Wyrd Sisters by Terry Pratchett (A Review)

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....

My review:
A book full of Shakespeare inspired puns, this book is one of Pratchett's best. Its also a perfect start for any new Discworld readers of a literary persuasion, since it doesn't relie on knowledge of the previous books for its plot. What I particulary love about this story though, is how tackles ideas such as destiny and rule in a totally unserious way. Certainly a tale that can be taken on many levels and enjoyed starting from a range of viewpoints.
This book is part of my permenant collection.
