The Light Fantastic

itle: The Light Fantastic
Author: Terry Pratchett
Series: Discworld
Genre: Fantasy/ Comedy Fiction
Audience: Adult
Format: Kindle

From Goodreads: As it moves towards a seemingly inevitable collision with a malevolent red star, the Discworld has only one possible saviour.  Unfortunately, this happens to be the singularly inept and cowardly wizard called Rincewind, who was last seen falling off the edge of the world...

What I thought:   Continuing on from where The Colour of Magic  left off, The Light Fantastic follows Rincewind and Twoflower as they attempt to save the world from a collision with a red star. Only problem is, neither of the know they are trying to save the world, they are simply trying to save themselves! Through in an aging barbarian, a bunch of wizards who are trying to catch Rincewind and another wizard hell bent on seizing power for himself and you have classic Prtachett!

Recommended for: lovers of quality fantasy and any who want a good laugh.
