22nd in the Discworld series, although it really follows from 'Interesting Times', as it's a book featuring the wizards. Rincewind is struggling for survival on XXXX (loosely based on Australia) and the other wizards travel in both time and space to try to find him. They want the Librarian's name, and Rincewind is the only person likely to know it.

While all the Discworld books can stand alone, this one is best read after at least a few of the earlier ones. There's lots of satire, plenty of banter between the wizards, and some excellent new characters; I was particularly amused by the God of Evolution.

Not to everyone's taste - the author pokes fun at many Australian cultures, speech habits and animals - but definitely recommended to anyone who likes the sometimes farcical satire on human nature that the Discworld books provide.

There's nothing more dangerous than a god with too much time on its hands.

What a brilliant statement. Honestly, Pratchett continues to wow me with this series. I came for the funny, but I'm staying for the intelligence.

Though, to be fair, the funny is still amazing. Witness several high muck-a-mucks from the Unseen Academy attempting to explain sex to a clueless god. Hilarious.

But it's the seemingly casually tossed-off observations that spur comments that, while also meant to be funny, are also deeply intelligent observations.

Absolutely love this series. ( )

The Last Continent is something of a disappointment after Interesting Times. That's not to say that it's strictly speaking 'bad', just that it's not quite as good as many of the other Rincewind novels.

Basically, this time around, Rincewind's adventures have dropped him off on XXXX, the 'Last Continent' of the Discworld. Basically, it's bizarroworld Australia with something of a funny relationship with the whole time-space thing.

Unfortunately, Pratchett does go a bit off the end of the weird scale here. There is a lot of funny, but a lot that's just entirely too weird (which is saying something). Australia XXXX is full of deadly animals. It's hot. It's try. And there are kangaroos. And then there's an island run by a god of evolution with something of a bizarre world view.

If you're looking for Discworld novels to skip, you could probably put this one on the list. If you're a completionist, it's not the worst book ever. ( )

I wasn't very impressed with this book. Far too much pointless running around nand no discernable plot besides that. I guess that's the point, but it's still kind of a waste of reading time. ( )

Suffice it to say that while this may not be Pratchett's best Discworld novel, it's still an enjoyable one. What, one wonders, will he tackle next? Among other things, he's spoofed religion (Small Gods), feminism (Equal Rites), Hollywood (Moving Pictures), death (in an entire series of books), opera (Maskerade), racism (Jingo), Christmas (Hogfather), ancient Egypt (Pyramids), and most of the hoary, shop-worn devices of fantasy. Still, no worries; there are plenty of themes left.

This is not a book about Australia. No, it's about somewhere entirely different which just happens to be, here and there, a bit . . . australian.

People don't live on the Disc any more than, in less hand-crafted parts of the multiverse, they live on balls. Oh, planets may be the place where their body eats its tea, but they live elsewhere, in worlds of their own which orbit very handily around the centre of their heads.
All tribal myths are true, for a given value of 'true'.
