Bought on my Kindle, part of the Terry Pratchett Disc World series. Prompt service from Amazon as always. A brilliantly written tale about what happens when a child born - destined to become a wizard is found to be a girl - as natural heir there is no going back despite the fact it breaks tradition and the old Wizard has expired literally just prior to this revelation. Chaotic and hilarious its a brilliant book with many laugh out loud moments and well worth reading as a 'stand alone' or chronologically as part of the series.

I've only started reading the discworld books recently, which is a shame really given Sir Terry's recent passing. Fortunately, there are about 40 to go!
This is the third in the series, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It has the author's usual intelligence and wit, and a story where you always think you know where it is going, and then it goes somewhere (or somehow) completely different.
On to the next one...

Start with this, then read all the discworld witch books in order. Which makes up for this one being too short. Pratchett is particularly good at imagining his way into the mind of an eight year old girl, albeit one with special magical powers, and this book has the seeds of many ideas that are expanded on so thoughtfully in the later novels.

Going through the whole series. Just can't stop reading, one book after another.

As you'd expect from Pratchett, 'Equal Rites' ticks all the boxes. Funny, interesting and very enjoyable. New characters from the previous two books in the Discworld series however they are just as good. Although Rincewind and Twoflower are irreplaceable characters, Esk and Granny do just as good a job!

So well written, amusing, entertaining, absorbing. Pratchett is a master of this genre. Loved it looking forward to the next

This was a gift, so I can't really review it.

This was a gift for a family member. The item went down extremely well and the recipient loved it. Item arrived on time and with no issue.

Tickled the mind into thinking and laughing. Never expected to like it (a present) but loved it. Recommended to anyone whose brain wasn't completely frozen over (or maybe especially them). Five stars because it gave me so much joy.
