In Wyrd Sisters, the enchanting world of Discworld is turned upside down by 3 meddling witches: Granny Weatherwax, Nanny Ogg, and Magrat Garlick. Their interference in royal politics causes kingdoms to wobble, crowns to topple, knives to flash, and citizens to shudder in fear. Terry Pratchett's vividly imaginative story takes you on a journey with hunchbacked monarchs, lost crowns, disguised heirs, refueling broomsticks, and frightening thunderstorms, as the three sisters battle the odds to restore the rightful king to the throne. This is the sixth book in the Discworld series.

    " woot! I was just in the mood for a good pratchett, and this was it. loved the interplay of the 3 witches, the romance between magrat and the fool, and tomjon and the players. perfect! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cheryl | 2/14/2014

    " This was the first book I read completely on a tablet. I don't think this was the best format to read this book. I found the device to be a distraction. The story line was kind of stop and go for me. I had a difficult time getting into the book (because of the device???). At times the story was very compelling at other times, I hardly understood what was happening. Hope I can speak intelligently at book club tonight. "

    " Just couldn't get into this one. Gave up after about 120 pages. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lucy Furr | 2/8/2014

    " This was a pretty enjoyable read, and one of the earlier Discworld books that I had skipped over. There is some very clever and funny banter between the three witches (and Granny Weatherwax, as always is a brilliant character) and the parody of/respect given towards Shakespeare's Macbeth is also pretty brilliant. All in all a fun read, but I wouldn't expect anything else from Mr. Pratchett. "

    " I got this book at The Globe Theatre in London. I thought that the description was innovative. The story has many literary allusions to Shakespeare. Like the three witches from Macbeth...plus the story line is rather similar to many of Shakespeare's plays. A King is murdered! A lost heir is found...ghosts of dead people....It's really cool! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Megan | 2/7/2014

    " Basically, this book was a little crazy--but I think it is a fun read. Especially if you are an abstract thinker! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Monshi P | 1/31/2014

    " Excellent intro to the witches of Lancre, and it's a great mash-up of a lot of Shakespearean plays. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Suzanne | 1/28/2014

    " Pratchett and the Witches plus Shakespeare as a dwarf. Doesn't get much better than this . . . "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amanda | 1/20/2014

    " I love Sir Terry Pratchett, and have done so since the first book I picked up by him 11 years ago. The things he write are always amusing, but they are also so deep and profound it gives you goosebumps - between your bursts of laughter. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Francis | 1/20/2014

    " One of my favorite Discworld novels so far. "

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

    " In this book, set in the kingdom of Lancre, the three witches face off against a usurping duke and a troupe of actors. Hilarity ensues. "

    " Nanny Ogg rules ! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Christopher | 12/28/2013

    " Good, appropriately entertaining Pratchett. You can tell it's one of his earlier ones because both the characters and the writing style aren't fully developed. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Leigh | 12/20/2013

    " So far I love it. This is my second of the Discworld books for adults and so far I'd say I like the ones for juveniles better. But this is fun. He's great at plays on words and little twists that turn normal thinking in a new direction. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Merand | 12/5/2013

    " The first book featuring Pratchett's coven of three very odd witches. These books are so much fun. If you don't read any other Discworld books, read Wyrd Sisters, Witches Abroad, and then Lords and Ladies. But remember--a good imagination and sense of humor are a must! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lindsey {Lindsey's Bookshelf} | 12/1/2013

    " one of his better discworld books "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jcrowl | 7/20/2012

    " If you like witty British humor and lots of puns, you'll love anything by Terry Pratchett, but this is his spoof on Shakespeare's Macbeth. Priceless! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gina | 3/15/2012

    " Classic Pratchett! Love it! "

    " Hugely entertaining story. My first introduction to Granny Weatherwax, Nanny Ogg and Magrat Garlick. It's such a pleasure to read something comic done so masterfully. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shouneez | 10/26/2009

    " My first Disc-World, and given that I managed to read it within a day, I think I'm well on my way to forging an addiction. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Margo Cronin | 7/6/2009

    " Great quotes - like "sit down there and call the cat a bastard" "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Katie | 6/9/2009

    " One of my faves of the series. Love the witches, love the Shakespeare. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Zohair | 5/24/2009

    " Not a good discworld book. Maybe Pratchett was getting tired by this point? I failed to find the original charm and wit that pulled me into The Color of Magic. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 pri | 1/24/2009

    " Funny at times - did make me want to read more of his books. The references and quotes, while clever in parts, were also heavy at times. "
