I have tried to read this book several times before, but now that it makes an appearance on my list of books to read (along with many Terry Pratchett ones - argh!), I thought I would give it a real proper attempt.

Actually, on this reading, it was nowhere near as bad as I had thought. Some of the satirical moments are amusing, and I particularly like the conversations between Rincewind and Twoflower - I can almost picture them in my head, and the relationship between the two is excellent.

For some reason, the world itself doesn’t resonate with me so much. I don’t know why because other magical lands, such as in Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings, are much more vivid in my head. I don’t doubt my imagination, but sometimes the descriptions were just a little off for me.

Still, I was super impressed to get to the finish after so many false starts, and I would even go so far as to say I enjoyed most of it. Now, though, I am simply left wanting some luggage with little feet.
