It's Midsummer Night-no time for dreaming. Because sometimes, when there's more than one reality at play, too much dreaming can make the walls between them come tumbling down. And there's usually a damned good reason for there being walls between them in the first place-to keep things out. Things who want to make mischief and play havoc with the natural order. Granny Weatherwax and her tiny coven are up against real elves. And even in a world of dwarfs, wizards, trolls, Morris dancers and the odd orang-utan, this is going to cause real trouble. With lots of hey-nonny-nonny and blood all over the place.… (mere)

Not his best, but still entertaining and enjoyable. ( )

"Humans are always lost. It’s a basic characteristic. It explains a lot about them."

This was a reread and I remember enjoying it more the first time round. I wasn't a huge fan of the start (I even considered putting this down - not a usual occurrence with Pratchett for me) but I'm glad I stuck it out because it got more enjoyable when the plot got properly started. I loved reading about Magrat her struggles around adjusting to a royal life and loved that we got to see more of her strength when the other witches weren't constantly putting her down (although their treatment of her still frustrates me having dealt with similarly cruel people). I found the elves interesting and would love to learn more about their world. There is a rather emotional moment towards the end and I'm a little surprised at how hard it managed to hit given I had read this before (albeit a few years back).

Overall this was a fun read with some great moments, but it isn't my favourite Discworld book. Maybe it was just a matter of the wrong book at the wrong time in my case, but I know others will absolutely love this one ( )

I think most of my Discworld reviews will be more or less the same, so this one will be short. I am probably enjoying the "Witches" series the most right now, which has a lot to do with Nigel Planer who masterfully translates the characters from the page into my ear. I can heartily recommend listening to the audiobooks! ( )

Slightly better than 3.5* but not as hilarious as the previous books in the Witches subseries. I liked the twist on Shakespeare's "A Midsummer Night's Dream" ( )

Lords and Ladies - Pratchett
Audio performance by Indira Varma and additional cast
3.5 stars

What a mash-up. Pratchett gives a nod to Shakespeare’s Midsummer Night’s Dream with the further adventures of Granny Weatherwax, Nanny Ogg and Magrat Garlick. There’s a dark elf invasion that threatens a royal wedding and life as the Discworld knows it.

This is the 14th Discworld book. The wedding serves as a reunion with some of my favorite characters. Mustrum Ridcully is overcome with nostalgia and memories of a past love. Count Casanunda, my favorite dwarf, is focused on current naughtiness with his favorite witch. The Librarian is seriously annoyed, OOOK. Magrat dons armor to fight her own fights. Greebo adds a new element to Schrodinger’s thought experiment. Seal a cat in a box? Three concurrent possibilities; the cat is alive, the cat is dead, the cat is bloody pissed off.

This updated audio performance enhances the experience. I did notice that the ‘original’ theme music has a distinctly Harry Potter vibe. ( )

In front of her [Nanny Ogg] the cat Greebo, glad to be home again, lay on his back with all four paws in the air, doing his celebrated something-found-in-the-gutter impersonation.
'I learned my craft from Nanny Gripes,' said Granny Weatherwax, 'who learned it from Goody Heggety, who got it from Nanna Plumb, who was taught it by Black Aliss, who --'

'So what you're saying is,' said Diamanda, loading the words into the sentence like cartridges in a chamber, 'that no one has actually learned anything new?'
Elves are wonderful. They provoke wonder.
Elves are marvelous. They cause marvels.
Elves are fantastic. They create fantasies.
Elves are glamorous. They project glamour.
Elves are enchanting. They weave enchantment.
Elves are terrific. They beget terror.
The thing about words is that meanings can twist just like a snake, and if you want to find snakes look for them behind words that have changed their meaning.
No one ever said elves are nice.
Much human ingenuity has gone into finding the ultimate Before. The current state of knowledge can be summarized thus: In the beginning, there was nothing, which exploded. Other theories about the ultimate start involve gods creating the universe out of the ribs, entrails, and testicles of their father. ** There are quite a lot of these. They are interesting, not for what they tell you about cosmology, but for what they say about people.
People think that they live life as a moving dot traveling from the Past into the Future, with memory streaming out behind them like some kind of mental cometary tail. But memory spreads out in front as well as behind. It’s just that most humans aren’t good at dealing with it, and so it arrives as premonitions, forebodings, intuitions, and hunches. Witches are good at dealing with it, and to suddenly find a blank where these tendrils of the future should be has much the same effect on a witch as emerging from a cloud bank and seeing a team of sherpas looking down on him does on an airline pilot.
