Things have to come to an end, see. That's how it works when you turn the world into stories. You should never have done that. You shouldn't treat people like they was characters, like they was things. But if you do, then you've got to know where the story ends.

That's the problem when you let real life get in the way of a good story. You shouldn't let it happen, especially when a good story involves three witches, including a fairy godmother, and travelling to a faraway land to make sure that a servant girl doesn't marry a prince. It looks as though a happy ending may be averted before catastrophe strikes. But unfortunately, the forces of good are up against a godmother who has made Destiny an offer it can't refuse.

    " Another of the witches' books, this is at the top of my personal Discworld favorites list. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Becci Aryal | 2/10/2014

    " Pratchett takes other stuff which has been around for centuries and weaves the flotsam to make a magic carpet of such complexity, so convincing that when you finish his books you come back to earth with a bump, yearning for your next sojourn in fantasy. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heather | 1/28/2014

    " Just the thing to cheer you up on dark days! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tegan | 1/11/2014

    " possibly my favorite discworld book so far "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Liz | 1/7/2014

    " 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. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marika | 1/4/2014

    " I liked it better when they got to Genua and the plot picked up. Fun and entertaining ! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary Meddlemore | 12/25/2013

    " Very, very funny - and marvelous, like all his books! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Grace | 12/13/2013

    " Well, I haven't finished yet...but I'm reading Meghan (Pippin)'s annotated copy, so I've "learned" quite a lot more than you'd expect... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Darceylaine | 12/4/2013

    " This book gets 4 stars just for the opening chapter, which is nearly perfect. It's so good I used excerpts in a worship service recently. The rest of the story is about average for Pratchett, but the opening words are priceless. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Theresa Oborn | 11/24/2013

    " I love the wyrd sisters, and seeing them together again, traveling abroad and meeting up with their voodoo counterparts, celebrating "Fat Lunchtime" was not a disappointment. Pratchett is never short on brilliant dialogue and keen observational humor. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Geraldine | 11/21/2013

    " Oh, this was such fun. I'm definitely going to read more Terry Pratchett. I loved the witches amd the way he brought them to life. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gavin | 10/14/2013

    " Hilarious, brilliantly written. When has Sir Terry Pratchett ever written a bad book? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cherri | 10/8/2013

    " Another great Terry Pratchet disc world novel. I love these. Great characters, hilarious situations, and magic! I recommend this for Harry Potter fans. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Palindrome Mordnilap | 6/30/2013

    " Whilst the witches series of Discworld novels is not my favourite, "Witches Abroad" is a definite highlight. Granny Weatherwax attempting to "speak foreign" is hilarious, and the parallels between Genua and its real world counterpart (New Orleans) are wittily observed. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 smhb | 6/12/2013

    " Loved this one. I have always loved this concept of the metaphysics of stories. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kerr Cuhulain | 3/26/2013

    " I am a major Discworld fan. The Wyrd Sisters series is one of my favorite series, being a Pagan. Great witch characters. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Danny Bennett | 9/25/2012

    " Just as hilarious as the other Pratchett books I've read and the plot moved a lot easier in this one as well. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Caroline | 9/10/2012

    " I love Granny Weatherwax, and the rating was cranked up even more for the sheer coolness factor of Greebo as a human. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kim | 5/25/2012

    " This Discworld book dealt with fairy tales which I love. Good quick read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gregory Rothbard | 4/8/2012

    " Got me wanting to read more of the DiscWorld Series.... great laughs and great fun... and yes escapism at its best. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Eric | 3/30/2012

    " I liked the story a bit more on the second read (Sept 2012). "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Margaretha Krug | 1/29/2012

    " Love the witch-books by Pratchett :) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 David Saliba | 9/14/2011

    " Had me laughing out loud. One of better Discworld books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Paraskevi | 5/19/2011

    " Any Discworld book with the 3 witches is worth at least 4 stars... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Silvia | 5/14/2011

    " If you love the witches of the Discworld and fairy tales, you´ll love this book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Theresa | 5/13/2011

    " I love the wyrd sisters, and seeing them together again, traveling abroad and meeting up with their voodoo counterparts, celebrating "Fat Lunchtime" was not a disappointment. Pratchett is never short on brilliant dialogue and keen observational humor. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Zana | 5/9/2011

    " I think this is my favorite witches book of Pratchett's. Yay! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Christopher | 5/8/2011

    " This one was quite a bit of fun. Also, a cure for anyone who likes politics too much. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tracey | 5/5/2011

    " This one was lots of fun! I adore the witches. I loved all the puns on place names and different cuisine, plus all the fairy tales. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Margaret | 4/21/2011

    " Took me a little while to get into this one, but it was still amusing. The trio of witches in this definitely add a whole new meaning to the old fairy tales. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 R. August | 2/28/2011

    " Again, good setting/weak plot, but as I've a soft spot for crotchety old people, I enjoyed the dialogue quite a bit while not caring a wit about the story. Still, unlike earlier novels, I was able to get through it and will move onto the next book soon. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Allison | 2/23/2011

    " Loved it! Pratchett has great insight into common human themes & archetypes and as always, Granny Weatherwax triumphs over all! "
