Well Granny is a bit different in Wyrd sisters from Equal Rites anyway.

Finished Wyrd Sisters and loved it! Definitely one of my favourites so far. I think Magrat was my favourite thing about this book. She's brilliant. :lol:

On to Snuff next. :)

I've always had a soft spot for Magrat myself. :wink:

How many have you got to go in the series? Once I've finished Snuff I will have read all of the books. :) That's 32 since I started this thread. :)

Well done Dave... I was wondering how you got on. Image

The different witches books show up different sides to them Char.

Magrat has her very own view to witching and her place in the Discworld. I saw her first as a bit of an underdog but she is a strong girl who gets her own way. She is a strong character in the end.

Now that I have finished Snuff I will probably steering clear of Pratchett works for a while now, probably until the The Long Earth comes out (haven't decided about HB v PB on that yet). Been reading solid Pratchett for just over 2 years now and after over 50 books its time for something new.

I read a couple of pages before giving it as a present. As funny but not an urgent buy for me.
