Book Review: The Last Continent

The Last Continent

The Last Continent (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

This features my favorite wizard, Rincewind, a thoroughly unlikely hero. Once again, he is called upon to save the world. As usual he is thrown into situations not of his making and has to escape through various devious means, of which he is a master. The luggage puts in an appearance though it has undergone somewhat of a transformation. It appears wearing high heels on its many feet and answers to the name of ‘Trunkie’ now.

The senior wizards from the Unseen University are stranded in the future with their housekeeper. She keeps the Senior Wrangler on his toes as he struggles to control his emotions. Ponder Stibbons meets the God of Evolution and applies for a job. The wizards are doing a great job of disturbing the future in their own inept way, which of course impacts on the past. The Bursar learns how to surf and the Archchanchellor  is his usual hearty self.

As an Australian I can relate to the book very well as it’s a thinly veiled reference to Australia. Like all of his books it is very funny and clever.

I really am addicted to Terry Pratchett. I sit there and snigger away to myself, and have to keep reading parts out to The Spouse, because he wonders what is so funny.

A book that will cheer you up, and make you appreciate how miraculous life really is.
