Witches Abroad (Discworld)
Witches Abroad - Terry Pratchett,Nigel Planer
Witches Abroad - Terry Pratchett

An excellent riff on fairy tales.  I'm not actually sure what to say about it beyond that.  If you've read any of the discworld books, this one won't disappoint you.  

 

I listened to the audiobook, and Nigel Planer did an excellent job, though I disliked his Magrat and Ella choices; his voices for them both made them sound dull and stupid. On the other hand, I've also listened to other Pratchett books narrated by Celia Imrie and I really disliked her Granny Weatherwax voice; Planer gets Granny just right - she's the crone without hurting your ear drums. 

 

The plays on words are always my favorite part of Pratchett books and Witches Abroad did not disappoint (Emberella = Cinderella).  I also loved the we finally saw Granny's magic in a very decisive show; I hope it won't be the only time we see it.

I'm not sure which is the more dangerous; Greebo as a cat, or Greebo in human form.

 

I love the way Pratchett turns fairy tales on their heads, and has a couple of hilarious digs at Lord of the Rings while he's at it.

Under the table, Greebo sat and washed himself. Occasionally he burped.

 

Vampires have risen from the dead, the grave and the crypt, but have never managed it from the cat.

 

Important life lesson #1 - You don't mess with Greebo.

I've had this on hold from my library since the bingo game was announced. It has finally become available to me.

Witches Abroad ★★★★☆

More fun with Granny Weatherwax & friends as they travel to foreign parts to stop a fairy godmother from making people have happily ever afters, whether it’s wanted or not. Loved it.
