Wyrd Sisters Discworld, 6 Witches 2 , Terry PratchettWyrd Sisters is Terry Pratchett s sixth Discworld novel, published in 1988, and re introduces Granny Weatherwax of Equal Rites Wyrd Sisters features three witches Granny Weatherwax Nanny Ogg, matriarch of a large tribe of Oggs and owner of the most evil cat in the world and Magrat Garlick, the junior witch, who firmly believes in occult jewelry, covens, and bubbling cauldrons, much to the annoyance of the other two King Verence I of Lancre is murdered by his cousin, Duke Felmet, after his ambitious wife persuades him to do so The King s crown and child are given by an escaping servant to the three witches The witches hand the child to a troupe of travelling actors, and hide the crown in the props box They Kingdoms Wobble, Crowns Topple And Knives Flash On The Magical Discworld As The Statutory Three Witches Meddle In Royal Politics The Wyrd Sisters Battle Against Frightful Odds To Put The Rightful King On The Throne At Least, That S What They Think I know the wizards have their fans, but for my money, NOBODY beats the Discworld witches.
Granny Weatherwax and her cronies try to dethrone an undesirable king in this adventure To do it they ll need to mess around with time and even consort with actors gasp Here the gals summon a demon, with predictably Pratchett like results The waters seethed a little, became very still and then, with a sudden movement and a little popping noise, mounded up into a head.
Well it said Who re you said Granny, bluntly.
The head revolved to face her.
My name is unpronounceable in your tongue, woman, it said I ll be the judge of that, warned Granny, and added, Don t you call me womanVery well My name is WxrtHltl jwlpklz, said the demon smugly Where were you when What a funny coincidence that my group started the Discworld buddy read at a time that meant this 6th installment would be read in October of all months How utterly appropriate.
And I have a confession to make I think I have a new favourite O.
OSo far, my absolute favourite was Mort and it still is fantastic, but this book is at least equally great There might not be deep messages about mortality, but the plot in Wyrd Sisters has a lot of other important topics to offer.
The story is that of how Granny Weatherwax, Nanny Ogg two old witches from the Discworld and Magrat a young witch have started meeting regularly the word coven shall not be uttered unless you want to get one of Granny s frowns and how they come across save a baby that When you break rules, break em good and hard Hm I must admit I wasn t as taken with this one as I was with Mort Terry Pratchett s insatiable wit was still there, but I just wasn t as invested in this story Three witches Granny Weatherwax, Nanny Ogg and young Magrat keep to their own little coven and rarely meddle in other affairs But when three knights appear carrying a baby off into the woods they become suspicious, and decide to get involvedI reckon responsible behaviour is something to get when you grow older Like varicose veins Turns out King Verence had been murdered in his own bed by his closest confidante Leaving behind an unknown heir So begins a tale full of magic, mummers and general madnessOnly in our dreams are we free The rest of the time we need wages I did enjoy it, but it just wasn t as funny as the characters of Death and Mort for me 3 stars.
There have been many great reviews on this old favorite of Sir Terry Pratchett s Discworld, and I won t wax eloquent, or otherwise , save to mention that it s full of Headology and Shakespeare references, between murdered kings and lost heirs and crowns and a mummer s farce and a showdown between Witches and the King, but even so, it s all fun as hell.
I think this is the first novel of the Discworld series that truly comes into its own or the first one that Pratchett uses as the template for all the ones to come Since this is a second read of the whole series, I found this one to be an awfully familiar and warming experience I still think that there are better Discworld novels out there, but not by very much All in all, it s a fun read I can t quite tell whether I like Ogg or WeatherwaxI never really connected with
First read 7th March, 2013 3 stars.
Second read 5th October, 2018 3 stars Wyrd Sisters is the second of the Witch mini series, in the ever popular Discworld series Equal Rites was the first and we were introduced to one of the greatest characters of all time Granny Weatherwax Wyrd Sisters brings twowitches and mentions of many others in to fray Nanny Ogg, Granny s best friend, and Magrat Garlick, a new wave witch who thinks jangling jewellery and occult symbols makes you a better witch Adding two new witches alongside Granny just emphasises how cantankerous, stubborn and bloody brilliant she is Even they can t deny that she s the best She is tolerated most of the time, but there s always an underlying current of total respect, in the same way you respect your grandparents because they lived through the war, even if they do still say does anyone want to get a Chinky The plot Shakespeare on the Discworld.
Truth be told, and all due respect to Rincewind, but I am partial to Sir Terry s Discworld Witches Granny Weatherwax returns from Equal Rites to star in another novel, this time in Pratchett s 1988 entry into the Discworld universe, Wyrd Sisters, his sixth Discworld novel and the second to feature Weatherwax and her sister witches.
Nanny Ogg gives her a run for her money though.
Pratchett provides Granny Weatherwax with a return visit and introduces two of her sisters, Nanny Ogg and Magrat Garlick as the second and third witches to stand in for the three witch coven triumvirate maiden, mother, and crone We also get to visit with Death a recurring character in many of the Discworld books and the Unseen University s orangutan Librarian.
Pratchett pays loving homage to The Bard with clear
But it was my fave Granny W, Nanny O and Magrat are all on top form, Granny Weatherwax is at her most imperious and is the epitome of witch headology In addition the 3 witches also practic
