What could be easier than preventing a servant girl from marrying a prince, especially for 3 clever witches? But Granny Weatherwax, Nanny Ogg, and Magrat Garlick face more than they bargained for when they journey to the distant city of Genua. For one thing, their power is limited to Mrs. Gogol's weak voodoo spells, a one-eyed cat, and a second-hand magic wand that only works on pumpkins. Furthermore, the Godmother has made Destiny an offer it can't refuse. Do servant girls have to marry the prince? Is that what life's all about?

Listener Opinions

    " Terry Pratchett takes on the fairy godmother trope and has huge amounts of fun with it. Granny Weatherwax, Nanny Ogg and Magrat head to Genua to save Emberella from marrying the prince. On their way, they knock all sorts of stories on the head, from Lord of the Rings to Little Red Riding Hood - but awaiting them in Genua is something much more terrible. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Llael | 1/12/2014

    " One of my favorites by Terry Pratchett so far. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Andre | 1/8/2014

    " Another funny Pratchett, this time tackling stories. The characters are so well built that just setting up the scene makes you smile in anticipation. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Caroline Niziol | 12/30/2013

    " My favorite of the Discworld books so far -- fun, fast-paced, and just the right hint of the horrible. A new favorite! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jayne Charles | 12/15/2013

    " One of the better books about the Witches....this one packs in as many fairy tale cliches as possible, explains the secret of blacksmithery, and allows Greebo the cat to really build up his part. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Charles Spivey | 12/12/2013

    " Loved this so much. Nanny's letters home were great as was the relationship between the witches. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lauren | 12/7/2013

    " Awesome. Reminds me of Gregory Maguire even though this one was written earlier than most of his, I think. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kate Schindler | 11/21/2013

    " This was the first Discworld novel I ever read, and I read it because it looked like a fairytale. Obviously I loved it, even though the witches aren't my favorite set of characters. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Macie | 11/5/2013

    " Pratchett's writing has gotten so much better over the years that this relatively early story seems kind of weak. But Granny Weatherwax kicks enough ass make up for it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Anthea Strezze | 10/29/2013

    " Review to be added later. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Andrea Houdek | 10/20/2013

    " What's not to love about the witches trilogy within the Discworld series? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mireia Via | 8/27/2013

    " I love those whitches, and I lol'd quite much with Nanny Ogg's postcards! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kaylynn | 7/19/2013

    " A funny book but a few words of profanity so I'm only giving it 3 stars "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 James | 7/18/2013

    " quick ready ,again very fun "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lizabeth | 7/13/2013

    " The sections which parody Lord of the Rings are priceless! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ciara | 2/24/2013

    " Not my favorite, but good. I like the parody of New Orleans. Granny Weatherwax and Nanny Ogg go off with Magrat to help her in her new role as fairy godmother. Because it's Pratchett, witches DO NOT have to do magic. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Linda Redding | 2/18/2013

    " I love the stories by Terry Pratchett. This title may well be the best in the whole series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lorelei | 1/19/2013

    " Still and always, one of my favourites. "..., but they went the long way; and saw the elephant." "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karina | 10/27/2011

    " Reread for what? the 20th time? and still as funny and smart as the first time. Reread September 2011. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer | 2/12/2009

    " I do love these ladies. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Maher | 12/28/2008

    " Not exactly the easiest read of the Discworld novels but has some great satire and commentary under the surface. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nilchance | 8/16/2007

    " This whole book was amazing. In my fickleness, I just went from "Death's books are my favorite!" to "the witch books are my favorite!" "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 John | 5/6/2007

    " another ofmy favourite pratchett characters , well all three witches really. Evan grebbo. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tom | 9/3/2005

    " Typical, funny, light read. Bubblegum for the brain. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michael Flanagan | 10/8/2003

    " Pratchett delivers again a story about stories. Featuring pumpkins, fairy godmother, witches, zombies and of course Death. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Pamela | 9/10/2003

    " I wish that he would write more about the witches. They are DEATH are by far the my favorite characters. The city of course has many more opprotunities for story lines, but I would like to see the books get out of town for a while. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Leah | 1/2/2002

    " I am falling in love with discworld. The essence of so many important places in our world are revisited through Pratchett's eyes. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marta | 11/29/2000

    " Love the witch characters as always, but the plot is a bit thin. Great to see Greebo in human form, and some of the jokes are superb. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kayla | 2/10/2000

    " Magrat, Granny, and Nanny travel to the city of Genua to help their godchild not marry a prince. Pratchett with his usual warmth and comfort writes a clever tale that left me snorting with glee. He satirizes tourism, plays around with fairy tales, and manages to create three enjoyable characters. "
