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?

    "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!

    "Cassette hiss"

    Fantastic story of course, but obviously ported over from a cassette. Distracting background hiss could be removed easily though. :/

    "More Terry Pratchett goodness."
    Any additional comments?

    I thought I had read all of Pratchett's work, until I ran across this one and realized I was wrong. This is our favorite witch coven (ahem) doing what they do best. Interfering in what other people got set up and generally sticking their nose into do what they think should be done. The story sets out fairly normally, and it is actually quite easy to tell which way they're going to jump at any juncture. And yet I still enjoyed the entire piece and mourn the loss of this great author. If you're a fan, pick it up. You won't regret it

    "Fun!"

    I love all of the Discworld novels, but to be honest the Witches novels are my least favorite story line. But I still enjoyed listening to it being performed. The reading is great, but the sound quality itself is fairly poor.

    "Early disc worls"

    Early Disc world not as good as his later stuff ...
    And still miles ahead of anything else!
    Nigel Planer is a gem
    The story starts out sloooowly and doesn't take off for awhile

    "" 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.
