Description



Book Synopsis



"If you are unfamiliar with Pratchett's unique blend of philosophical badinage interspersed with slapstick, you are on the threshold of a mind-expanding opportunity." --Financial Times

Chaos ensues when Discworld's deliciously hapless wizard Rincewind goes walking about in the Down Under in this wonderfully witty satire from legendary internationally bestselling author Sir Terry Pratchett.

There's big trouble at the Unseen University, Ankh-Morpork's prestigious and only institute of higher learning. A professor is missing--and the one person who can find him is not only the most bumbling magician the school ever produced, he's currently stranded in Fourecks, Discworld's last (and unfinished) continent. The down-under is hot (so hot) and it's dry (so dry)--though it's rumored there was once this thing called The Wet, but no one believes that. Practically everything here that's not poisonous is venomous.

Discworld's most inept wizard and his companion, Luggage, are eager to get home--but first Rincewind has to survive a pushy mystical kangaroo trickster named Scrappy and a mob of Fourecks hooligans determined to hang him. All his problems would be solved if he could just make it rain . . . for (maybe) the first time ever. And if the time-traveling professors from UU working on rescuing him can get to the right millennium . . .

The Discworld books can be read in any order, but The Last Continent is the sixth book in the Wizards collection (and the 22nd Discworld book). The other books in the Wizards collection include:

From the Back Cover



There's big trouble at the Unseen University, Ankh-Morpork's lone institute of higher learning. A professor is missing--and the one person who can find him is not only the most inept magician the school ever produced, but currently stranded on the unfinished down-under continent of Fourecks.

As the UU faculty tries to bring him back, Rincewind is having troubles of his own, thanks to a pushy mystical kangaroo trickster named Scrappy and a mob of Fourecks hooligans who are out to hang him. All his problems would be solved if he could just make it rain . . . for the first time ever. And if the time-traveling professors can get to the right millennium . . .
