Equal Rites

Equal Rites  - Terry Pratchett December 10, 2009

The first female wizard is exceptional, of course. It was never meant to be. Hahahahahahaha.

Veronica's been feeling a little under the weather this week, and when that is the case, she likes me to read aloud. And she couldn't locate the book we had been reading, so she decided on Pratchett instead. They both seem to like it so far.

The thing I really noticed this time is the way Pratchett makes up for his earlier omission of women at Unseen University by acknowledging how many it takes to keep the university running. And I continue to love how Granny Weatherwax supports herself in Anhk-Morpork and how she gets around the wizards. That Esk is nine doesn't surprise me: she's definitely a predecessor of Tiffany in the competence department. I'd really love to see Esk again, more grown-up, more used to being a first and only.
