Description

"Humorously entertaining. . . subtly thought-provoking. . . . Pratchett's Discworld books are filled with humor and with magic, but they're rooted in—of all things—real life and cold, hard reason."—Chicago Tribune

Bumbling wizard Rincewind and hapless tourist Twoflower have survived a host of misadventures . . . only to face annihilation as a red star hurtles towards the Discworld in this gloriously funny second installment in Sir Terry Pratchett's Discworld series (also the second book in the Wizards collection)

It's just one of those days when nothing seems to go right—and a most inopportune time for the first tourist ever to set foot in Discworld—accompanied by the carnivorous Luggage—to extend his already eventful vacation, even if it's not quite by choice. A monstrous red star is on a direct collision course with the Discworld and the future appears uncertain at best.

Discworld needs a hero to save it from total destruction. Unfortunately, it's got the bumbling Rincewind, still recovering from the trauma of falling off the edge of the world. The alternative couldn't be much worse. . . .

The Discworld novels can be read in any order, but The Light Fantastic is the second book in the Wizards collection. The other books in the collection include:

  • The Color of Magic
  • Sourcery
  • Eric
  • Interesting Times
  • The Last Continent
  • Unseen Academicals
  • Also in This Series
