Even though the story was good, I really felt like it dragged in places. I did get a kick out of the "Aussie" lingo used and had to call a friend who lives near Melbourne to "get" some of the references, which she had a laugh explaining. Overall, it was decent, and something a Disc World fan should read.

Another fun Discworld read. I always love hearing about the Luggage, the Librarian, and Death ... a few of my favorite characters. We came sooooo close to learning more about the Librarian ... so close.

I love Discworld. I am in the process of reading every single book. Despite a horrifying diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease, Mr. Pratchett has only gotten better with age. I especially appreciate the combination of humor, characterization, and plot in Pratchett's recent trilogy (Hat Full of Sky, etc).

All that being said, I dragged myself through reading the Last Continent. It does not have the same compelling plot of the other books. This book is worth reading, but keep your expectations low.

I love Terry Pratchett's Discworld series. This story has Rincewind running around in a land that sounds suspiciously like Australia.

The 22nd Discworld novel. In this volume, Pratchett introduces us to
the Discworld's equivalent of the continent of Australia.
Unseen University is in chaos, and the faculty decides that the only
way to put things back to rights is to find Rincewind the Wizzard,
whom rumor has it is on the continent of Fourecks (which strongly
resembles Australia). However, due to a mishap involving a cleaning
lady, a number of the wizards find themselves stranded on a
paradise-like coast - thirty thousand years in the past.
It's good to see Rincewind and the crotchety old wizards of Unseen
university again (not to mention the Luggage!), but unfortunately the
plethora of jokes involving Australian customs are a very mixed bag -
many of them weren't particularly inspired or funny. Overall, it's
entertaining, but not one of Pratchett's best.

If you are a Terry Pratchett fan you will love this book. I read it about 6 years ago and enjoyed it very much.
