Description

Pratchett, when asked about it in a Good Omens context said, "Liber Paginarum Fulvarum is a kind of shared gag. The book appears in Good Omens as well as in The Sandman, where it is used in an attempt to summon Death (although the colourist didn't get the joke and simply coloured the pages brown). Esk and Simon go on to develop a new kind of magic, based on the notion that the greatest power is the ability not to use all the others.

Eskarina and Simon discover the weakness of the creatures from the Dungeon Dimensions - if you can use magic, but don't, they become scared and weakened. The bad points can be forgiven in retrospect: it was his third and the books that follow just get better and better.

Reading this after I've just finished the Tiffany Aching Discworld books makes me draw a lot of parallels.

Caparula commented that "While not a terribly original concept, it comes alive here amidst the fanciful farce and is treated with a sense of wonder.

Everybody knows there’s no such thing as a female wizard, but on the death of Drum Billet, the universe decided that the eighth son of an eighth son was going to be a daughter and his magic staff was passed to Eskarina (Esk, for short). So go home, cook some lovely potions, leave the evil, complicated, over your pink small brain, complex mathematical calculations, and magic physics to the strong gender, avoid the nasty monsters and demons you would immediately faint when just hearing them coming closer, we protect you from that, if you would be conscious it would make you scream even more than the little girl you are if you saw them, haha.

Sure, Granny makes allowances for Esk at some point, but she never stops having prejudiced opinions about everything. Justamente este es el primer libro que conforma la saga de las brujas, pero que sin embargo el lector puede pasar al segundo porque no hay relación directa entre los dos libros. She went from “this is how it has always been, so we’re going to follow tradition” to “why does it have to be this way? Try to analyze how her character changes over the novels, one of the few greater evolutions of a main character in the Pratchettiverse. Right before the wise old wizard Drum Billet died, he passed on his magical staff of power to the newborn eighth son of an eighth son.Even in the Nineties, a fair number of Moggies are still going, "strong" and, particularly the split-screen ones, are very definitely collectors' items. Terry Pratchett fantastiğe sarmaladığı günümüz ile, inanılmaz dili, akışkanlığı, espri anlayışı ile muazzam bir adam/yazar. There's nothing wrong with it, mind you, but it was still very early on in Pratchett's career, and it doesn't have the smoothness of his later work.
