Destiny is important, see, but people go wrong when they think it controls them. It’s the other way around. Terry Pratchett’s vividly imaginative story takes you on a journey with hunchbacked monarchs, lost crowns, disguised heirs, refuelling broomsticks, and frightening thunderstorms, as the three sisters battle the odds to restore the rightful king to the throne. Imaginative, witty and consistent.

Wyrd Sisters is the sixth novel in the Discworld Sequence - The funniest fantasy series ever. This whole book seems to be about the power of words, only masquerading as satire, in the way Terry cleverly weaves it in and out of dialogue. The mere idea of the play being remembered more than the actual truth is constantly manifested, together with obscure nods to Shakespeare.

Terry Pratchett is the master of a fantasy sub-genre that probably belongs to him alone. Most of them are clever, witty, and rapid-fire novels. The Discworld novels fall into different categories: Tiffany Aching, Rincewind, the three witches, Sam Vines and the guards, and Death. This book is a novel of the three witches. Each book focuses on one of them, although they cross over and pop up in each others' books all the time. It is best if you start from the beginning of a grouping and work your way through, otherwise you'll miss a lot of inside jokes, references, etc. There are charts on the internet that will show you the groupings. Having said that, I read Wee Free Men first, and it made me a fan. You can trust Terry Pratchett to not be too linear and to not be very predictable. Terry Pratchett does a wonderful job of maintaining the integrity of his absurd world and his characters while keeping everything fresh and creative. The humor is wrapped around serious themes. The characters have fantasy aspects, but they illustrate many universal truths of human nature. I cannot read too many of them in a row, but when I need something different, a Discworld novel is the perfect metaphorical palate refresher. This story begins with the assignation of a king and the abduction of his infant son. Assassins are following the coach with the baby when they come upon a meeting of witches Nanny Ogg, Granny Weatherwax, and Magrat. They take custody of the baby and hide him and the crown with a traveling troupe of thespians. The tale is full of ghosts, amusing theater references, wicked ambitious royals and, of course, the witches who are reliably entertaining. Like all the Discworld books, the tone is satirical and clever. This book was not my favorite of the Discworld novels and it did not make me laugh aloud as frequently as Wee Free Men. These books do not contain any scenes, language, or images that would rate even a PG-13 rating at the movies. If a reader does not have sufficient maturity, much of the book will be wasted, because you won’t get the jokes or understand the satire. It should be impossible to write such pure nonsense that ends up making great sense.

This is the first real book about the witches. Granny Weatherwax appears in Equal Rites but now she has company in the form of Nanny Ogg and Magrat. This might just be the most dysfunctional coven ever. Like many of Pratchett's early books this takes a few well earned shots at an institution. In this case royalty, ghosts, and most especially MacBeth. Shakespeare had it coming and this wry interpretation of the Scottish play is perfect. Pratchett's stylistic ploys of having many footnotes and no chapters should be familiar to all Discworld readers and hopefulluy aren't a surprise. The style has all the manic energy of the early books.
The plot asks the question, "What happens when a country gets a king who doesn't love it?". Well with the help of Granny and Co you'll get to find out. In many ways this is an exploration of the Nanny and Granny axis that featured in later books and shows some of Granny's power and her limitations. If you love the witches this is where it really begins. MacBeth didn't desreve the reputation that Shakespeare gave him and this won't help much either but you'll laugh all the way to the end.

Can't get enough of Discworld. Can't get enough of Pratchett. Can't get enough of witches, Granny Weatherwax in particular. If I ever get turned into a witch, this is who I want to be. I mean, how in the blazing blazes can a guy write three female characters, witches, no less, so convincingly? And not just any witches, but three very distinct women with their owns oomphs and aamphs and the ball of wax? WYRD SISTERS is satire at its best, with a clever concoction of everything fantasy and non-fantasy you can imagine, from witches (of course), to demons, to ghosts, to fools, to dukes, to kingly murders, to Death (again), to theater, to plays, to dwarf the writer, to... oh, I almost forgot, a storm that has been practicing its craft in the fields and finally decided to test it at the end of the book. And the kingdom. And the duchess. And everything. Anyway.

King Verence is stabbed by his cousin, and his baby boy, the prince, is being rescued by the aforementioned witches, together with the crown, and given over to the troupe of actors. Lovely place to store the crown, of course. The witches think they are done, but alas, the kingdom itself gets very angry at the whole affair, at how the new king treats it, and they must interfere, employing spells and time turning and flying theatrically on their brooms and in general trying to understand what is this thing, theater, and how come actors play plays, and just why would people do such a thing, and how silly it is, and how those silly words seems to have power over people. That's the interesting bit. This whole book seems to be about the power of words, only masquerading as satire, in the way Terry cleverly weaves it in and out of dialogue. The mere idea of the play being remembered more than the actual truth is constantly manifested, together with obscure nods to Shakespeare.

I enjoyed every bit of it, and now I have gotten to reading PYRAMIDS, and then GUARDS! GUARDS!, which many swear is their favorite Discworld book of them all. We shall see. I'm off to reading.
