The Discworld books are perhaps the only series that I've never felt the need to read in order... this one, I believe, is the second installment in the two-dozen-plus volume humorous series... I'm not usually much for reading 'humor,' but Pratchett (and Douglas Adams) are my exceptions. They really are very very funny.
In this one, the Discworld, atop its giant turtle cruising through space, is on a collision course with a giant star. The only way to avert disaster will be to have the eight spells of the tome known as the Octavo read simultaneously and at the right moment.... however, one of the spells has left the book and is lodged in the brain of the failed wizard Rincewind, who is in parts unknown with the archetypal Tourist, Twoflower, and his amazingly cute but quite possibly malevolent travelling Trunk, The Luggage.

If you enjoy a bit of silliness in your humor this is the book for you. I laughed all the way through it.

Another great DiscWorld novel featuring the âwizard' Rincewind and his friend TwoFlower. This is the second Discworld book that I have read, the first being âThe Color of Magic'. This book takes right up where the last lets off, with Rincewind falling off the Disc. This book has a much more solid storyline and the characters are fabulous. I look forward to many more hours reading about the adventures to be found on DiscWorld.

I enjoyed this much more than the first book, and it was very much woth reading the first book to be able to read this. I found the book funny and easy to read, a great sign of what to expect in future Discworld novels.
