'Pratchett uses his other world to hold up a distorting mirror to our own . . . he is a satirist of enormous talent' The Times

The Discworld is very much like our own - if our own were to consist of a flat planet balanced on the back of four elephants which stand on the back of a giant turtle, that is . . .
___________________

'Destiny is important, see, but people go wrong when they think it controls them. It's the other way around.'

Three witches - Granny Weatherwax, Nanny Ogg and Magrat Garlick - have gathered on a lonely heath. A king has been cruelly murdered, his throne usurped by his ambitious cousin. An infant heir and the crown of the kingdom, both missing . . .

Witches don't have these kind of dynastic problems themselves – in fact, they don’t have leaders.

Granny Weatherwax was the most highly-regarded of the leaders the witches don't have. But even she found that meddling in royal politics was a lot more complicated than certain playwrights would have you believe . . .
___________________

The Discworld novels can be read in any order but Wyrd Sisters is the second book in the Witches series.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Like Jonathan Swift, Pratchett uses his other world to hold up a distorting mirror to our own, and like Swift, he is a satirist of enormous talent' - The Times

'One of the perennial joys of modern fiction' - Mail on Sunday

'One of the pleasures of the book is the way in which literary classics float effortlessly through them in a way that would be pounced on as inter-textual in another author but is never allowed to become strident or alienating in Pratchett's work' - Guardian

“Wyrd Sisters”

I love Terry Pratchett and the Wyrd Sisters was one of the first I ever read. The characters of the three witches are so different but they bounce off each other and interact perfectly, captivating the reader as the... More

“Fun!”

The Discworld books are so witty and clever, they are always fun to read - particularly the earliest ones. I really enjoyed this one which bears a very funny resemblance to the story of Macbeth.

“A twist on two William Shakespeare classics”

I was reading this book and I Realised that it sounded very Familiar sounded from Hamlet to Macbeth about a king being brutally murdered and someone is after his throne!
