5.0 out of 5 stars
One of the best of the lot, 2 Nov. 2000
I haven't read this in a while but I'm surprised to see someone give it only three stars. The relationship between the three witches, the blind faith and unwavering superstitions of visitors abroad, the power of belief(s) and the fact that everyone (seems to) love a good story - well, it just makes for a great story. The indomitable Granny Weatherwax, worldly-wise Nanny Ogg and the greenhorn fairy godmother Magrat are the epicentre of a whirling fantasy twining of story, myth, fairytale and belief that is brilliantly breathless. It has suspense, surprises, made me laugh out loud (on the tube), and made me feel good. All you expect really.
