Couldn't Get Into it

The Color of Magic  - Terry Pratchett

I tried. I really did. But this book was not for me. It dragged. It had a lot of people and things happening and I felt like I needed to read a prequel book in order to understand everything that was going on. Maybe I just didn't get the funny parts of the book. I just felt lost through most of this. This is my second time attempting to read this book too and I don't think I will go back for a third time.

 

This book follows a wizard named Rincewind who guides Discworld's first tourist, Twoflower, around Anhk-Morpork then throughout the western lands and the great Circle Sea all the while being followed by Twoflower's luggage.

 

The writing was fine, I just thought the flow was a bit lopsided.
