Description

Bel-Shamharoth is an Elder God of the Discworld first introduced in 'The Sending of Eight' in The Colour of Magic. I somewhat envy readers who will be experiencing the Discworld novels for the first time though rereading brought its own pleasures. Ordinary minds are just vague to them, they hardly bother with them, but a mind with magic in it shines out, you see, it’s a beacon to them.

It's a smaller book and certainly doesn't "wow" the reader, but it has some interesting concepts that I have yet to see delved into in fantasy novels - while maintaining a humorous tone. It was so boring to listen to that I ended up speeding it up to double speed to get it over and done with.

I know that the books get even funnier, wittier and just more and more involved with the wonderful world that Sir Terry created, but this was just a 5 star read, laugh out loud funny and world building from the RamTops to the Rimfall. Esk, 8th "son" of an 8th son (on the Discworld, 8 is the most magical number), who inherits the staff of a pretty powerful wizard because - instead of listening to Granny - he is eager to pass on his wizard's staff before he dies and assumes that Esk is going to be a boy. The bad points can be forgiven in retrospect: it was his third and the books that follow just get better and better. Yo tengo que admitir que los magos no son tan de mi agrado como lo son las brujas salvo el bibliotecario, esta es la excepción a la regla (quienes lo conocen sabrán por qué.

If I was not already a Terry Pratchet fan, I would be after reading this exceptional book as we are formally introduced to Granny Weatherwax, witch. As a long long long time fan of Sir Terry Pratchett, I have listened to all previous performers, Nigel Planer and Stephen Briggs being my all time favorites and to fill those shoes. In all, he was the author of over fifty bestselling books which have sold over 100 million copies worldwide. But to me it also felt like a tale about the older generation coming to terms with and learning to embrace the desire for change promoted by the youth.Regarded as one of the most significant contemporary English-language satirists, Pratchett has won numerous literary awards, was named an Officer of the British Empire “for services to literature” in 1998, and has received four honorary doctorates from the Universities of Warwick, Portsmouth, Bath, and Bristol.
