Wyrd Sisters (book review)



Wyrd Sisters, by Terry Pratchett, is the story of three witches: Nanny Ogg, Magrat Garlick, and Granny Weatherwax. They are generally non-social witches who don't meddle in people's business unless necessary. However, when an evil duke steals the throne in the kingdom of Lancre, it will take everything they've got to thwart his plans and put the true king on the throne.

I loved this book, but not as much as I did its prequel, Equal Rites. The characters in both were different and fun, and the settings were new and exciting! I would recommend Terry Pratchett's Discworld books to anyone who's looking for a unique twist on fantasy.

Although I like this book a lot, it's probably my least favourite of the Witches books. You have Witches Abroad to read too, right? That one I just LOVE. Lots of fairy tale motifs that you will hopefully enjoy as much as I did.

Equal Rites is a great one too. It makes me sad that Esk never showed up in another Discworld book.

One of my book groups was supposed to read Wyrd Sisters this month. I realized it was part of a series so I picked up the first book The Colour of Magic but I can't get past the prologue.
