#ReadAway2024 @Andrew65 @DieAReader @GHABI4ROSES

Yesterday was a very busy day so not a lot of reading time. I did start Eric for #OokBookClub @julesG

julesG Eric is a quick read. My illustrated edition has about 163 pages. Some people would call it a novella 18h

Eric summons a demon of unimaginable power to grant his 3 world changing wishes. He gets Rincewind.

I know the story of Faust, so I thought I knew where this was going. But then I remembered this was a Rincewind book & threw my predictions out the window. Which is also where this plot went. With Pratchett‘s signature humor, a smartass parrot, & trips to distant past & the depths of Hell, this is easily my favorite Rincewind book. 🌕🌕🌕🌕🌑

Almost halfway through, I was having a terrible time finding the motivation to read this ebook. I liked the story well enough but I finally realized that the fact it has no clear chapters puts me off so badly!
I managed to find the audiobook through Spotify & I'm already enjoying the listening experience so much more! I won't have enough hours this month to finish the whole thing but will catch up with #OokBOokClub discussions soon @julesG

julesG Don't worry. The no chapters thing keeps tripping me up too. And then I end up reading the whole book in one go anyway and it doesn't matter. 1w

I read this Pratchett book for #OokBookClub @julesG

Not my favorite of Pratchett but still enjoyed. As I stated previously, it reminded me of the movie Pink Panther. 3.5⭐️

julesG Okay, I'll start. 🤣🤣 Sourcery isn't my favourite Discworld adventure. Rincewind isn't my favourite hero. But, I love how he's bumbling about and accidentally saving the world. 3w

TheAromaofBooks This was my first Discworld book, and while I liked it, I didn't love it. So I was glad to see a lot of reviews saying this wasn't one of the best 😂 I did appreciate the humor and unique characters, so I'm excited to read more. 3w
julesG @TheAromaofBooks Glad you liked it. 3w
Deblovestoread I‘m the same as Sarah. My first Pratchett and it was ok. I am looking forward to the next one to get more familiar with Discworld. 3w
willaful I'm not a huge Rincewind fan (nor is my mom, a huge Pratchett fangirl. ;-) ) so I suggest the newcomers try again, perhaps when we get to the Witches or the Watch books. Or Death, Death is great. Lol.

I read this last month by mistake and don't remember my thoughts much, except there seemed to be maybe some inspiration for “Good Omens.“ Anyone else agree?
3w
julesG @willaful I agree. There are some things that appear in Good Omens. But not only from this book, there are elements from other Discworld novels (especially the ones set in AM) that made it into GO in some way. 3w
BookWrym The Death books are my favourite. Does anyone else here want their own real live luggage? 3w
TheSpineView Not quit finished reading but close enough for discussions. I agree with everyone that this is not my favorite book. However, I thought as I was reading that it reminded me of the movie Pink Panther. Thinking specifically about Inspector Clouseau. There are some similarities between the two. Sorcery was first published in 1988 according to GoodReads. Which is after the first movie with Peter Seller's. I wonder if he drew inspiration from it?? 3w
kwmg40 I'm still working on my reread of this book but thought I'd jump into the discussion anyhow. Rincewind isn't a favourite, but I love all appearances of The Luggage. The Librarian is also a great character. 3w
julesG @BookWrym I'd love to have my own Luggage. 3w
julesG @TheSpineView Now that you mention it 🤔 I see the connection. 3w
julesG @kwmg40 Ook! 3w
BarbaraJean This is my first foray into Discworld outside of Tiffany Aching and Mort, and I agree--not my favorite. It was fun and it made me laugh, but Rincewind felt lackluster. It took me until the upside-down magic carpet and the half-brick-in-a-sock before I was really on board with Rincewind. 😂 @TheSpineView The comparison to Pink Panther actually endears Rincewind to me a bit more! Maybe he just needs an outrageous French accent. 😆 3w
TheSpineView @BarbaraJean Too funny!! 🤣🤣🤣 3w

Pratchett has been on my radar for quite some time, but I've never actually jumped in. So when @julesg said that the #OokBookClub was starting over, this seemed like a great time to give his writing a whirl. I enjoyed but wasn't mind-blown by this one, but the consensus seems to be that it isn't his best, and this was still an easy pick. I'm looking forward to working through some of these, as I found the characters, world-building, and humor ⬇

Librarybelle Nice! I‘ve yet to read anything by Pratchett! 1mo
BarbaraJean Ohhh, I hadn't seen that #OokBookClub was starting over... I may have to jump into that! Because I need more buddy reads 😂 I've only read Pratchett's Tiffany Aching series, and then Mort--and I loved all of them. 1mo
