fantastic first book in the the Sunday Times bestselling Science of
Discworld series, fully revised and updated
a wizardly experiment goes adrift, the wizards of Unseen University find
themselves with a pocket universe on their hands: Roundworld, where neither
magic nor common sense seems to stand a chance against logic. The universe, of
course, is our own. And Roundworld is Earth. As the wizards watch their accidental
creation grow, we follow the story of our universe from the primal singularity
of the Big Bang to the Internet and beyond.
this original Terry Pratchett story (with intervening chapters from Jack Cohen

how the richness of a universe based on rules has led to a complex world and at
least one species that tried to get a grip of what was going on. Download and start listening now!
