A sourcerer is born in Discworld: a wizard so powerful that he makes all other magicians look like a bunch of fools in pointy hats. Now, suddenly, Discworld is brought to the brink of an all-out thaumaturgical war. The only hope for peace is Rincewind, the failed magician who has a risky plan to save the world. He enlists the help of several odd new characters, including Conina the barbarian hairdresser, Nijel the Destroyer, and a yuppie genie who sees lamps as a growth industry. This is the fifth book in the Discworld series.

    " I didn't enjoy this trip to the Discworld that much. I found it a bit too chaotic for me.I kept getting lost and confused by what I was reading. I do really like Rincewind though. And I loved the character of Conina. I hope she reappears in future books. "

    " Entertaining, but started to sorta drag in the middle. I could see where things were headed, and was a little impatient for them to get there. "

    " The adventures of Rincewind and Luggage continue. Sorcery returns to Unseen University and the Librarian plays a key role. We also meet War, Pestilence and Famine. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Greg Williamson | 1/23/2014

    " A bit of a shambles this one. A delightful shambles but a shambles nevertheless. Plenty of the clever humour that makes me keep reading Pratchett but the narrative flails all over the place and I found this a bit slow going. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kerr Cuhulain | 1/17/2014

    " I am a major Pratchett fan. Interesting story about the denizens of Unseen University. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 James | 4/11/2012

    " Another fantastic discworld novel. So far none of them have been less than great. Let's see if "Mort" keeps it up. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lara Eakins | 9/19/2009

    " I didn't get into this one as much as some of the other Discworld books, but it was still quite entertaining. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nevena | 8/9/2009

    " I really liked it! Rincewind and The Luggage are back, and the new array of characters is so colorful and fun. Truly enjoyed it, it comes next to Equal Rites as my favorite so far! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elizabeth Moffat | 4/25/2009

    " One of my favourites, loving the Luggage! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Winnie | 12/9/2007

    " Yet another quirky brilliant Rincewind adventure - great characters - side-splittingly funny and wonderful use of language - this is fantasy writing at its very best. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stanislav | 7/14/2007

    " It has luggage, LOTS of magic and even more sourcery. What more to expect form a discworld novel. However for some reason it seemed a bit drawn out so I'll reserve final judgement for later I guess. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Steve Fagerhaug | 5/19/2007

    " Still struggling to want to maybe like the lead character, Rincewind. Its hard to root for an anti-hero with so few redeeming qualities. I like pratchett in general, just not with this character so much. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Colleen | 7/2/2006

    " Overall, this book is quite funny. But as it moves, you see the obvious pain that Coin lives in. I did not want Coin to level Ankh-Morpork, nor did I want him to give up his staff. Sir Terry's ending is just so lovely - the perfect way for Coin to live. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gregory | 10/13/2003

    " Amazingly written, and as always the metaphors and adjectives Terry is using is nothing like those I could conjure up :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lianna | 3/10/2003

    " Rincewind is back! Fun read though I always get the feeling w/Terry Pratchett that the satire is zooming by so far above my head. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Craig Hughes | 8/31/2001

    " Re-reading all of the Discworld novels. "
