Publisher's Summary

The Colour of Magic, the first novel in Terry Pratchett's wildly imaginative Discworld series, takes the listener on a remarkable journey. The magical planet of Discworld is supported by four massive elephants who stand on the back of the Great A'Tuin, a giant turtle swimming slowly through the mysterious interstellar gulf. The adventure begins when an eccentric expedition sets out to explore the planet. The group, including an ineffective wizard and a naive tourist (whose luggage moves on its own little legs) encounters dragons who only exist if you believe in them, and, of course "The Edge" of the planet.

Audio - white noise

Would you consider the audio edition of The Colour of Magic to be better than the print version?


What three words best describe Nigel Planer’s performance?

Excellent, cunning, clever. Alas, the audio quality is abysmal!

Any additional comments?

The audio quality of this recording is miserable. There is plenty of white noise throughout the recording which make this a very unpleasant experience.

A magical good read!

This is one film I won?t need to go an see - the book is so well read by Nigel Planer that it is almost as if I have seen the characters as they lurch from one adventure to the next. If you like fantasy with a good seasoning of humour, imagination and trickery, this is the book for you!
