Publisher's Summary

You've heard of Faust - this is Eric. There's a difference.Eric is 14, lives on the famed and magical Discworld, and is the first ever demonology hacker. Fortunately, he doesn't succeed in raising any devils, but he does raise Rincewind (the most incompetent wizard in the universe) and the Luggage (the world's most dangerous travel accessory).When Eric turns them loose on an unprotected world, the idea is that Rincewind will grant him his three rather adolescent wishes. You know, the usual three - live forever, rule the world, meet the most beautiful woman who ever lived. Simple, really.Getting marooned at dawn of Time, changing the future, and meeting history's most embarrassing god is only the start. Creating life on the Discworld is a mere detail. Because Rincewind ends up going through Hell. Literally.Browse all novels of Discworld.

Good things in small packages.

Despite having this in print, I avoided purchasing the audiobook for a long time because of its shortness and because I had it in my mind that this is one of his lesser works - it is not. Pratchett's limitless command of the English language, his razor sharp world view and martini-dry sense of humor should make him a national treasure. It may only be 3-1/2 hours long, but you will never find a more superbly crafted 3-1/2 hours. Who else could cover the big bang, governemnt, religion, the fall of Troy, and what to do with with a half naked parrot in 3-1/2 hours? Like the previous reviewer, I laughed out loud during my commute.

Ah, Pratchett

I almost didn't download this one because it is much shorter than the other Discworld novels. After listening to all the others, I decided to go ahead and try it. I'm so glad I did. This book is a little gem in the Discworld crown. Better even than some of the longer ones. Get it. It's worth it.
