Wyrd Sisters is about three witches in the Discworld - it's the sixth or seventh book in the series but it's the one that introduces the witch characters so I thought I'd start with this one rather than the real first one. The story itself isn't spectacular or anything, but Pratchett's writing truly is fantastic. He uses so many references, so many joeks - I'm sure that I missed half of them and was still amused. It's intelligent writing and I like that.
Everything I read these days gets 4 stars and I'm waiting for a 5-star book. I was hesitating with Wyrd Sisters so it gets 4.5. :-)
Hi, Joanna! I *love* Terry Pratchett, but the Witch books are not usually my favorites. Nor are the ones with Death's daughter, Susan. I go for the ones starring the Night Watch. Samuel Rhimes, Carrot, Nobby, I love those guys!! "Feet of Clay" comes to mind as one I really enjoyed. Also, the real early ones with Rincewind the Wizard and his companion, Luggage. Those still make me smile!
Thanks for the recommendations! I was thinking of starting the series from the beginning with Color of Magic, but that won't be for a while considering all the other stuff I want to get through!
