Synopsis

Terry Pratchett's profoundly irreverent, bestselling novels have garnered him a revered position in the halls of parody next to the likes of Mark Twain, Kurt Vonnegut, Douglas Adams, and Carl Hiaasen.

The Color of Magic is Terry Pratchett's maiden voyage through the now-legendary land of Discworld. This is where it all begins -- with the tourist Twoflower and his wizard guide, Rincewind.

With Pratchett in particular I loved reading every online tribute that included a personal anecdote, which gave me a bit more of an inner picture of the human being behind the books I love so much.

In the first story, “The Color of Magic”, Rincewind meets two barbarians, Bravd and Weasel (nudge, nudge, wink, wink), and tells them story of how he recently met Twoflower and how both were witness to the destruction of the mighty city Ankh-Morpork.

These are the traits of the Tendu, who live in the jungle-like environs of the alien planet, share their physiological state by joining their spurs in intense communion, and communicate not with words, but by changing the colors and patterns on their skin, with the color denoting their emotions.

While a bit confusing at first, it is a much funnier book and I immediately bought the few Discworld books that were then available.
