'Panic?' said Rincewind hopefully. He always held that panic was the best means of survival.

When the very fabric of time and space are about to be put through the wringer - in this instance by the imminent arrival of a very large and determinedly oncoming meteorite - circumstances require a very particular type of hero. Sadly what the situation does not need is a singularly inept wizard, still recovering from the trauma of falling off the edge of the world. Equally it does not need one well-meaning tourist and his luggage which has a mind of its own. Which is a shame because that's all there is...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So much fun! The second Discworld novel picks up where The Colour of Magic left off. It is hard to put down, and I've gotten strange looks when reading it in public (I couldn't stop laughing). Read it!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly enjoyable The second installment in the Discworld universe doesn't disappoint. It might help to read The Colour of Magic first, since it sets much of the action in motion. Such fun to read!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than the first! I enjoyed this sequel over the first novel in Rincewind's story. Its humor is frequent and effective, the plot is simple but well paced, and the characters are heartfelt and amiable. It made me sad Mr Pratchett is passed on. His light shines fantastically in this Discworld series entry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another great read.... Again, Terry Pratchett has displayed his brilliance in the Discworld series. Book number 2 reads even MORE like Monty Python.... a wonderful, clever series.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Interesting and amusing. An excellent mental exercise for the imagination! Amusing and confusing all at the same time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for a sunny afternoon Typical Pratchett, his life observations are once again translated brilliantly.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Pratchett's early works One of Pratchett's earliest novels, The Light Fantastic is a must-read for the Discworld fanatic. It will give you important back-story and help you as you journery through Ankh-Morpork and other areas on the Disc. However, unlike most of Pratchett's novels, this one doesn't make you laugh out loud: rather, it elicits a grin here or there.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from better then the first This was a much better fantasy then the first book. I would recommend this to other readers. Maybe they just keep getting better.
