When last seen, the singularly inept wizard Rincewind had fallen off the edge of the world. Now magically, he's turned up again, and this time he's brought the Luggage.But that's not all...Once upon a time, there was an eighth son of an eighth son who was, of course, a wizard. As if that wasn't complicated enough, said wizard then had seven sons. And then he had an eighth son -- a wizard squared (that's all the math, really). Who of course, was a source of magic -- a sorcerer.

Review of 'Sourcery (Discworld Novel S.)' on 'GoodReads'

3 stars

I honestly don't know how much of my enjoyment of this book is nostalgia for the Discworld MUD and how much is actual enjoyment. As much of the book deals with the UU and the orders it's hard not to wistfuly recall the hours spent working my way through the library and making trips down to the Drum.

But the book... the pacing is a little wonky, but the jokes are there and unlike TCOM it has a firm plot. Rincewind's sacrifice and character arc may not entirely be earned, but I remember the first time I read it, this was quite sad.
