Witches Abroad: You Can't Fight A Happy Ending...Or Can You?

Advantages, Funny, witty, well written and quirky book - one of the best Discworld novels.

DisadvantagesNone.

"...of the giant turtle A'Tuin, witches Granny Weatherwax, Nanny Ogg and Magrat Garlick have a problem. Magrat has inherited the magic want of Fairy Godmother Desiderata Hollow, and has quite accidentally found herself to be the new magical guardian to Genuan serving girl Emberella. Fairy tales throughout the Discworld have a habit of playing themselves out, and although fated to marry the Duke (who is secretly a frog) the late Desiderata had promised ..." Read review

Witches Abroad

Advantagesgood humor

Disadvantagesnot unique

"Witches Abroad is the 12th book in the discworld series written by Terry Pratchett. Although I found book 11 Reaper man funny this book is bit lighter and does not have anyone die in it. Witches Abroad features the discworld's most funniest characters Nanny Ogg.Granny Weatherwax and finally Magrat Garlic. The best way to describe Granny (Esme) Weatherwax would be to describe her as a spoilt kid or in this case a witch who always gets her own way. ..." Read review

Everyone loves a happy ending... don't they?

AdvantagesVery funny, great characters, great story

DisadvantagesGets a little baudy in places

"...by wicked witches? The good witches have to go and stop it happening, of course!! Well actually there's a lot more to it than that, but there you have the basic plot. When someone's Fairy Godmother dies, she entrusts her job to none other than Magrat, a young witch who is almost by her own admission a "wet hen". She tries desperately hard not to be, but there you are - that's what she is. The recently deceased Fairy Godmother, Desderita, wants ..." Read review

The old hags go travelling

Advantagesfunny and easy to read,

Disadvantagesnone

"...you will be entertained and Witches Abroad is just as good as the others. The start of the book takes us to a cottage in the woods, where an old witch Desiderata is getting ready to pass away, all witches of course know the exact time and place of their death so they can prepare for it. Death who makes an appearance in most of Pratchetts books is standing watching the old witch get ready. She leaves a note and a package with the poacher and jumps ..." Read review

Bewitched

AdvantagesFunny, entertaining

DisadvantagesNot as good as some of his other books

"...a range of characters, from witches and wizards to soldiers and nobles and even Death himself. The central characters for this book are witches, but even they have their own, distinct personalities. ~~~ The Setting ~~~ The Discworld is flat, with a warm, tropical Rim around the edge and an icy mountain range, the Ramtops, in the centre. The Ramtops are very magical and tend to produce witches and wizards. There are dwarves and trolls living there, ..." Read review
