Terry's Pratchett's profoundly irreverent novels are consistent number one bestsellers in England, where they have catapulted him into the highest echelons of parody next to Mark Twain, Kurt Vonnegut, Douglas Adams, and Carl Hiaasen. Meet Granny Weatherwx, 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.

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.
