5.0 out of 5 stars Lancre's coven exposed! . . . er, revealed!
Parodying Shakespeare is a cottage industry among novelists. Few, however, have the talent to weave sound philosophy within the narrative. Pratchett introduces some thoughtful notions along with his compelling characters. From the introduction of Esme Weatherwax in Equal Rites, he fills out the coven residing in the kingdom of Lancre with her cohorts. Each brings a highly...

3.0 out of 5 stars The past is what people remember, and memories are words ....
Wyrd Sisters was the second Pratchett book I tackled after not picking up any of his Discworld novels for many years. I decided that I’d start reading these books again, starting with the Witches thread. And I'm happy to report that I'm enjoying them a lot.

Published back in 1988 it re-introduces Granny Weatherwax of Equal Rites fame. If you recall, Equal...

5.0 out of 5 stars my second book and its so funny, 28 July 2007

Well i treated myself to the witches rulogy as an xmas pressie to myself ad i handt got around to reading it..til i had my toth out recently..and it cheered me up no matter how much pain i was in. I adore granny weatherwax and her dark dark humpur and steadfast ways...nanny ogg is hilaroius as the type of witch in her da to come home with many a grass stain! Her cat is something to be afraid of but laugh at..
the plot i can see how is a parody of shakespeare but you havent got to have read any of his work in your life to find this funny.
I loved the plot..and i found it as good as the first..if not better!
havent read a single book then i would say begin with the witches trilogy or deaths trilogy.soo wonderful.

2.0 out of 5 stars Good book, poor narration, 11 Feb. 2012
By 
Mike (Isle of Harris) - See all my reviews
I wonder if talented Celia Imrie is a little ashamed of this careless performance and at what point she realised that her cut glass version of Mistress Weatherwax was a mismatch with the couthy dialogue.
Nanny Ogg had lost her earthy robust quality and the sound quality was also very poor. Annoying.
The book is a pleasant and clever ramble with wonderful Terry and deserved better.
