‘The Light Great’– Reserve Review – Friday Fantasy Show– Episode 175.
The Bottled Imp proceeds our expedition of the Discworld world with the ‘The Light Fantastic’ written by Sir Terry Pratchett. Very first published in 1986.
I was around 15 or 16 when I initially checked out ‘The Colour of Magic’, publication 1 of the Discworld collection. I bear in mind seeing the colourful, animation cover on the shelves of Forbidden Planet in London as well as assuming, “That resembles the book for me!” And also I was.
Fast forward to The Bottled Imp years, and I decided as part of our brand-new Monday show, The Bottled Imp Show, to review all 41 Discworld stories (some are short tales – The Great Fantasy Challenge), in publication order. However not just that, to review one unique a week!
‘ The Light Fantastic’ is the 2nd book in the Discworld collection as well as additionally a direct follow up to the initial publication ‘The Colour of Magic’. The premise of all the Discworld stories is as follows. The surface of the disc consists of seas and continents, as well as with them, civilisations, hills, cities as well as forests.
The set up of ‘The Light Fantastic’ as explained from Wikipedia:
The book starts shortly after the ending of The Colour of Magic, with wizard Rincewind, Twoflower and also the Luggage falling from the Discworld. They are saved when the Octavo, one of the most effective book of magic on the Discworld, adjusts reality to stop the loss of one of its eight spells, which has stayed in Rincewind’s head given that his expulsion from Unseen University: Rincewind, Twoflower as well as the Luggage end up in the Forest of Skund.
