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?

    "" Phenomenal " in every sense of the word."

    Terry Pratchett's best "Witches" book by far. It's a must read for anyone new to the Disc world series.

    "A fun story about stories... and witches of course"

    A well read Disk World story that takes the listener to some new locations... or not... I guess it depends upon what order one does the books.

    "What is wanted and needed"

    Very interesting and amazing characters, with a wonderful lesson or two. I have come to truly enjoy Terry Pratchett's work. Nigel Planer is a wonderful narrator, always very well nauseated and the various characters have there own personality and attitude. It's such a small thing, but it makes a big difference.

    "V comforting"

    I'm currently living abroad and I've listened to this at least four times since I got here. It's very comforting to hear them talk about the funny little differences between home and "foreign parts".
    I love this book and this performance is simply divine.

    "Great story. Bad sound quality."

    Sounds like it was transferred off an old cassette recording. They should have cleaned up the hissing a bit.

    The actor was fine except I'm not crazy about his Magrat.

    Story
    "A Story about Stories"

    As much as I like Nigel Planer as a reader, I don't usually like how he handles female characters -- I feel like his talent seems to suddenly dry up on females. However, he is utterly FANTASTIC at handling the witches! His voices for Nanny Ogg and Granny Weatherwax are truly spot on. Some of the others in this book . . . well, I don't mind so much, purely because of how brilliantly he does the witches.

    Now onto the story itself:

    At a few points in this novel, I think Pratchett got a little heavy-handed with the exposition, which is really the only shortcoming he ever had as a writer, in my opinion. The story itself is marvelous: Magrat Garlick becomes a fairy godmother and embarks on a journey to save a Cinderella-esque young lady from the fate of storydom, accompanied by Nanny Ogg and Granny Weatherwax (two traveling companions whom we can all be very grateful we've never had to travel with). One neat thing about this particular novel is that you do get to see a bit more of Discworld than you typically get -- most novels are just set in one location, typically Ankh Morpork or perhaps Lancre. It's a very fun travel story blended with spoofs of a few different fairytales. Definitely a novel that I enjoy rereading and listening to over and again.
