than once.

  9. Pete Brown says:
    This made me so happy Even the ending made me happy.I won t give anything away but most of you have probably read it already.I also got terribly distracted and forgot to check this in before I started the next one.

  10. Aaron Caskey says:
    Something of a dissapointment, the graphic novel lacks so much of Pratchett s wit At least the art is pretty good.

  11. Whatsupchuck says:
    My first introduction to the world invented by Pratchett I found it amusing and clever I loved the imagination and humor throughout.

  12. Nyonie says:
    Ah I don t know, maybe it s just me but I feel Pratchett s humor stands out best in written words, where everything is left to the imagination, than in a graphic novel.


  13. Karen says:
    I generally like graphic novels but this did nothing for me at all I am a big Terry Pratchett fan, but will stick to his novels from now on, so that I can use my own imagination.

  14. Paul Moffett says:
    A quick, funny book I find Pratchett fun in smallish chunks but his madcap gets tiring after awhile.
