Tradition has it that wizarding ability is passed on to the 8th son of an 8th son when that child is born. So a dying wizard shows up at a remote town in the Ramtops to bestow his power on a newborn child of a blacksmith. But before they can explain that the baby is a girl, the wizard has passed along his power and his staff, and has died. But girls can't be wizards! Granny Weatherwax is called in to try to train little Eskarina to be a witch, but the magical power is too strong. So Granny takes her to Ankh-Morpork and attempts to get her into the Unseen University. When Eskarina is unable to demonstrate her ability, they just laugh her out of the building. She gets a job as a sweeper and uses her employment status to access classrooms and learn surreptitiously. Events in another plot arc come to a head, and it comes down to Esk and a stuttering boy prodigy to save the world. But it seems the more power they use, the more powerful their enemies become. How can they defeat the forces of evil and save the university? Read the book to find out.
There is a big turtle, it has four elephants on its back, who have a disc on their backs in turn, which is Discworld. There, in a the town called Bad Ass (it was not me who named it) a little girl is born who is destined for great things, for throwing burning stares at strangers), and for an adventure of a lifetime, namely, she goes seeking her fortune in the company of a fierce witch in disguise (in disguise because she is really very sweet and not fierce at all) Granny Weatherwax. They proceed changing wizarding rules, as women can't be wizards, it is known, it is in the lore, and it can not be questioned. Or else. Which actually what the book is about. About the "else". And carrots. Well, maybe also orangutans. Or librarian orangutans. Anyway, it's the third installment of the Discworld series (in order they were published) and I loved it, and I laughed every other sentence, to the point of belly aches. I am a transformed human being now, and if you read it, you will be transformed too.
fiance field. With Neil Gaiman he wrote Good Omens,perhaps the the first.the finest comic fantasy
Novel EVER! This book is part of his wildly imagined
Disc World universe, an ever-expanding world peopled
With characters both strange and yet endearing. This book
Like all the other Disc books can.be read on its own although
It is enriched by the knowing the Disc World context. The war between the sexes placed in the witches vs wizards play of DW will delight the new reader or the old Pratchett fan.
Rated it ONE star because of several reasons.
1. This audiobook is ABRIDGED. Should have figured out it out as it is 3 cds for a total of 3 hours.
2. There are NO Zoons. One of my favorite parts of the story... Zoons, raft trip, the liar.
3. There are several other instances of abridgement...
4. The reader, Tony Robinson, had two different volumes especially on the first cd. His narrative voice was strong and clear. His character voice dropped in volume 100 plus percent. I needed to turn the sound up to hear what characters said and then would get blasted out by the narrative. He does have a nice voice and I would listen to his readings again if he gets better production editing.
