Yeah it's pretty good. It's his first book so it explains a lot of things about Discworld for the first time and you also meet recurring characters for the first time such as Rincewind, Death and the Luggage. What is missing is his usual humorous lampooning of government and religion. It's good, but there are much better books of his out there.
