Light Fantastic was one of the first Pratchett I read, and I read them mostly in a hodge-podge order, as I was able to get my hands on them or when they weren't already borrowed from my school library 8-) as much as I enjoyed reading it at the time, I now prefer the TV adapation to the book *awaits the peltation of rancid fruit*

I can see that point. the movie did a decent job of tying the two books together (even if parts are missing.)

The only moan I had about the movie was the casting of David Jason as Rincewind. Other than that, I found it very enjoyable. :D
The difference between fiction and reality? Fiction has to make sense.

I didn't mind David as Rincewind. but the clearly last minute editing of the "gods are a bunch of bastards" line was unforgivable.
