I love this book. It contains some of my favourite Pratchett quotations, has three intricately-drawn main characters, witches all three, and my favourite Pratchett character of all time, Granny Weatherwax, she of the three vests (undershirts) under her dress and opinions and ways that are as unbendable as steel bars. In cahoots with Nanny Ogg, with her lust for life - food, drink (especially with bananananas and rum in it), sex, ruler of her extended family, and singer of unprintable songs. Then there's Magrat, who is, as Granny says, a bit wet, too inclined to worry about homeless hedgehogs and far too inclined towards occult jewelery, finding herself, and learning martial arts. When a fairy godmother dies and leaves Magrat her wand, the three witches must travel to a far-off city and battle the bad and rescue the good, although most of the time it's hard to tell which is which. (There's a witch/which pun there somewhere but I'm too tired to figure it out.)

Re-reading at least part of the Discworld series is part of this year's plan, as I am depressed and grieving and Pratchett's lively and upbeat books really cheer me up, whether they're set in Ankh-Morpork or the High Ramtops or anywhere else indeed. Witches Abroad was great place to start and I give it five stars and hearty recommendations. ( )

When Magrat inherits a Magic Wand and a goddaughter, the witches of Lancre travel to Genua to see the story to its end. With lots of pumpkins, dwarf bread, and Greebo along for the trip Esme Weatherwax, Gytha Ogg, and Magrat Garlick brave foreign parts and drinks with bananana in to see it all finished.
This is only the second time I have read this, I am not sure how I missed it for so long. My favorite part is Greebo towards the end. But the perspective on putting people in to stories is enjoyable, also. ( )

The fact that I gave this only 3 stars might be misleading. It is just that Pratchett sets the bar so high for himself that this thoroughly enjoyable book isn't quite as enjoyable as some of his others. ( )

More fun with Granny Weatherwax & friends as they travel to foreign parts to stop a fairy godmother from making people have happily ever afters, whether it’s wanted or not. Loved it. ( )

I'm finally enjoying the discworld as I knew I eventually would. And I grudgingly admit that the first 10 or so books, which I didn't like much, did contribute to this enjoyment. The fact that you already know a lot of the characters gives them some depth despite the length of the book.
Another thing is that I started with the audio books of this series, which I can wholly recommend. Especially because Nigel Planer does all the accents of the characters, which is an entirely new experience. ( )

Perhaps because the novel's picaresque structure seems commodious rather than contrived, one reads with less of an obtrusive sense of stage machinery being wheeled into place. Still, Pratchett's taste for complicated climactic scenes remains, so that his novels, rather than coming to a point as much comedy does, tend to blow apart like a firecracker.

Dedicated to all those people - and why not? - who, after the publication of Wyrd Sisters, deluged the author with their version of the words of 'The Hedgehog Song'.

Nanny Ogg quite liked cooking, provided there were other people around to do things like chop up the vegetables and wash the dishes afterwards.
Genua had once controlled the river mouth and taxed its traffic in a way that couldn't be called piracy because it was done by the city government.
