Great Reference that Will Entice Even Non-fans
on November 23, 2001
I bought "The Discworld Companion" and "The Color of Magic" on the same trip to the bookstore. As already explained (see my "Color of Magic" review) I saw a kid at my school reading "Small Gods" and decided to try out the series. The Companion helped me through it by explaining some of the stuff. I was glad that it did not go into too much detail about what they do in the story. It talks about every character up to the time of "Hogfather". It has everybody from Abbys to Zweiblumen, every troll from Detritus to Kwartz. Every place from Al-Khali to Zemphis. There are even lists of Dances, Gods, Food, Animals, Plants, Zodiac, and more on the Disc! I have since read "The Color of Magic" and "The Light Fantastic" and am working on "Equal Rites".
