Sir Terry Pratchett’s 1990 Discworld offering and 9th in the series sees a return of Rincewind in this most Douglas Adamsesue of his booksA subtle parody of Goethe’s Faust we find a young Ankh Morpork demonologist Eric who has drawn a magic circle to summon a demon and instead brings Rincewind to his home Discworld fans and readers may recall that Pratchett left Rincewind in the dungeon dimensions at the end of his 1988 novel SourceryThis may be my favorite Rincewind novel We also get to see Death and the Luggage again and that is a always a bonusAll of Pratchett’s signature prosaic dry wit and wordplay is here as well as his gift for satire and playful social political and economic commentaryA fun adventure for fans of the Discworld

Matched only by Eric's And as if that wasn't bad enough that lovable travel accessory the Luggage has arrived too Accompanied by his best friends there's only one thing Eric wishes now that he'd never been born. This is my second read and my reaction is pretty much the same as the first timeRincewind is funnyOr rather the situations he always gets into showcases the Discworld in awesomely epic ways and we always get vast adventures Usually with some kind of weird sidekick and a healthy dose of DeathAll true sure but what if Rincewind was mistaken for a demon summoned by a nerdy kid who insists that he is because after all Rincewind came at his demon summoning Or how about Discworld's version of Troy Meeting the Creator Seeing the bureaucratic hell that is um hell It's a tongue in cheek romp and while it's uite hilarious and imaginative as hell I'm caught in that unenviable place of having to judge it among all of Pratchett's other works rather than against the backdrop of all humor or fantasy booksIt's not my favorite Discworld novel Not by a long shot BUT it is a lot higher than some and not even close to many of the later novels Even so I loved having Rincewind back again

Don´t play with dark magic it could be that Rincewind and the notorious pearwood chest return from other dimensions instead of the wished Jinn fairy or in this case demon or why not the dark lord himselfPratchett´s second novel with classic novels as inspirations it´s dynamic and uicker plotted than Wyrd Sisters integrating as many innuendos as possible and mixing in historical and mythical elementsIt shows how much potential there is to reinterpret adapt satirize and rewrite the classics or as there are meanwhile so many new adaptions on the market modify the modifications Where will this end The famous works are just a tiny grain of creativity in the sea of unknown already written and still to write works especially humor fantasy and sci fi are fertile ground for uniue and new ideas It are the genres in which I´ve read most completely new groundbreaking ideas while average literature without fantastic elements or the horror and thriller genre are rotating around the similar few plots and tropes possible in these settings On the other hand all of these plots can easily be implemented in the much manifold fantasy settingsPrepare for a short trip to hell where good oldfashioned torturing has been replaced by some kind of psychological horror white torture that is even sinister than the parody of Dante´s inferno surrounding it I am not sure if the real hell or this ironic version of it might be worse the best thing might be to combine both to not just crush the body or the mind but both permanent and efficientview spoilerThe running gag of Eric wanting and wishing things Rincewind is unable to fulfill because of a mixture of incompetence the nature of the wishes and a mystery accelerates the scenes and enables Pratchett to construct a different kind of hero´s journey The dynamic of this is going something like Jay wish fulfilled Nay there are severe deficits in how it has been realized we are all gonna die hide spoiler
