Ironic Contradictions

I'm a long time reader - since way back when I was seven. That makes it over three quarters of my life that I will be a reader for. But it is worth it. When I'm not reading or wasting my time online on here or Goodreads I'll be off playing video games, studying teaching and messing around with friends and pop culture. Or reading some more.
The Colour of Magic Film Tie-In Omnibus (Discworld Novels) - Terry Pratchett I again find myself wishing that Goodreads offered me a half-star option. In the instance of this story I will grant it the higher of the options between three and four but I would prefer to diagnose it with a three and a half.

It was great, it was okay, it was weak, it was strong. It ebbed and flowed still holding onto Terry Pratchett's unique tone. Like Douglas Adams this tone is a blend of random detail and wit, utilizing deus ex machina elements at times for the sake of comedy.

On the whole it was an enjoyable fantasy and those who like a clever-enough plot that serves the humor of the writer should enjoy this. And what is it in short? A tale of a wizard who tries to escape death and the naive tourist in a dangerous land who he leads around. Only problem is there's a spell stuck in his head...

If that sounds interesting enough read it. I can't adequately describe the book in my review suffice to say it was enjoyable.
