In the first installment, Twoflower, a tourist to the land of Discworld, has arrived with his animate luggage and hires the hapless wizard called Rincewind to be his guide and translator. Thus begins a fun tour through some of the odd lands and ending, of course, at The Edge. The luggage was definitely my favorite character (and I use that word loosely). I certainly would enjoy having a suitcase or touring chest made of sapient pearwood that could deal with thieves, or anything that gets between it and its owner, all by itself.

I enjoyed The Color of Magic and have the next book on hold at my library. It seems that the books aren't so much organized chronoligcally but rather by themes. For instance, I can pick one that takes a satirical look at Mysteries, MacBeth, or the 'coming of age' genre.
