Wyrd Sisters

My latest conquest! I said I was going to return to Lovecraft, but I needed something not-depressing to cheer me up. And Wyrd Sisters was a good choice – the combination of Magrat, Granny Weatherwax, and Nanny Ogg were very fun. I am envious of Pratchett’s abilities to write characters. Ultimately, though, I prefer the wizards – simply because their personalities are just so utterly ridiculous – but I look forward to reading another witches book. The bits about the theater and the land and kings and destiny in the book also made it a fun read (not to mention Death’s cameo as himself). Highly recommended. Next, I will really try to turn back to Lovecraft – or maybe C. A. Smith. Then after that, onto Men at Arms!
