I love reading Pratchett as he builds his world full of characters that let him shift from one to another and write stories from different viewpoints. Years ago I didn't see it and out of the first five books, three were centered around Rincewind and his uncanny ability to get out of trouble while being so rudely inserted into trouble. Rincewind reminds me of a comedy bit Ron White performs when he talks about being arrested for being drunk in public. In the bit he talks about how he was actually drunk in private until they threw him out of the bar into the public.

I was wavering between 3 and 4 stars and I originally gave it 4 but I've revised it to 3 stars. I was listening to the Radio Morpork podcast on the book and they nailed what I had difficulty focusing on. I like the characters but they don't seem to mesh well with the story. Individually they rock but I didn't get the same meshy feeling like I did in Mort.

On one hand I'm proud to write that I now know how to pronounce geas. On another hand I'm a little perturbed to write that for over 40 years I'd pronounced it wrong and it took Pratchett's wordplay in this book for me to figure it out. As in recently figured it out. As in what time is it now?

I almost forgot to write about the cover! Back in the 70s when I was devouring fantasy, I loved Darrell K. Sweet's (DKS) covers and learned to recognize them. They often drew me to books while I was cruising the local bookstore looking for something to read. Flash forward many years when I get this book. Now the first four have Josh Kirby covers while this one has a DKS one and I don't like it. DKS was an incredibly prolific cover artist and did the covers for many books I've read so why don't I like it?

Maybe it's because of the Kirby covers? I'm not really sure. So I start hunting around online because it's easy to do and do I find a lot of likes and dislikes on Pratchett covers! And it's all over the place. I see people who hate DKS covers and love Kirby covers. Wowee but people don't hold back their negative thoughts online (shocking, I know). I read (I forget where) that Pratchett almost felt like DKS hadn't read the book when he created the US covers. But then I read a lot of dislike for Kirby's covers. One person wrote about how they were so hideous it put them off reading the books! And while I haven't read anything about Pratchett not liking the Kirby covers, I did read that the Paul Kidby covers were his preference and he found it amazing that the Kidby character designs were more like what he imagined for his characters.

Many years ago I saw, in Bath, a very large American lady towing a huge tartan suitcase very fast on little rattly wheels which caught in the pavement cracks and generally gave it a life of its own. At that moment the Luggage was born. Many thanks to that lady and everyone else in places like Power Cable, Neb., who don't get nearly enough encouragement.

The subject of wizards and sex is a complicated one, but as has already been indicated it does, in essence, boil down to this: when it comes to wine, women and song, wizards are allowed to get drunk and croon as much as they like.
Two thousand years of peaceful magic had gone down with the drain, the towers were going up again, and with all this new raw magic floating around something was going to get very seriously hurt. Probably the universe.
Strangely enough, he wasn't particularly angry. Anger is an emotion, and for emotion you need glands, and Death didn't have much truck with glands and needed a good run at it to get angry. But he was mildly annoyed. He sighed again. People were always trying this sort of thing. On the other hand, it was quite interesting to watch, and at least this was a bit more original than the usual symbolic chess game, which Death always dreaded because he could never remember how the knight was supposed to move.
There was a pause full of philosophy.
They convinced him that he wasn't mad because, if he was mad, that left no word at all to describe some of the people he met.
