Terry Pratchett’s fantasy classic Wyrd Sisters, a novel in the Discworld series, is the story of Granny Weatherwax, the most highly regarded non-leader a coven of non-social witches could ever have.Generally, these loners don't get involved in anything, mush less royal intrigue. but then there are those times they can't help it. As Granny Weatherwax is about to discover, though, it's a lot harder to stir up trouble in the castle than some theatrical types would have you think.

Celia Imrie doing Granny, Nanny, and Magret. What more do you want?The great thing about this audio book is that you notice things that you do not when you read it.
From the reviews I've read on this book, I should have enjoyed it a lot more than I did. I am disappointed in my effort on this book, perhaps a re-read someday. I just could not get into this book the way I have other Pratchett novels.
