Honestly, just a lot of fun. Terry Practchett's lingo is a blast. It's actually funny, too. I'll be continuing on with the series.

I found this book at times tough going with jumping between subjects and characters. Understandably for a first novel there's a lot of world to be constructed and as it's not my first Discworld book I just didn't find this as entertaining as others have been.

Laugh-out-loud funny. This was my first Terry Pratchett book and it won't be the last.

Tenía muchas ganas de conocer la pluma de Terry Pratchett luego de leer su obra conjunta con Neil Gaiman: Buenos Presagios, y no me ha decepcionado para nada con el primer volumen de esta saga, su obra más famosa.

El autor supo combinar de una forma maravillosa y súper divertida un mundo fantástico con un abanico de elementos cómicos que van desde la parodia al sarcasmo o directamente al absurdo más absoluto. A pesar de esto (y de que el libro va a poner a prueba nuestra imaginación constantemente), la obra nunca pierde la coherencia interna ni el hilo central de la historia, aún con sus muchos saltos y cambios de escenario. Los personajes también son entrañables y muy divertidos (sobre todo cierto objeto hecho de madera que me sacó más de una sonrisa) y tienen la profundidad necesaria para el tipo de historia que se narra.

En resumen, un libro corto pero brillante tanto en su premisa como en ejecución, que me ha dejado un gran sabor de boca y muchas ganas de continuar con la saga más pronto que tarde.

I laughed out loud in the beginning, I almost never laugh out loud when I read. This was pretty funny, especially Rincewind and Death. I'll try some of his other (later) books.
