Something is amiss at Unseen Unversity, Ankh-Morpork's most prestigious (i.e., only) institution of higher learning. A professor is missing--but a search party is on the way! A bevy of senior wizards will follow the trail wherever it leads--even to the other side of Discworld, where the Last Continent, Fourecks, is under construction. Imagine a magical land where rain is but a myth and the ordinary is strange and the past and present run side by side. experience the terror as you encounter a Mad Dwarf, the Peach Butt, and the dreaded Meat Pie Floater.

Feel the passion as the denizens of the Last Continent learn what happens when rain falls and the rivers fill with water (it spoils regattas, for one thing). Thrill to the promise of next year's regatta, in remote, rustic Didjabringabeeralong. It'll be asolutely gujeroo (no worries).

    Pratchett ha una passione smodata per le citazioni.

    E' attribuito al biologo inglese J.B.S. Haldane il pensiero che "Dio ha una passione smodata per gli scarafaggi" (perchè ci sono più specie di scarafaggi rispetto a qualsiasi altro insetto, e più s ...(continue)

    Io ho una passione smodata per Pratchett !

    Rincewind books will never be among my favourite discworld books (in fact, I'm starting to think that Discworld fans could be divided between Rincewind fans and Vimes fans...). The Last Continent is pretty interesting in the parts with the Wizards on Mono Island, and even some of the Rincewind parts are not SO terrible, but it's still a mediocre book.

    Igual soy yo, pero me ha parecido una tremenda decepción. Lioso y lleno de referencias humorísticas que supongo que tengan muchísima gracia si el lector conoce Australia, el libro se tira la primera mitad sin explicar qué está ocurriendo, y a partir de entonces comienza vagamente a dar pinceladas de qué pasa, pero de una forma tan somera que llega a desesperar.

    También desespera la reiteración siempre en los mismos temas: el libro trata únicametne un par de temas de fondo, y Pratchett está toda la novela dale que te pego con lo mismo hasta que llega a hacerse muy cansino.

    Sólo el personaje de Ricewind, aquí igual de encasillado que siempre, consigue salvar mínimamente la obra para que no se quede con sólo una estrella.

    Leído cuando P&J decidió sacarlo en desorden. Fue fantástico descubrir a Rincewind en No-Es-Australia, tras saltarse la editorial 3 libros en medio (lo publicaron después de Rechicero).

    Es mágico lo que Pratchett logra crear mezclando el mundo aborigen 'australiano' y Mundodisco.
