5.0 out of 5 stars The Discworld Mapp Review
Very helpful and informative. Includes stories of famous discworld people. It helps to look at the map while you read the books to see where you are. And what ever happened to, "You can't map a sense of Humor??"

2.0 out of 5 stars Nope, sorry. Not for me.
It just didn't have the cachet of the books. Heaven knows, it tried, but it seem to lack that Pratchett touch.

This review is from: The Discworld Mapp: Being the Onlie True & Mostlie Accurate Mappe of the Fantastyk & Magical Dyscworlde (Paperback)
I think my husband would rate this atlas a 5. His response was "A map of Discworld? AWESOME!"
I'll have to go with cute, rather than awesome. I wish there was a little more to it. I'm a map and atlas junkie and this one just doesn't follow through enough for me. It's still a must for Pratchett fans, though.

This review is from: The Discworld Mapp: Being the Onlie True & Mostlie Accurate Mappe of the Fantastyk & Magical Dyscworlde (Paperback)
Got this for Christmas...I would've taken one look at it and have been satisfied. "Oh, thats where all that is." Its just a map of the Discworld, with stories of "Discworld Discoverers" added in. Those are kinda boring. I'd buy it if you just want to have it---but what do you really NEED it for? Especially if you've seen it once----or, heres a dangerous thought---you use your imagination to figure out where everything is on the Discworld????

I loved this companion to the series. I have a hard time picturing places on a map in my head, so this really cleared up a number of geographical questions I've accumulated over reading the series. The booklet is also a lot of fun. I'd definitely recommend to Discworld fans!

Funny! Screechingly funny!
Pratchett skewers epic exploration, especially the arrogance which practically defined almost all dedicated explorers. I laughed out loud several times.
Yes, it does include a "mapp" of the Discworld--it folds out to poster size. You can find the places Rincewind sprinted through.

This review is from: The Discworld Mapp: Being the Onlie True & Mostlie Accurate Mappe of the Fantastyk & Magical Dyscworlde (Paperback)
If you're like me, you'll love this map. It is so nice to be able to just look up and see where all these places are instead of trying to figure it out in my head. The little pamplet is also nice.

This review is from: The Discworld Mapp: Being the Onlie True & Mostlie Accurate Mappe of the Fantastyk & Magical Dyscworlde (Paperback)
The discworld should never have been mapped! Suddenly the live world of the Discworld has been projected onto and confined to two-dimensionality. Was this what we loved about Pratchett's geography? How can countries appear and disappear now? This map is not a gain, it's a loss!

This review is from: The Discworld Mapp: Being the Onlie True & Mostlie Accurate Mappe of the Fantastyk & Magical Dyscworlde (Paperback)
It is very fun to know the geographical positioning of the discworld. It makes me feel that the discworld is a real place and not some work of fiction. The booklet with a short introduction is quite amusing as well. I think any fan of the Discworld will find this mapp very entertaining

This review is from: The Discworld Mapp: Being the Onlie True & Mostlie Accurate Mappe of the Fantastyk & Magical Dyscworlde (Paperback)
This is a lovely map of the entire Discworld, as seen from above. It comes with a booklet that explains the map. The only problem I would have is that there should have been a little more detail. But overall its still great and gives you an idea of how far the characters of the Discworld stories venture across the Disc.
