“Once Upon A Time...”

published 01/08/2015

ProThe witches are back

ConsNone

Meanwhile, back on Discworld, stories continue to have their sway. Lots of people don't love the Discworld series to the extent that I do, and there are many reasons for that. Some of them just don't have the right kind of sense of humour. That's fine. We don't all find the same things funny. The...

ConsNone.

Witches Abroad! Published in 1991, 'Witches Abroad' is the 12th of Terry Pratchett's 'Discworld' series of novels, and is the 3rd of the series to feature the much loved characters of Weatherwax, Ogg and Garlick, the Lancre witches. I actually first read this and a vast array of the Discworld...

“The old hags go travelling”

published 29/03/2003

Profunny and easy to read,

Consnone

Out of all the Terry Pratchett books, I love the stories about the three witches. Granny Weatherwax, Nanny Ogg and Magrat. Whichever book you pick up and read about these three, you will be entertained and Witches Abroad is just as good as the others. The start of the book takes us to a cottage...

“Witches Abroad”

published 17/02/2010

Progood humor

Consnot 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...

ProVery funny, great characters, great story

ConsGets a little baudy in places

What happens when fairy tales are controlled 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...

“Bewitched”

published 25/01/2006

ProFunny, entertaining

ConsNot as good as some of his other books

This book is the twelfth in the Discworld series. Though its not necessary to be familiar with his other works, some parts of this story would benefit from the reader having some prior knowledge. The Discworld books may all take place on the same world, but this world is as varied as our own...

“Excellent”

published 25/09/2000

ProWitty and complex.

This is one of my favourite Terry Pratchett books. There is the usual healthy dose of the supernatural and surreal, whilst being just grounded enough to make sense. He often parodies subjects in his novels and with this one it is fairy tales and folk law. Granny, Nanny and Magrat have to journey...

“The Best of Pratchett!!”

published 26/04/2005

Prowitty, compeling and an easy read

Consnone

One of the amny discworld novels Terry Prachett has written, and one I truly enjoyed. His writing style is unique, confusing at times but brilliantly comical. If you've read any of his others in the discworld series, and loved it you'll love this one. Based around fairytales and fairy God Mothers...

“Too Much Fairy Tale”

published 01/09/2000

The only criticism I have of Pratchett is his reliance on established stories. Shakespeare ripped off all his plots as well, but that doesn't make it right. Witches Abroad pretty much relies on poking fun at all the European stereotypes and really overdoing the stealing from a bunch of fairy...

“Weird sisters on holiday”

published 21/02/2004

ProVery readable, very funny

ConsNot many that I can see

I loved this book. The characters are more fully rounded here, being fleshed-out with little personality tics that both endear them to you and make them easy to identify with. They become almost like old friends. I really liked the use of fables, folklore and urban myths as a narrative to pin the...

Proterry prattchett wrote it

Conssamey and more boring than usual

i really like all of terrys books but this book along with the carpet people seems to be terry running out of ideas for a new story line.The characters he uses are quite similar to the ones used in other storys which makes it lack excitement as it seems like you've read thg story before.I would...
