I was going to get Lords and Ladies on Saturday, what with it being one of the six Discworld books I hadn't got... but unfortunately I was on a budget, so I chose Men at Arms and Feet of Clay. Sorry to witch fans, but Carrot comes above Granny Weatherwax any day!

As a person who read Lords and Ladies before the others, I'd say I understood it, but it was easier to get some of the jokes after reading Witches Abroad (i.e the Wet Hen ones in the letter)

Reading 'Lords and Ladies' before 'Witches Abroad'

Postby Slobberchops » Sun Jun 05, 2011 8:42 pm

Yes, 'Lords and Ladies' does make sense as a novel in its own right. I have never read any Discworld novels until this one and there is sufficient detail to make it clear. Some things I have wondered about, but the answer is usually there when I look for it.

I am hoping to direct 'Lords and Ladies' as a play next year. Wish me luck.
