Read Sourcery (Discworld, #5; Rincewind #3) Online Free - When last seen, the singularly inept wizard Rincewind had fallen off the edge of the world. Now magically, he's turned up again, and this time he's brought the Luggage.
But that's not all....
Once upon a time, there was an eighth son of an eighth son who was, of course, a wizard. As if that wasn't complicated enough, said wizard then had seven sons. And then he had an eighth son -- a wizard squared (that's all the math, really). Who of course, was a source of magic -- a sourcerer.

This is going to sound rather critical despite my rating, but I feel like I ought to be rather honest. The basic over-story is pretty good, as is the action and most of the humor, but there was still swaths of text that felt like it was trying too hard.
More funny, more witty, more like Color of M...

Maybe I am tiring of this series. Maybe this book really was slow. Whatever the case is, I had a difficult time getting into it. The humour was sometimes engaging and sometimes forced. It almost felt like the author was following the formula that had worked in previous books and reproducing it me...

Back to the Pratchett reread after skipping Mort. (I love Mort, but I can just about recite it at this point; I didn't need to reread it).
On the Discworld the eighth son of an eighth son is a wizard and that would normally be the end of that. But if that wizard also has sons then his eighth son i...

I hate rating this low, but I have to be honest. I spent more time counting off pages to completion than I did on reading it.
There were some really funny parts and snippets of awesome. But in the end, it just wasn't connecting with me. It took me a month to finish. Ugh...
Still, I certai...

“Not much call for a barbarian hairdresser, I expect,' said Rincewind. 'I mean, no-one wants a shampoo-and-beheading.”
For some reason this, the fifth instalment of the Discworld series, feels the most derivitive and the most puerile in terms of humour.
The premise, as much as you can call it that...

This is the 5th Discworld book and the 3rd with Rincewind. He's not exactly a main character though, or at least not the only one.
You see, we already know from the 3rd novel that the eighth son of an eighth son is predestined to become a wizard, but here we discover what happens if that eighth so...

3.5 Me reí bastante con esta historia del Mundodisco, es hasta ahora la que mejor describe a Rincewind este "hechicero" que no hace magia, y que intenta huir de todos los peligros que se le presenten, que son insistentes en su vida, pero que en el fondo tiene un gran corazón, cada vez siento mas...

This is another entertaining instalment, not one of my most favourites, but these books cannot be less than great! I love the characters yet again, especially Conina, and it’s a great take on the wizard aspect of fantasy novels with a much broader view of the Discworld which was very interesting...
