Wyrd Sisters by Terry Pratchett

Wyrd Sisters (Discworld, #6)

Wyrd Sisters is yet another Terry Pratchett Discworld novel. I've been devouring them like candy. This is the second book in the witches series and the first hooking the intrepid Granny Weatherwax with two other witches. In this case the two being Nanny Ogg and Magrat Garlick.

Equal Rites gave had good character development for Granny, but it's a ton of fun seeing her react to the other witches. Also fleshes out the witch culture and shows that not all witches are like Granny (if any at all). This books theme revolves are Shakespeareean tales, specifically Macbeth, and plays with them to great effect.

Perhaps not my favorite Discworld novel, but very high on the list.
