The Light Fantastic, . Part of Discworld series by Terry Pratchett. A large, but not particularly impressive, book. Other books in the University's libraries had covers inlaid with rare jewels and fascinating wood, or bound with dragon skin. This one was just a rather tatty leather.

The Light Fantastic, . It looked the sort of book described in library catalogues as 'slightly foxed', although it would be more honest to admit that it looked as though it had been badgered, wolved and possibly beared as well. Metal clasps held it shut.

The second book in Terry Pratchett's Discworld Series, The Light Fantastic sees Rincewind and Twoflower back from falling off the edge of the world.

Terry Pratchett does a wonderful job of maintaining the integrity of his absurd world and his characters while keeping everything fresh and creative. The humor is wrapped around serious themes. The characters have fantasy aspects, but they illustrate many universal truths of human nature. I cannot read too many of them in a row, but when I need something different, a Discworld novel is the perfect metaphorical palate refresher.

The Light Fantastic book. A great book that showcases the amazing talent that Terry Pratchett had. A more than solid 5 star read and already a favourite of 2019.

The Light Fantastic is the second Discworld novel by Terry Pratchett and picks up the story that was begun in The Colour of Magic. A red star has appeared in the sky and the Discworld is heading right towards it. There is only one person who can save the world; but unfortunately this is the rather inept and cowardly wizard called Rincewind who was last seen falling of the edge of the world. As The Light Fantastic starts we are once again re-united with Rincewind the wizard, Twoflower the tourist and of course, his luggage. The writing style is the same as The Colour of Magic with the emphasis.

The second Discworld novel. 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.

Well. Down the rabbit hole and into a maze of twisty little passages. Book 1 (The Colour of Magic) (spoiler alert) ended with Rincewind and Twoflower tumbling off the edge of the disk into space, toward the shell of the Great A'Tuin. In book 2, (The Light Fantastic), Rincewind and Twoflower eventually land...back on the disk. This is never explained in more than a "wibbly wobbly timey wimey" way. But there's a new and sinister-looking red star in the sky. The wizards at Unseen University fear this new portent, especially as it seems to upset the Octavo. They believe they need to get Rincewind back as soon as possible to reunite all eight of the original Creator's spells--one of which is lodged in Rincewind's head due to a prank he pulled in his student days at the university. Rincewind would like nothing more than to oblige, but between being lost and waylaid, it looks like the red star, which keeps getting closer and closer, will arrive before Rincewind does. The ending is, in my opinion, not suitable for young children. People turn into scary monsters, people die--it ends well, of course, but that climactic scene is not exactly suitable bedtime reading. But it's a super tale. Will Rincewind arrive in time? Will Twoflower unwittingly save the day, or be lost in the fray? And what of the luggage? Will it ever be seen again? Read the book.

Terry Pratchett has written a classic tale of heroes on a quest to save the world. Just kidding! It’s Terry Pratchett and Discworld and there is nothing traditional about any of it. The pace is mad cap, the language is full of puns, the heroes are unlikely, the settings and sidekicks are even more unlikely, and the fun is nonstop. It should be impossible to write such pure nonsense that ends up making great sense. Once again, Terry Pratchett demonstrates how he is the master of a fantasy sub-genre that probably belongs to him alone. Clever, witty, rapid-fire. The Discworld novels fall into different categories: Tiffany Aching, Rincewind, the three witches, Sam Vines and the guards, and Death. This book is a novel of Rincewind. Each book focuses on one of them, although they cross over and pop up in each others' books all the time. It is best if you start from the beginning of a grouping and work your way through, otherwise you'll miss a lot of inside jokes, references, etc. There are charts on the internet that will show you the groupings. Having said that, I read Wee Free Men first, and it made me a fan. You can trust Terry Pratchett to not be too linear and to not be very predictable. Terry Pratchett does a wonderful job of maintaining the integrity of his absurd world and his characters while keeping everything fresh and creative. The humor is wrapped around serious themes. The characters have fantasy aspects, but they illustrate many universal truths of human nature. I cannot read too many of them in a row, but when I need something different, a Discworld novel is the perfect metaphorical palate refresher. Life on Discworld is threatened and extraordinary efforts by an eccentric unmatched team is required to restore balance. Rincewind is an extraordinarily inept wizard whose greatest talent is saving his own skin. He is assisted by the traveler Twoflower, the Luggage, Cohen the Barbarian, Bethan the Sacrificial Virgin, and others along the way. Like all the Discworld books, the tone is satirical and clever. This book did not make me laugh aloud as frequently as Wee Free Men, but it had its moments. Had to love the throw-away line about the luters! These books do not contain any scenes, language, or images that would rate even a PG-13 rating at the movies. If a reader does not have sufficient maturity, much of the book will be wasted, because you won’t get the jokes or understand the satire. I count myself lucky to still have so many novels of Discworld ahead of me.

This was a great follow-up to The Color of Magic. It had no trouble keeping my interest and was equally hilarious to its predecessor. I read several reviews of this book saying it was only half as good as the first one, but I disagree. They are equally good in my opinion. It's really unfair to compare them as they are really two volumes of the same story. This is something I understand does not happen again in the Discworld series as they are all standalones here on out. Anyway, I immediately started reading Equal Rites after finishing this one. I just can't get enough of the humor that is in the Discworld. I love it!

I feel like that description really negates any review… but here it goes anyway… While the first book was really amazing due to the introduction of this crazy world that has a bit of everything it seems… and while you still get to see some new cool things… I really liked that this delved more into the characters and their growth in this insane adventure… Rincewind, who is scared of everything and constantly sure of their doom, actually becomes rather amusing in his almost hopelessness of ever being safe again… and Twoflower actually becomes more than just that stereotype of a tourist, and you begin to understand more of how he sees the world… but also the introduction of Bethan and Cohen really made the story so much fun… and even the Luggage gets a personality… it all helped to round the story out… my one complaint that knocked this book back a star was that the story bounced mostly between the happenings of Rincewind and Twoflower and the wizards at the Unseen University, but without any real transition… I mean he didn’t even put like a star between the paragraphs to let you know you’re suddenly in a different place with different people… and anything that jerks me out of the story and has me flipping back and forth trying to figure out if I missed something is not good… as the two sides of the story began to merge closer together it actually started going more smoothly… but every now and then it would still just be like a paragraph would come out of no where… however the book still was a bunch of fun…
