Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love Terry Pratchett You can't find an author that compares with Terry Pratchett's story telling abilities. So funny, smart and witty. Having read all his books I am at a loss of where to turn to next and nothing else measures up. Make sure you read these books in order of publication or you miss so many references and jokes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Funny! As mentioned in the preface, most of Terry Pratchett's (mayherestinpeace) books are standalone stories. This is an exception, where the story picks up from the previous Witches book. The good news is that they're all enjoyable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Riot of Fun One of the best of Terry's Witches books. All the usual crowd are in the most enjoyable romp, I particularly liked Magrat's antics in this one of Terry s best.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Screamingly funny Lords and Ladies, by Terry Pratchett, is an outright giggle-fest. Can't remember the last time I laughed so much while reading -- certainly not a book conducive to inducing somnolence. We returns to the witches of Discworld, Nanny Ogg, Granny Weatherwax and Magrat who is about to become Queen Magrat and finds herself in an identity crisis and bored to distraction. Boredom on Discworld, however, is never lasting ailment as proven by an attempting invasion by the Sidhe. Full of screamingly funny romance, Pratchett's deft ability as a story-teller, with a touch of social consciousness thrown in. A great summer, or anytime, read.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lords & Ladies In this novel, based on the Discworld setting, Pratchett creates a wonderfully humourous story around my favorite Discworld characters - Granny Weatherwax, Nanny Ogg, and Magrat Garlick. What ensues is an amazing roller-coaster ride of memorable scenes, humourous situations, witty anecdotes, and uproarous lines (I was particularly fond of the line "Go ahead, make my quiche", uttered by a cross-bow toting Margat to a usurping cook). Whenever I need a good laugh I pick up a Terry Pratchett novel and I have yet to be disappointed. Pratchett does for the fantasy genre what Robin Williams does for the movies. I have yet to read an author with the same humourous and satirical flair.
