Maskerade

Postby peandrew » Tue Feb 07, 2012 1:35 am

Loved the book but it was a bit jumbly about the ghost honestly, I did like the twists about SPOILER: there being two people playing ghost but it was muddly even for a mystery. I would have liked Perdita to have been recognized for her singing talent in the end, it was a bit anticlimatic, for her to have such an amazing range and to simply end it with SPOILER: her doing a scale.
However, I really enjoyed the bits with the cook book, Henry Slug, and Greebo becoming a human mister fluffy. I was devouring this book all day but felt that no justice had really come to Perdita/Anges. But always a good read! OH! and the glimmering roses in the dark of the cellars were marvelous but I felt were unfairly SPOILER: trampled and left out. Thank you for the wonderful books!

Maskerade and Witches abroad are my favorite witch books.

about Agnes' ending, well, i'm guessing you didn't get the joke. :D

and i loved how Nigel Planer read the audio book. so hammy and "Operatic" at times. :lol:

Agnes, whether she likes it or not, is a witch and witches don’t get happy endings.

Oh, sure they do. Nanny Ogg both has both gotten and given plenty of happy endings in her lifetime! :D

Favorite song title ever. "She sits among the cabbages and leaks"

Gods that's so clever & funny. I laughed like a lunatic every time I read the Opera Ghost's notes.

I love this book it's so funny, especially the cookbook bits. This is the best example, imo, of Nanny and Granny working in tandem, and I get the feeling Terry had a lot of fun writing this one.
HO. HO. HO.
