From 309 Ratings


The side-splitting sequel to The Color of Magic, The Light Fantastic by New York Times bestselling author Sir Terry Pratchett takes readers on another offbeat journey with bumbling wizard Rincewind and hapless tourist Twoflower—both last seen falling off the edge of Discworld.

The fate of Pratchett’s alternative fantasy macrocosm are in the bumbling duo’s hands as it hurtles its way toward a foreboding red star, threatening the fate of the entire universe. 

Sharp, sardonic, and brilliantly funny, in this third installment in the bestselling Discworld series, Pratchett once again earns his master satirist reputation, with witty wordplay and irreverent storytelling that fans are sure to love.


  • what missing “chapter?"

    By Melusine of Trenton
    So far as I have seen, most of the Discworld books are not written in chapters. Can anyone tell me what part is supposedly missing? (Page numbers are also not useful because people read iBooks in different font sizes.) I just read this book for the first time a few weeks ago (I’ve been bingeing on Discworld novels; just started Small Gods) and I didn’t see any sign that something was left out. Maybe they’ve corrected the problem?
  • Awesome book

    By Carsal98
    Fantastic read. Even better than the first.
  • Beware

    By Glitchy-Gee
    Indeed there is a missing chapter
  • Confirmed, chapter missing

    By Tymester
    Let me just reiterate what's already been said: a full chapter is missing right from the middle of the book, and then some more. I'm now very wary of buying anything from this store, lest i have to spend the same amount a second time on the Kindle store just to learn who's that Cohen they're… Terrible disappointment.
  • Missing a chapter!

    By McVador
    The actual book is really, really good, a 5 star literary adventure of epic hilarity, wisdom, and wit. But the version I downloaded is missing a big chunk of the book! Luckily, I had the real hardcopy to compare with and it didn't take me long to realize what was going on. It's weird because they both have the same number of pages (241) but the pages aren't "in synch" at all. Apple, please fix this now, This is the first book I bought from here and so it's hard for me to trust reading books you scan in... I love the interface but no interface can make up for missing content! So, the real book gets 5 stars, but this version only gets 1... I'm sorry Terry, but I'm sure you understand!
