The Great A'Tuin, the heroic turtle who supports the weight of the entire Discworld, not to mention four giant elephants, swims through the galaxy day and night with the burden of being the only creature who knows exactly where the universe is going. Philosophers have long debated where this is, and are due to find out in about 2 months. Shall they worry? Well, they are on a collision course with a malevolent red star and only one person can save Discworld. Unfortunately, it's the cowardly wizard, Rincewind, who was last seen falling off the edge of the planet. This is the second book in the Discworld series.

    " Ebook. Very entertaining. I was actually laughing out loud at multiple parts. Definitely recommend for anyone who enjoyed The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy series. I will read more of this series whenever I am in the mood for something funny and entertaining. "

    " Took me a bit to get through this, just because of life and such, but I really enjoyed it. I love Pratchett's humor. I want my own traveling luggage! I think that was my favorite character! So much personality for a wooden box. It is sapient pearwood, though! =) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shahrun | 12/15/2013

    " I began this book with a big sense of dread, having not really enjoyed The Colour of Magic. I found it a bit slow to get into. But By the end of the book found I had enjoyed the journey of this book, built up a relationship with the characters and was satisfied at the end. I now feel I can rejoin the DiscWorld with out such a heavy heart. "

    " Meh. It was all right. Entertaining, but not much too it. It at least had a central plot, unlike the last one. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ntina P | 10/21/2013

    " I first learned about Terry Pratchett and Discworld from this book. Since then Terry Pratchett became one of my favorite authors and read many of his books! I just love his sense of humor! The Light Fantastic is the second book from Discworld and you should read the Color of Magic first because it continues the story of Rincewind and Twoflower in this hilarious and totally crazy world where you can find talking trees, walking luggage, an old barbarian hero, insane wizards and druids and of course Death! I think this book is better than the first one even funnier, clever and crazy. I had so much fun reading it I couldn't stop laughing! Loved it! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Stephanie Griffin | 10/4/2013

    " Fabulous job of narration by Nigel Planer enhances this story of the continuing adventures of Rincewind. He even encounters talking trees! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Daniel Goh | 8/10/2013

    " Fantastic read... Pratchett's a genius. Enough said! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Katie | 8/1/2013

    " Liked it more then the first one. It has the characters growing into the ones we love. The ending was good as well. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rachael | 7/21/2013

    " This is, first and foremost, a celebration of language. Yes, it's funny and satirical, but most importantly this is a study of the wonderful things that can be done with words. And I love it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Muppetjones | 5/30/2013

    " My third Discworld book. Very much enjoyed it. I love the character of Death, and I'm enjoying Rincewind even more. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michel | 11/13/2012

    " I once again enjoyed Pratchett's style of combining high fantasy with low humour -- and vice-versa. An excellent conclusion to the story of Rincewind, Twoflower, and the Luggage, all on a disc world, held up by four elephants, on the back of a giant turtle hurtling through space. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Josh Liller | 7/10/2012

    " More Rincewind & Twoflower silliness. Also featuring Cohen the Barbarian! More fun stuff, about the same level as Color of Magic. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ting | 5/18/2012

    " LOL fun!!! Enjoyed it immensely and can't wait to read the next book. Terry Pratchett is a genius! "

    " what happens to bring back the world from then end of chaos "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rob | 4/6/2012

    " Read the first half about 10 times before I finally had a chance to read it all the way through and the ending did not disappoint :). "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Niall | 3/21/2012

    " The story of Rincewind and Twoflower continue the misadventure started in The Colour of Magic. As said in other reviews, this book is more focused than the first, and the narrative benefits for this. I first read this book about 20 years ago, and it is as enjoyable now as it was then. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sally | 8/10/2009

    " A satisfying conclusion to the story begun in The Color of Magic (Discworld Bk. 1) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Suzanne Auckerman | 5/15/2008

    " It is interesting as I am not reading these in order, but I do enjoy them. Hurray for Rincewind and I loved the baby turtles. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Fiona Robson | 10/26/2006

    " I know it's taken me way too long to get around to reading the 2nd Discworld book, but I thoroughly enjoyed every bit of it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Savannah | 5/5/2006

    " This is hilarious for kids!!!!!!!!!! I read some to my sisters and it had them in stitches. It is (I agree with one of the serious people who wrote a review) very much a continuation from the other book (which I haven't read). I recommend this book to absolutely everyone with a sense of humour!!!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marci | 4/21/2005

    " What a fun book to reread. I've enjoyed this more in rereading than I did from the initial read. Pratchett for the win! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 The Flooze | 3/23/2005

    " Terry Pratchett, how do I love thee. I'm perusing through this one again before I watch the movie. No matter how often I read it, the man has me laughing out loud. You just can't go wrong with Discworld! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Diana Toole | 4/21/2003

    " This will ALWAYS remain my favorite Pratchett book -- simply because it was the first one I read. And it was responsible for my falling in love with a writer's style. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kerr Cuhulain | 2/15/2003

    " Easily the most satisfying ending to a story that I've read in a *long* time. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Anthony Faber | 7/15/2001

    " A reread. The second Discworld novel. You should read "The Color of Magic" first. British humorous fantasy. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stephen | 7/18/2000

    " 4.0 stars. I really liked this second installment of the Discworld series though I didn't enjoy it quite as much as The Color of Magic. Still it is very good with some laugh outloud moments. "
