Explore the mysteries and peculiarities of the universe with a cast of wizardly characters from Unseen University in the fantastic first book in Terry Pratchett’s Science of Discworld series!
When a wizardly experiment goes a drift, the wizards of Unseen University find themselves with a pocket universe on their hands: Roundworld, where neither magic nor common sense seems to stand a chance against logic. The Universe, of course, is our own. And Roundworld is Earth. As the wizards watch their accidental creation grow, we follow the story of our universe from the primal singularity of the Big Bang to the internet and beyond.
Written by Terry Pratchett story with intervening chapters from professional science boffins Jack Cohen and Ian Stewart we discover how puny and insignificant individual lives are against a cosmic backdrop of creation and disaster. Yet, paradoxically, we give watch to how the richness of a universe based on rules, has led to a complex world and at least one species that tried to get a grip of what was going on.
