The Color of Magic (Discworld Series)

The Color of Magic - Terry Pratchett Funny and quirky in a very British way. I was a little disappointed in some of the writing, but liked the book on the whole enough to want to try some later Discworld novels by which time I expect Pratchett's writing would have improved too. That it is a short and light read is a bonus and tips the scales in this book's favor.
