Witches Abroad (Discworld, #12; Witches #3) Read Online Free - Be careful what you wish for...
Once 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 quite so good and wise) godmother when DEATH came for Desiderata. So now it's up to Magrat Garlick, Granny Weatherwax, and Nanny Ogg to hop on broomsticks and make for far-distant Genua to ensure the servant girl doesn't marry the Prince.
But the road to Genua is bumpy, and along the way the trio of witches encounters the occasional vampire, werewolf, 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 made me think of the 1988 John Landis film starring Eddie Murphy Coming to America. Not that either story are very much similar at all, except that the most charismatic part of each was the mesmerizing interaction between the characters. Just as Eddie Murphy and Arsenio Hall (who e...

Best in Witches series so far. I won't bother with review instead here are some of my favorite quotes
People think that stories are shaped by people. In fact, it's the other way around
People whose wishes get granted often don't turn out to be very nice people.
Wisdom is one of the few things that l...

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 th...

‘We’re her godmothers,’ said Granny.
‘That’s right,’ said Nanny Ogg.
‘We’ve got a wand, too,’ said Magrat.
‘But you hate godmothers, Mistress Weatherwax,’ said Mrs Gogol.
‘We’re the other kind,’ said Granny. ‘We’re the kind that gives people what they know they really need, not what we think they oug...

Oh I forgot how much fun this book was. Traveling with the witches had me laughing nonstop while thinking about how travelers behave and appear to others. And all the things about stories and their desire to happen and end. So good!

Witches Abroad is the 12th Discworld novel by Sir Terry Pratchett. The thing about Discworld is that you don't necessarily have to read his books in order. They all take place in the same world, and all the characters pop up and make cameos in each other's stories, but it doesn't really matter. B...

Carrying on with this series and with my healthy exercises. I love reading this sub-series because I can relate so well with Granny Weatherwax and Nanny Ogg. This time it seems that Pratchett was spoofing a number of fairy tales. Might not take me long to finish this book.
Day 13: Back to the exce...

The Complete Discworld Reread
First things first, I must say my reading comprehension has gone up by quite a lot since I started reviewing all the books I read. For instance I know I have read ‘Witches Abroad’ a half dozen times in my life and never once realized that the ‘Cinderella’ of the story...
