Overview

Wyrd Sisters (Discworld Series #6) (Turtleback School & Library Binding Edition) by Terry Pratchett

Terry's Pratchett's profoundly irreverent novels are consistent number one bestsellers in England, where they have catapulted him into the highest echelons of parody next to Mark Twain, Kurt Vonnegut, Douglas Adams, and Carl Hiaasen.

Meet Granny Weatherwax, the most highly regarded non-leader a coven of non-social witches could ever have. Generally, these loners don't get involved in anything, mush less royal intrigue. but then there are those times they can't help it. As Granny Weatherwax is about to discover, though, it's a lot harder to stir up trouble in the castle than some theatrical types would have you think. Even when you've got a few unexpected spells up your sleeve.

A student introduced the English department at my university to Terry Prachett's books and I'm beginning to suspect that 'he' is really a woman because he knows way too much about older women. This is a hilarious book in which I seem to recognize myself in both Granny Weatherwax and Nanny Ogg, not to mention my penchant for trying to save baby birds and crying when they die, like Magrat Garlick. I have read about 12 Discworld books over Christmas break and have just ordered 7 more. I lent my copy of Wyrd Sisters to a fellow faculty member whose area is Renaissance drama, and he called me to inform me that I am en evil woman because he will now have to buy all twenty- something books too. Terry Prachett's books are emphatically NOT for adolescents only. The allusions to literature, folklore, fairy tales, and mythology make them little primers in general literary knowledge. This book is based on MacBeth with some folklore and social comment thrown in, but the characters of the three wyrd sisters are truly wonderful. Buy this book. Buy the series. These are at least as good as the Harry Potter series and I never thought I'd say that about any books.

This book was a lot of fun to read! Great characters and the plot moved along well.

I loved this. I've read some of the Discworld series, still in the early stages, but I adore the witches. They're kind, but also a bit tricky and eccentric, and loads of fun. Who else to be the guardians of justice than 3 slighted witches who could've inspired Shakespeare? Add in a wronged and murdered king, not one but two lost sons, a hostile takeover, a kingdom unhappy, a rag tag theater group, Death in the wings, and a host of other fun characters and you get a wild ride only to be found in this famous series. I can't count the times I chuckled aloud or got deep into the plot completely losing track of time. You never really know where a discworld story is going to go, and that's half the fun! Talk about surprises along the way. I was so amused by the ending. Another great read. Can't wait to see what comes next.

This is just one of the over 30 books of Pratchetts, and I have read (and own) most. There is not a single bad Discworld novel! I could not have made it through some seriously hard times without Discworld to run to. Read them all! You will not be sorry!

Wyrd Sisters is one of the rare books that made me laugh out loud. This is my 3rd copy as I keep giving mine to my friends to read. The witches have some very unexpected problems and pull off some very funny solutions.
