Publisher Description

In Terry Pratchett's Wyrd Sisters, 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.

Meet 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, must less royal intrigue. But then there are those times they can't help it. As Granny Weatherwax is about to discover, 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.

The Discworld novels can be read in any order but Wyrd Sisters is the sixth Discworld book and the second in the Witches collection. The Witches collection includes:
Equal RitesWyrd SistersWitches AbroadLords and LadiesMaskeradeCarpe Jugulum

Fun Read

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.

We all need some witches looking out for our lives!

Well thank goodness for the witches! Read it to find out the complicated plots and very funny way their not so real world reflects our very real world every day. The relationships between the towns folks the supposed royals and the witches all thrive one way or another. Everyone has a role to play even the actors. Fun, funny at times, confusing at times, but witches get it right no matter what the consequences
