Chapters are out of place and we cannot figure them out. Waste of money. :(

This review is specifically for the nook edition. It appears to have gotten mixed up in converting to nook. The last few chapters are displaced to the middle, which made it very confusing to read!

Page 49 of the Nook edition suddenly skips to the final few chapters of the book, not returning until page 114. Irritating.

If you are intrigued by Terry Pratchett's Discworld books, but don't know where to start; I would start with this one. When I read it the first time, I began waiting impatiently for the next and the next and the next book. In this book we are introduced to the perceived difference between male and female magic, several important settings, and some characters and ideas that flow through all the books. Besides, it is just TOO much fun to miss and doesn't require any background knowledge of Discworld to love every minute of it.

It's a good read just by itself, nice and clean storyline, not too cluttered with extra characters and tangents. I love the thinly veiled commentary on traditional gender roles! Pratchett writes such realistic female characters, I have met a few Granny Weatherwaxes in my time.

I enjoyed this book very much and periodically reread it. I've given it as a gift and recommend it to friends -- as well as buyers.

This review concerns the e copy only! The story it's self is great. Unfortunately, the e copy is all messed up. at page 50, it jumps to the last 3rd of the book, returning to Granny's letter to the Unseen University at page 114. I contacted a Barnes and Noble representative about this, they told me to archive my copy, and in 1-2 weeks their Content team would fix it. That was more than three weeks ago, and its still not fixed. I've complained a second time now. I will report back if they fix it this time.

What I thought was a jump forward in time was actually about 50 missing pages that turned up at the end.
