‘The Colour of Magic’– Book Testimonial – Friday Fantasy Program– Episode 174.
The Bottled Imp takes place a little holiday looking for ‘The Colour of Magic’ written by Sir Terry Pratchett. Published in 1983.
I had to do with 15 or 16 when I first reviewed ‘The Colour of Magic’. I bear in mind seeing the colourful, animation cover on the shelves of Forbidden Planet in London as well as believing, “That appears like guide for me!” And I was right. By after that a number of books in the Discworld collection were released so I soon devoured the remainder of them. I have to have reviewed the initial 10 approximately back-to-back. Then I’m not certain what took place. I stopped reading them as well as shed touch with the whole goings on in the Pratchett world.
Rapid forward to The Bottled Imp years, and also I decided as part of our brand-new Monday show, The Bottled Imp Show, to check out all 41 Discworld books (some are short tales – The Great Fantasy Challenge), in magazine order. Not just that, to review one novel a week!
‘ The Colour of Magic’ is the initial in the Discworld series as well as the one that grew a few seeds of just how the world was formed. The surface of the disc consists of seas and continents, as well as with them, civilisations, forests, mountains and cities.
