Description

The eye-wateringly funny fantasy romp across the Discworld, featuring the most incompetent wizard you’ll ever find . . .

‘The Discworld novels have always been among the most serious of comedies, the most relevant and real of fantasies’ Independent

It is known as the Discworld. It is a flat planet, supported on the backs of four elephants, who in turn stand on the back of the great turtle A’Tuin as it swims majestically through space. And it is quite possibly the funniest place in all of creation…

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.

Readers love The Light Fantastic:

‘Five zany stars for this fantastic romp through the twisted imagination of Sir Terry Pratchett that made me smirk, giggle, snicker, and right larf out loud from Page 1 to “The End!”‘ Goodreads reviewer,

‘Death made a great appearance in this story. Small, but spot on. This is absurdism at its best . . . Pieces, like the retail shop that materializes here and there, remind me of the Hitchhiker’s guide . . . This is stellar storytelling’ Goodreads reviewer,

‘Pratchett managed to keep the whole thing comical, while at the time satirical. Not once did I not grin or snort out loud’ Goodreads reviewer,

‘It’s the first inklings of the strong character work, social commentary and razor sharp humor that have made Pratchett a household name’ Goodreads reviewer,

‘So good it’s unfair – there’s a joke every three words and it’s still thrilling, and occasionally heartbreaking’ Goodreads reviewer,
