Witches Abroad
Witches Abroad: (Discworld Novel 12) | Terry Pratchett
110 posts | 143 read | 1 reading | 63 to read
'Things have to come to an end, see. That's how it works when you turn the world into stories. You should never have done that. You shouldn't treat people like they was characters, like they was things. But if you do, then you've got to know where the story ends.'It seemed an easy job... After all, how difficult could it be to make sure that a servant girl doesn't marry a prince? Quite hard, actually, even for the witches Granny Weatherwax, Nanny Ogg and Magrat Garlick. That's the problem with real life it tends to get in the way of a good story, and a good story is hard to resist. Servant girls have to marry the prince. That's what life is all about. You can't fight a Happy Ending, especially when it comes with glass slippers and a Fairy Godmother who has made Destiny an offer it can't refuse.At least - up until now...

“Listen, happy endings is fine if they turn out happy,” said Granny, glaring at the sky. “But you can‘t make ‘em for other people. Like the only way you could make a happy marriage is by cuttin‘ their heads off as soon as they say ‘I do‘, yes? You can‘t make happiness…”

A funny story of the Witches in this Discworld book. Liked this one a lot! Great lines, funny paragraphs. Laughed a lot while reading.

For me, Sir Terry is at his best when he writes stories about stories, and here he has great fun riffing on fairy tales and ‘happy ever afters‘. As always, there‘s lots of characteristic Pratchett humour overlaying more serious questions - this time about autonomy and the right to make our own choices and define for ourselves what ‘happy ever after‘ means. #bookspinbingo @TheAromaofBooks

“Stories, great flapping ribbons of shaped space-time, have been blowing and uncoiling around the universe since the beginning of time. And they have evolved. The weakest have died and the strongest have survived and they have grown fat on the retelling . . . stories, twisting and blowing through the darkness. And their very existence overlays a faint but insistent pattern on the chaos that is history.” #twist #QuotsyNov20

Okay here are my choices #LMPBC #Round9

I‘ll tag them below too. I added my only Pratchett because everyone so far had 1 😂

3 should be fluffy/light. Not sure about the Pratchett. I also thought about recommending No Country for Old Gnomes (it‘s compared to Pratchett and it‘s funny), but it‘s the 2nd book and I don‘t know if you should read in order.

Laughterhp This a retelling of Persuasion (which I‘ve never read) 2y
Laughterhp This is a Sleeping Beauty retelling 2y
Laughterhp I feel like this one is obvious what it‘s about 😂 2y
See All 15 Comments
Laughterhp Not pictured and I‘m planning to read for June anyway 😂 2y
TheAromaofBooks I'm totally behind any of these!! I've read Spindle's End many times because I love it so hard, so I'm completely fine with reading it with the group!! The others also look fun, but I have a thing about reading books in order, so if you go with the Gnomes, I'll probably read the first book first 😂 2y
Laughterhp @TheAromaofBooks I was going to ask if Spindle‘s End was good, but it must be if you‘ve read it a lot! 😂. Yeah that‘s why Gnomes was an unofficial recommendation. I know a lot of people like to read in order. 2y
TheAromaofBooks Spindle's End is a book that not everyone would necessarily like - McKinley is a bit rambly in that one, with loads of parenthetical asides (if you don't like parentheses, do NOT read this book haha) and such, but I still love it. I bought a copy on vacation back in 2003 and have taken it with me on vacation almost every year since for a reread! 2y
Sace I could have sworn I already reasoned to this! I'm cool with any of them, but I wouldn't want to read anything out of order. 2y
Laughterhp @Sace haha no worries. That‘s totally fine not wanting to read anything out of order. I figured you all would respond that way. It‘ll probably be between Ugly Stepsister, Witches Abroad or the Jane Austen one. Just waiting to hear from @Chrissyreadit 2y
Chrissyreadit @Sace I thought I responded to it too!!! My short term memory stinks. @TheAromaofBooks I love McKinley and have Spindles End but read it when my babies were babies (2 babies in 2 years) and call those times my dark ages- I can‘t remember anything including the books I read. 2y
Chrissyreadit My first choice is Jane Austen, then either of the other two. 2y
Laughterhp @Chrissyreadit @TheAromaofBooks @Sace Okay, based on everyone‘s comments, I‘m going to pick Jane Austen in Scarsdale for my choice. 2y
TheAromaofBooks Woohoo!! 2y
Sace Woot! 2y

I have a trick with Discworld books (since I have so many that I still haven't read, and they don't have chapters) where I'll sticky-tab every ~35 pages where there's a paragraph break. Then when I get to that part, I'll move the tab to the "chapter break" in the next book. So when one book is finished, the next is ready to go!

When you‘re reading your way through the Histories of Middle Earth with the #YearOfTolkien #LOTRHistory group and your other read for #PratchettPosse #OokBOokClub throws in a gollum reference.

