Terry Pratchett – Interesting Times

October 10th 2011 in fantasy


The oldest and most inscrutable empire on the Discworld is in turmoil, brought about by the revolutionary treatise What I did on My Holidays. Workers are uniting, with nothing to lose but their water buffaloes. War (and Clancy) are spreading throughout the ancient cities.

And all that stands in the way of terrible doom for everyone is:

Rincewind the Wizard, who can’t even spell the word “wizard”…

Cohen the barbarian hero, five foot tall in his surgical sandals, who has had a lifetime’s experience of not dying…

…and a very special butterfly.

Bok nummer sjutton i Discworld-serien handlar alltså om harige magikern – jag vägrar använda termen ‘trollkarl’, usch och fy och tvi och blä – Rincewind, som försöker undvika att bli inblandad i en massa farliga intriger. Det går naturligtvis inte så bra, och det blir för femte gången upp till honom att ställa allt till rätta. Den här gången bär det i väg till Counterweight Continent, där guld är lika vanligt som grus och bönder står och håller i snören med bufflar på andra änden dagarna i ända.
