'What shall we do?' said Twoflower. 'Panic?' said Rincewind hopefully. He always held that panic was the best means of survival. When the very fabric of time and space are about to be put through the wringer - in this instance by the imminent arrival of a very large and determinedly oncoming meteorite - circumstances require a very particular type of hero. Sadly what the situation does not need is a singularly inept wizard, still recovering from the trauma of falling off the edge of the world. Equally it does not need one well-meaning tourist and his luggage which has a mind of its own. Which is a shame because that's all there isa

User Review  - Joseph - Goodreads

I really want to like these books more than I genuinely do. I was ready for a break from Discworld about 2/3rds of the way through the second book. Read full review

Review: The Light Fantastic (Discworld #2)

User Review  - Regan Wann - Goodreads

The Rincewind stories don't tend to be my favorite but I do love Twoflower and The Luggage, you can't go wrong with sapient pearwood, after all. This was a very light, quick read that was pretty fun, overall. Read full review