Small book world! #BookSynchronicity

And honestly, the witches are smart.😉😂

Daisey This is a great reference! They seem to be everywhere lately. I even stumbled across one in my current YA read today. (edited) 3y

JazzFeathers Fantastic! I need to read more Pratchett. I'm intrigued by the Night Watch series. I read the first book and l liked it (even in ltalian, though l think Pratchett needs to be read in the original form). But l hear the Witches are particularly outstanding. 3y

Riveted_Reader_Melissa @JazzFeathers I started with an offshoot of the witches.... Tiffany Aching, which is a YA Pratchett and feel in love there, so the witches have always been my favorite. 3y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @Daisey I think because we are steeped in Tolkien at the moment, we are noticing them even more often. 3y
Daisey @Riveted_Reader_Melissa You may have a point there. I do think I‘ve become more attuned with more reading, but I also think I‘ve been lucky in a good selection of books currently. Another one today in 3y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @Daisey That one‘s on my list to read yet too, I was hoping to read it with the group, but at the rate I‘m going it won‘t happen until next year. Oh well, so many books, not enough time!🤷‍♀️ 3y

Soubhiville Good morning Pratchett fans! I‘ve read this one twice in the last 3 years. The first time I‘d just gotten it as a gift, and it fell a little flat for me. The second it clicked better and I loved it and laughed a ton, maybe because I‘ve been rereading the whole series so the other witch books were a bit fresher. 3y
See All 15 Comments
Soubhiville My favorite part of this one is Greebo‘s alternate personality! I just love that cat! 3y
julesG @Soubhiville Greebo's alternate personality is MEOoooowwwe! 😁 3y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @Soubhiville @julesG I just finished last night, running behind as usual. I also loved Greebo‘s part, and I quite enjoyed watching the witches fracture all our favorite fairy tales in their journey as they poke fun at the whole thing. For instance why would chopping your way through some briars and kissing a sleeping girl make anyone good husband material. 🤔 3y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa Plus I thought Nanny was quite hilarious in this one...her contemplations about, now if we could reverse this and have the man at night and frog in the daytime...that‘d be more workable. So much less fuss and mess. 🤣 3y
julesG @Riveted_Reader_Melissa I also thought Nanny was much stronger in this one. And, since I haven't read all Witches books yet, I'm still hoping the Hedgehog song's lyrics will be on one of the other books. 3y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @julesG My edition has a blurb by the author in the beginning saying he has received a lot of unsolicited verses for the song from readers.🤣 3y
julesG @Riveted_Reader_Melissa 😂😂 I'll Google 3y
Soubhiville @Riveted_Reader_Melissa @julesG you can find some videos of the song on YouTube as well! 3y
khooliha Just finished this right before dinner, snuffling quietly over them going to see the elephant. Sometimes on this reread I find myself wishing that some characters got more space (hi Magrat!), but the hits in this book basically don't stop coming. 3y
khooliha Buuuuut maybe don't stop the oppressed people of a city end the upper class with the concept of a swamp??? Let the idea of alligators chomp some richey riches. 3y
khooliha Also, this is one of my Josh Kirby illustrated editions (don't love it), and I guess he thought parrots live in New Orleans? 3y
julesG @khooliha Yeah, the parrot doesn't really make sense. I've been wondering about it too. 😁 3y

There is nothing quite like roadtripping with the Discworld witches! They grab their brooms and head off for some alternate fairy godmothering (to STOP a gal marrying a prince). As expected, the witches are awkward tourists disrespecting foreign foods & massacring languages. Along the way they encounter a suspicious number of stories and ‘rural legends‘ being acted out. A very satisfying story, with some Granny Weatherwax backstory revealed.

#JulesGsMaking Blueberry jam. After having blueberry pancakes for breakfast there were enough berries left for a jar of jam. Since I'm not a waster, I made jam.

Now, I'm making a wasp repellent balm: macadamia nut oil, beeswax, lavender and peppermint essential oils.

I love #audiobooks.

Book 61 of the year finished July 30, audio

Magrat is bequeathed a magic wand and is now a Fairy Godmother. She sets off to foreign lands with Granny and Nanny to stop the girl from marrying the prince.

I like the witches, particularly Nanny, but these aren't my favorite stories. I figure with over 30 books I'm allowed to not like some as much as the others. Still a solid Pick that I would reccomended others to read.

Dear Overdrive users who read on your phones,

Help! Is there a simple way to ‘go back‘ to the previous page you were looking at? For e.g., if you follow a footnote, how do you get back?

I can fudge it if I remember to add a bookmark before I click the link, but the chances of remembering every time are pretty remote...

Thanks in advance!

Moray_Reads Pressing the footnote number should take you back but it can be really fiddly to hit it just right. It's a real problem when reading Discworld! 3y

“You can‘t go around building a better world for people. Only people can build a better world for people. Otherwise it‘s just a cage.”

Somehow Sir Terry synthesizes folk tales, voodoo, European travel, fairy godmothers, and New Orleans into this tale of the witches trying to help Emberella not attend a ball, achieving both madcap hilarity and a thoughtful meditation on free will and the power of stories.

Just wow. #DiscRead

“Granny disapproved of magic for domestic purposes, but she was annoyed. She also wanted her tea. She threw a couple of logs into the fireplace and glared at them until they burst into flame out of sheer embarrassment.”

“Excuse me," said Granny, empowering the words with much the same undertones as are carried by words like ‘Charge!‘ and ‘Kill!‘, "Excuse me, but does this pointy hat I‘m wearing mean anything to you?”

#Grouch #QuotsyFeb19

I thought of Marilla Cuthbert or neighbour to Green Gables, Mr. Harrison; I considered Eddings's Beldin or Donaldson's Thomas Covenant and several others but I finally decided #GrannyWeatherwax was my favourite grouch... and then, of course, couldn't choose just one quote! 4y
