Eric, by Terry Pratchett

Eric (Discworld, #9) Eric by Terry Pratchett

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I always enjoy Terry Pratchett's books, and this one was no exception. Still, I'm not as big a fan of the Rincewind books as I am some of the other Discworld characters. Nothing against the cowardly, inept wizard. Lord knows I'd probably react to the dangers of Discworld the same way he does...still, I prefer the Witches books, or the Guards, or the Moist von Lipwig books.

Having said that, this is an enjoyable, good quick read though. Rincewind is summoned by a young teen age boy named Eric (the eponymous title character) who wants three wishes. Hilarity and confusion (as is usual in Discworld, or our own Roundworld much of the time, come to think of it) ensues.

I'd give it 3.5 stars if the option were available.

i've seen this at Borders. the thing that keeps me from buying it is having to pay full-price for a mighty thin book.
