Terry Pratchett Ë 9 review Witches Abroad review ↠ 109 Ewolf and falling house well this is a fairy tale after all The trouble really begins once these reluctant foster godmothers arrive in Genua and must outwit their power hungry counterpart who'll stop at nothing to achieve a proper happy ending even if it means destroying a kingdom. This is the third book in the Witches subseries of Discworld The last time I enjoyed a Discworld book this much was when I read the second Witches book Wyrd Sisters I m not sure if I m far enough into Discworld to proclaim my favorite subseries yet but Witches is the top contender As with the previous Witches book this story focuses primarily on the characters of Granny Weatherwax Nanny Ogg and Magrat Through a series of events the three are led to journey to a distant country to deal with an evil fairy godmother who among other things is trying to make a girl marry a prince of uestionable origin There are a lot of references to familiar fairy tales but they re usually twisted around in an amusing way I thought the overall plot in this book was far coherent than that of most of the other Discworld booksAlthough Magrat can be annoying sometimes Granny Weatherwax and Nanny Ogg are just hilarious and some of their reactions as they traveled through foreign parts made me laugh One minor complaint I have is that in Wyrd Sisters the same characters referred to other places as forn parts They seem to have inexplicably learned how to pronounce foreign since then and for some reason I missed the forn parts Happily there s another Witches book only two books away on my Discworld list so I ll get the chance to revisit this subseries in the near future

Terry Pratchett Ë 9 review Witches Abroad review ↠ 109 Be careful what you wish forOnce upon a time there was a fairy godmother named Desiderata who had a good heart a wise head and poor planning skills which unforunately left the Princess Emberella in the care of her other not uite so good and wise godmother when DEATH came for Desid. Watch the abyss behind the seemingly harmonic fairy tales while Magrat Garlick starts earning her reputation as one of the tightest young witches beside Tiffany AchingPratchett uses postmodernismhttpsenwikipediaorgwikiPostmodto deconstruct satirize and exaggerate many of the stereotypical and unrealistic tropes of legends mythology economics fairytales fantasy political science and humanities Subverting the opportunism and uniformity of moral and ethical codexes witches night watches and wizards are sawing on the wrong awful and dishonest foundations of Western culture No matter what close to each system has some inherent self destruct or madness buttons and Pratchett Monty Python and some lesser known others laid the cornerstone for groundbreaking extremely dark new worksThe continuation of this process towards the morbid can be seen in the amazing adult animation series of the 21st century while in contrast Pratchett is mainly satirizing and using the formula of changed motivations and personalities to give both laughter and insightsBack to the show The witches aren t as directly violent as other characters they use the soft magic of headologie and altruism to help avoiding disasters or with mundane everyday problems I would subjectively guess that Pratchett liked his female characters and women in general the most because he puts most positive progressive ideas in their minds while all other male characters stay pretty dull egoistic or good oldfashioned different stages of insanityGranny Weatherwax and Nanny Ogg are one of the best friend pairings in the Discworld a symbiotic relationship also completely differing from the male friendships later becoming less important when Tiffany Aching enters the stage But while the males are primarily fighting alphaing posing and incompetencing around Granny and Nanny don t just care for everyone else but have a long going emancipated womanceA bit of laughing about tourism is in there too and the all time favorite of marriage politics can never be bad Oh and of course zombiesTropes show how literature is conceptualized and created and which mixture of elements makes works and genres uniue one is added to all Pratchettian reviews The idea of the dissected motifs rocks highlighting the main real world inspirational elements of fiction and satire is something usually done with so called higher literature but a much interesting field in readable literature as it offers the joy of reading subtle criticism and feeling smart all together
