You've heard of Faust - this is Eric. There's a difference.

Eric is 14, lives on the famed and magical Discworld, and is the first ever demonology hacker. Fortunately, he doesn't succeed in raising any devils, but he does raise Rincewind (the most incompetent wizard in the universe) and the Luggage (the world's most dangerous travel accessory).

When Eric turns them loose on an unprotected world, the idea is that Rincewind will grant him his three rather adolescent wishes. You know, the usual three - live forever, rule the world, meet the most beautiful woman who ever lived. Simple, really.

Getting marooned at dawn of Time, changing the future, and meeting history's most embarrassing god is only the start. Creating life on the Discworld is a mere detail. Because Rincewind ends up going through Hell. Literally.

Listener Opinions

    " Rincewind! I wondered where you had gone to! And demonologist Eric thinks you're a demon summoned to grant him wishes? Oh, that can't bode well... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Darla | 2/6/2014

    " (Genre:fantasy) In this early discworld novel, 14 year old Eric tries to summon a demon with the hopes of controlling the demon's power. Unfortunately, he summons the bumbling wizard Rincewind instead (and the luggage!), and none of his wishes are turning out the way he had hoped. Entertaining read with some very funny moments, this is classic Pratchett. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carl Sheppard | 1/3/2014

    " Funny take on the devil granting three wishes to some acne faced kid. Quick read and worth it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dwight | 12/21/2013

    " I'm going to have to give Terry Pratchett another go because this book was mostly disorienting. I got some of the jokes, but I'm guessing this isn't the best book to jump into the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ed P | 12/14/2013

    " Seemed shorter than most Discworld novels, but solid. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Anna | 11/23/2013

    " To be happy! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gretchen Ingram | 11/19/2013

    " A short but funny book- and I have to say I love the Luggage!!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tim Erlin | 11/14/2013

    " If you like Pratchett and have a couple of hours on a plane to kill, it's not a bad way to spend your time. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Vicky Massingham | 11/13/2013

    " A great book by a fab author! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sschallerxx | 11/8/2013

    " I guess this was released as a stand alone book, i read it as part of a collection of rincewind novels and at first thought this was a novella or something. didn't seem as finished as most of his books. not horrible, but not at the top of his game either. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Gideonleek | 10/21/2013

    " Eric the ninth discworld is by far the worst of felt rather empty and unfinished definetly not worth the money. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Cody Gillespie-Lynch | 8/9/2013

    " Bad place to begin series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michael Flanagan | 9/20/2012

    " Short but packed full with goodness. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Maddalena | 9/6/2012

    " I don't really like Rincewind books in general, and this one might my least favourite of them (though I really liked hell XD) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Pope Guilty | 4/20/2012

    " It's short and has more going on than Rincewind just running away from everything, which makes it one of the two decent Rincewind novels. The solid parody of Faust and cutting satire of modern business (and this before Dilbert!) make for an excellent book that doesn't overstay its welcome. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rhaegar | 3/27/2012

    " My first Pratchett book, I was like 10 years old at the time and I couldn't stop laughing at the parrots antics. :) "

    " So far the best book by sir Pratchett I had the pleasure of reading... well, second best, after the Mort:) "

    " I can always count on a Discworld novel to make me laugh. "

    " This was fun and a very quick read. This guy is a genius. My office often feels like this version of hell. "

    " Nice quick read, very interesting way of using time travel. Two thumbs up! "
