Book Review: Witches Abroad by Terry Pratchett

Witches Abroad at Powells.com Terry Pratchett does it again – he thoroughly amuses me, makes me laugh out loud, and forces me to annoy my friends by reading passages of this book out loud to them.

You know fairy godmothers? Cinderella? Fairy tales and children’s stories? Well, put those ingredients into Discworld, and know that anything odd that can happen, probably will.

Witches Magrat Garlick, Nanny Ogg, and Granny Weatherwax join forces to help Emberella avoid the happy ending her BAD fairy godmother has contrived for her. (What? You didn’t know that there are good fairy godmothers and bad fairy godmothers? This is Discworld – get used to it.) Along the way, they travel to foreign places, meet people trapped in Stories, and spread their own particular brand of mayhem.

Highly entertaining, laugh-out-loud funny, and the best way I can think of to spend $7. Let me know if you want to read any of his books – I’ve got several and would be quite happy to share.
