Publisher's Summary

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?

    "Just know that you can't go wrong in this series"

    So I joined audible to get my hands on the Discworld audiobooks. That should give some warning about the tone of the following review.

    This whole series is fabulous, and this particular entry is one of my favorites. I adore the witches, and this book features the original 3 in fine form. Granny Weatherwax will always, always be my favorite, but everyone in here is a great character.

    Pratchett is a master wordsmith as well as being a master storyteller, and I will say that there are few authors I would seek out both the audio and print versions of a book for, and he is one of them. Yes, get the audiobook, because it's fantastic, but also, if you find the print version, read that too, because in either media form, there will be new nuances and turns of genius brought to light.

    Nigel Planer is a fantastic narrator (both the main narrators of the series are excellent. I truly could not pick my favorite), and this gets two thumbs up from me (take my word for it)!

    "Incredible"

    Nigel Planer has more voices than one human being should! He brings the characters to life brilliantly. Hard to stop listening. Great story from the master Terry Pratchett!

    "Funniest of the Pratchett books"

    As a world traveler and a person who greatly appreciates Nanny Ogg and Granny Weatherwax, I found this to be the most delightful of all the Pratchett books. I listen to it over and over.

    "Granny Weatherwax Rocks!"

    I'm working my way through all of Pratchett's work and so far, stories involving the Witches are at the very top of my list and Granny Weatherwax is my hero! Nigel Planer's voice inside my head adds life and color to the characters and to the story. Frankly, I never got into Pratchett's written words before listening to Planer read them, but now that he is permanently ensconced in there, I hear him even when reading the written words. But, back to Granny, I'd LOVE to start a fan club - even a coven based on headology! - Could be worlds of fun! I'd say if you never read any of Pratchett's work, by all means, run through the list and pick out all those with Granny at the center of the story!
