kwmg40 I'd read this at the beginning of the year, so I decided not to reread it so soon. I recall liking the satirical elements but I wasn't all that enthusiastic about the story itself. I think I would have appreciated it much more if I were familiar with Faust. I'll probably postpone a reread of Eric until after I read Faust, and I'm sure it'll seem much funnier then. 2w

willaful Eric definitely feels slight after the high stakes of Sourcery. It is very funny though. 2w

julesG Re-reading the Rincewind books, Rincewind is slowly growing on me. I enjoyed reading my illustrated edition alongside the audiobook. 2w
willaful I thought the character of the Creator was very similar to Slartibartfast from The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. 2w
TheSpineView I agree with @julesG that Rincewind is growing on me too. I liked this take on Hell is paved with good intentions. However, it did get a bit confusing and convuled bit always humorous. 2w
willaful @TheSpineView The hell is wonderful. I found myself wondering if this had provided some inspiration for “The Good Place.“ 2w
BookWrym I was more caught up by the Greek mythology. Hell reminded me of Dante‘s Inferno. I did enjoy the demons as well and how easy they were to confuse. 2w
julesG @kwmg40 I had to read Goethe's Faust in school. Which means we also talked about the other Faust/Bargain with the Devil stories. 2w
julesG Eric summoning a demon always brings up Jonathan Stroud's Bartimaeus trilogy (YA, definitely darker than Pratchett). There's a summoning scene at the beginning of Bartimaeus that is very similar, probably because Bartimaeus is a very sarcastic demon. 😁 2w
julesG @BookWrym What Hell would look like if Dante had had Cheerios for breakfast. 😁 2w
kwmg40 Sorry for commenting on the wrong thread! As you can tell, I‘m not all that good at reading instructions. 😂 Anyhow, I‘m enjoying reading the comments here! 2w
BookmarkTavern I think this is my favorite Rincewind book! It‘s so humorous, and I‘ve read Faustian stories before, so I thought I knew where everything would go, but the sort of djinn interpretation of Eric‘s wishes just made me laugh out loud. 2w
julesG @kwmg40 no problem, that's why I answered here. 😉 2w
BarbaraJean @julesG @TheSpineView I definitely liked Rincewind better here than in Sourcery, but I kind of feel like I'm marking time until I can get to the Pratchett I really like. I'm interested to make my way through the Discworld beyond my previous brief forays, but I'm understanding what people mean when they've said I'll prefer certain sub-series to others. @willaful I wondered the same thing about this maybe being an influence on The Good Place! 1w
willaful @BarbaraJean It's interesting how many of us fans aren't really into the Rincewind books.

I searched but couldn't anything specifically saying TGP created mentioned Pratchett, but definitely a lot of people have seen the similarities.

julesG @willaful wouldn't be the first TV series borrowing ideas from books without acknowledging it. 1w

3.5⭐️ For the most part, I enjoyed this read. There were some things that were a bit far fetched, but I had a good time reading it. Read it for the latest Book Cougars #readalong. #2024 #romance #fantasy #fiction #bookreview
