Lords and Ladies - Terry Pratchett

Lords and Ladies - Terry Pratchett

July 9 2007

ahhh.  That's a good un.


July 15 2014

What we have here is: A Midsummer Night's Dream, an impending apocalypse (by elves), a young, rather soppy, witch's efforts to find a place for herself as a Queen of Lancre, the courting of Nanny Ogg, and a romantic backstory for Granny Weatherwax. And jokes.

Magrat's a bit hard to love. The elder witches don't give her an easy time, and don't have much respect for her methodology. Nor does she get more respect as the soon-to-be-queen, although she does have to wear more unpleasant clothes, and she's limited to doing tapestry, for the most part. She's as practical as Susan, but utterly lacking in Susan's confidence. Ah, well, she finds some iron to stiffen her spine.

And Greebo makes an appearance.
