批評家のレビュー

"Pratchett is a comic genius." ( Daily Express)

あらすじ・解説

"Twoflower was a tourist, the first ever seen on the Discworld. Tourist, Rincewind decided, meant idiot."

Somewhere on the frontier between thought and reality exists the Discworld, a parallel time and place that might sound and smell very much like our own, but that looks completely different. It plays by different rules. Certainly it refuses to succumb to the quaint notion that universes are ruled by pure logic and the harmony of numbers. But just because the Disc is different doesn't mean that some things don't stay the same. Its very existence is about to be threatened by a strange new blight: the arrival of the first tourist, upon whose survival rests the peace and prosperity of the land. But if the person charged with maintaining that survival in the face of robbers, mercenaries, and, well, Death, is a spectacularly inept wizard, a little logic might turn out to be a very good idea.

The Colour of Magic is the first novel in Terry Pratchett's acclaimed Discworld series, of which some 20 million copies have been sold.

Horribly abridged

Unfortunately no unabridged version of this book is available here.
The abridged version destroys the immersion for me completely.
Characters are thrown from once place to another, people are introduced and then discarded without further context.
Not recommended.

A lot of the original content is missing.

Can't believe its taken me this long to discover Discworld.

Wildly imaginative

Nice read, although a wild imagination can sometimes be viewed as a bit random in the story-telling. The story jumps around a bit where each story I hoped could be told with a bit more detail, especially in the fight scenes.

Hillarious and strange fun

l loved it! but then I am a collosal Terry Pratchett fan. It was excellently performed and I shall look for the next book in the series hopefully with the same narrator. I highly recommend this for anyone with a sense and enjoyment for the peculiar and a rampant imagination

Easy and happy listening, author has a unique sense of humour which ensures your attention. Strange at first but then you can't put it down

Persevere - you won't be disappointed

It took me 3 goes (once trying to read the book itself) before I 'got it'. There is a mindset that accompanies appreciation of Mr Pratchett's sense of humour and incredible imagination. Now I have that mindset, I'm hooked!!

Wish Tony Robinson did the unabridged

Tony Robinson does a fantastic performance. I've been a fan of Tony Robinson and Terry Pratchett all my life. However this book is so poorly abridged that its actually an offense the the brilliant discworld series. Get the unabridged version. Nigel Planer is almost as good and the book just needs to be read in its entirety.

Simply Brilliant

Vocally animated more by Tony than you could probably do yourself in your own head! Written by a legend and voiced by one.. perfect harmonious storytelling of the first Discworld Novel.

Abridged.

For me, the charm of the Discworld is the rich tapestry of relationships and the background information - in this version most of that fell on the cutting room floor.

The patrician doesn't even make an appearance making it seem like Rincewind is just being a nice guy/friend/guide rather than fearing for what happens to his neck should he fail.

If you've read the book, you'll have a few cases of 'hang on, didn't death...' and 'Wait a moment, wasn't there a...'.

Disappointing.

Way too abridged - but still a good listen

Now I know it must be a COMPLETE nightmare abridging Terry Pratchet, but I still think that essentially halving the content was a bit harsh. I only bought this because all of the reviews from the unabridged version complain about the poor audio quality. I think that it's time for a new version personally.

If you've read the book, you will find huge chunks missing. If not, you probably won't notice that much as the "plot bits" are still left in. My two boys (aged 7 and 9) really enjoyed it and its a good introduction to the Diskworld. I would highly recommend buying the unabridged version of Book 2 (The Light Fantastic) to follow on with however. It will make much more sense.

This audio book has a lot missing compared to the written version. If I had been aware I would have bought a different title.

You should really try reading this author!  

I was in my teens when a friend of mine gave me a book that was written by Terry Pratchett. It was translated version of the 4th book of this series and to this day it's in my top 10 of books to recommend to anybody. The way He writes never seems to never get old and the stories WILL take you to a different world, no matter how young or old you are.

This is the first book of one of the best fantasy book series there is in this world. 

If you are not a native English speaker you may find it a little bit hard to read and I would recommend trying it at your language first if possible. The translated books were almost as good as the originals at least in my language (Finnish). But please do try at least one of his books. They are all masterpieces. If you can't read this one (because you can't find it in your own language or ..) Try one of these: Mort,  Night Watch or The Long Utopia (by  Terry Pratchett and Stephen Baxter)

Please try his works! You will not regret it!

Perfect mating of author and narrator.

Where does The Colour of Magic rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This is the best matching of author and narrator that I have come across so far. To the point that I will now be hunting up all of Tony Robinsons narrations of Terry Pratchetts books!
Excellent.

Who was your favorite character and why?

There is no possibility of selecting one favourite when it comes to characters in this book. Let's face it, all of Terry Pratchetts characterisations are the best. Good, bad or down right crazy, they all surpass the standard character of any book.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I now play these in the car. So every time I get in and turn on the key, Tony's voice comes piping through the speakers and my grin is instantaneous.

Any additional comments?

Want to be happy? Download this and get sucked into a fantastic world.

A wacky classic.

I love this narrators voice. This classic fantasy story really suits the irony and sarcasm that the narrator can put into the reading of the main character.

Never Listen to a book by Tony Robinson!!!

Unlistenable! Tony Robinson is terrible. He does not know how to read out loud. you can't follow the story as he does not modulate and sounds very stilted.
