Overview

Sourcery (Discworld Series #5) by Terry Pratchett

There was an eighth son of an eighth son. He was, quite naturally, a wizard. And there it should have ended. However (for reasons we'd better not go into), he had seven sons. And then he had an eighth son...a wizard squared...a source of magic...a Sourcerer.

SOURCERY SEES THE RETURN OF RINCEWIND AND THE LUGGAGE AS THE DISCWORLD FACES ITS GREATEST-AND FUNNIEST-CHALLENGE YET.

the book is about a young prodigy who changes all of the old wizardry on discworld into violent and unstable sourcery and an innept wizard rincewind must stop it. a major message is if you have nothing you can still accomplish even the mightiest of challenges. i liked the unforced humor and satire that terry pratchett augments the story with. this book is easily appealing and would be enjoyable to most. the storyline is sometimes a bit challenging to follow as it switches from scenes so i would recommend it to those who are teenage and older. the discworld series is a phenominal story, starting with The Color of Magic, which is a particular favorite.

The book Sourcery by Terry Pratchett is a great book for anyone who enjoys a good laugh. It includes tons of fun and adventure ,and in the inept wizard Rincewind's case despair of never leading a normal life.I believe anyone who reads this book will enjoy it as much as I have.
