Witches are not by nature gregarious, and they certainly don't have leaders.

Granny Weatherwax was the most highly-regarded of the leaders they didn't have.

But even she found that meddling in royal politics was a lot more difficult than certain playwrights would have you believe...

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 One of Pratchett's best This is one of the best of the Discworld books. It has many memorable characters, and scenes. Including one of that made me laugh out loud. Great satire and wonderful storytelling.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Magical Sir Terry Pratchett was a master of his craft and this is possibly my favorite of his works. I catch new puns and subplots every time I read it. You don't need to be a scholar of it, but familiarity with Shakespeare (particularly Macbeth) will lend humour that would otherwise be missed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I loved this While it isn't Terry Pratchett's first Discworld novel I recommend that its a good book to start with, as it sets up the premise of the magic world nicely and introduces characters that will come back in many later books.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wyrd Sisters As usual Terry Pratchett's style took me Into another world where granny weather wax seems to have things under control. Lovely way to escape the pressures of the day. If you haven't read any of these books try them. Death is an interesting character.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Wyrd Sisters This book was my very first Terry Pratchett book , picked up at the airport for a holiday read. I was hooked! I laughed out loud while reading! Sir Pratchett is a master story teller; his characters are well fleshed out and full of beans and personality. Plot twists and turns are hilarious . You can never go wrong buying a Terry Pratchett novel. Read them all! I did , many times. "Witches Abroad" is another favourite. I eagerly await his next novel!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Truly wonderful escapism We return to Granny Weatherwax in this installment from Discworld, and a hilarious parody of Shakespeare's MacBeth, of princes threatened and exiled, lost and then found, only to discover the play is the thing. As always, imaginative, witty, often downright silly. Truly wonderful escapism.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the finest Discworld novels "Wyrd Sisters" is the sixth Discworld novel and the first novel following the exploits of the witches Granny Weatherfax, Nanny Ogg and Magrat. (Granny was first introduced in the novel 'Equal Rites'.) This story is vintage Terry Pratchett, and one of the finest Discworld novels. The story is filled with mischief and intriguingly silly characters. The story flows so smoothly you could say it reads itself. Definitely a great read for lovers of witches, fantasy and/or humour, and a great entrypoint into the wonderful world of Terry Pratchett's Discworld.

From Our Editors

Witches certainly don’t have leaders and are not by nature gregarious. But even Granny Weatherwax, the most highly regarded leader they didn’t have, found out the hard way that meddling in royal politics is more difficult than Shakespeare would have you believe. Wyrd Sisters is the sixth novel in Terry Prachet’s discworld series. This funny fantasy series comes from a man who says writing is the most fun anyone can have by themselves. He means it.
