Terry Pratchett’s fantasy classic Wyrd Sisters, a novel in the Discworld series, is the story of Granny Weatherwax, the most highly regarded non-leader a coven of non-social witches could ever have.
Generally, these loners don't get involved in anything, mush less royal intrigue. but then there are those times they can't help it. As Granny Weatherwax is about to discover, though, it's a lot harder to stir up trouble in the castle than some theatrical types would have you think. Even when you've got a few unexpected spells up your sleeve.
Granny Weatherwax teams with two other witches — Nanny Ogg and Margat Garlick - as an unlikely alliance to save a prince and restore him to the throne of Lancre, in a tale that borrows — or is it parodies — some of William Shakespeare's best-loved works.

Found this in the "bargain bin" here a few weeks ago. I do a lot of waiting in my job and I use books on my iPad to pass the time. I also have a hard time paying 12 bucks for something that doesn't include paper that can be passed along when I'm done. Anyway I always look for interesting books that may be in genres that I might normally pass over for a full priced book. This is one of those books, quirky, wyrd and very enjoyable.
I can't believe that with 5 stars from 24 readers no one has written a review.
This was a fun book with interesting characters. Tolstoy it ain't but who wants to read Tolstoy during your lunch hour! I look forward to other books from this author.
