Lords and Ladies
Lords and Ladies | Terry Pratchett
68 posts | 94 read | 24 to read
Although they may feature witches and wizards, vampires and dwarves, along with the occasional odd human, Terry Pratchett's bestselling Discworld novels are grounded firmly in the modern world. Taking humorous aim at all our foibles, each novel reveals our true character and nature.It's a dreamy midsummer's night in the Kingdom of Lancre. But music and romance aren't the only things filling the air. Magic and mischief are afoot, threatening to spoil the royal wedding of King Verence and his favorite witch, Magrat Garlick. Invaded by some Fairie Trash, soon it won't be only champagne that's flowing through the streets ...

RachelO Eek! Jules! I think I need to be taken off this list - sorry! It‘s been so good to try out some of the other series, but I‘m not getting through 1-a-month, so I‘m ending up reading in an utterly random order (not helped by Overdrive due dates 🤯)- think I‘ll attempt more Pratchett at a slower pace. If you see me commenting on 2-year-old posts, don‘t be surprised!! 5d
julesG @RachelO No problem! Wish I could lend you my ebooks or audiobooks. 5d
RachelO @julesG It‘s the one thing with e/audiobooks, isn‘t it? Was thinking the other day I‘d really like to post my kindle to someone... It‘s been a great way to expand my Pratchett reading though- will def read more! 5d

Lucy_Anywhere So I probably read this as a young teenager and completely missed a lot of the adult references 😂 5d

julesG @Lucy_Anywhere I felt the same. It's so good to reread the Discworld novels. BTW, I nearly spit my coffee across the table at Nanny Ogg checking under her bed for men, because she might be lucky. 😂😂😂 5d
DrexEdit This is definitely one of my top five #Discworld stories. I enjoyed reading this very much. I thought the witches gained layers of character here and Sir Pratchett did a fantastic job with these characters! 😊 👍 5d
TheSpineView @DrexEdit I agree with you. There was a lot more character development which I enjoyed. 5d
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @julesG That was hilarious! 5d
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @DrexEdit I love the witches! I first encountered them with Tiffany Aching, so it‘s so great to read and watch them develop into these great characters as those layers get so wonderful. 5d
Riveted_Reader_Melissa I really enjoyed this one, and loved Esme‘s development. And so much fun too. 5d

My personal favourites of the Discworld series have to be the City Watch books, but the Lancre Witches come a close second. Lords and Ladies twists conventions to make the elves the bad guys, the almost-queen the heroine, and the elderly witches the voice of reason in a fun tale. I'd forgotten how much I enjoyed reading Discworld! Now I just have to play catch-up with the #EpicBuddyRead of Pratchett's works!

What a great mix of a Midsummer‘s Night Dream, and some truly nasty elves...perfect for the season, both for Halloween and the season as my summer turns swiftly to fall. And as always, I love the witches, what Pratchett tells us about ourselves, and Esme‘s always important lessons to listen to yourself and not what anybody else, or a bunch of elves, try to make you think.😉

@Lucy_Anywhere the #TerryPratchett #EpicBuddyRead is a loose band of readers kept on track by @julesG. The group is reading the entire Pratchett oeuvre on a 6-year schedule (see image), but you can jump in or out where you want. We're at the end of year 2 just now. I'm reading along with the #discworld novels for now. Follow #OokBOokClub. I think this screenshot is from the beginning of 2019. There might be a more recent one if you scan the tag.

DrexEdit @Lucy_Anywhere don't let the long schedule put you off. You can join or skip whatever discussions you want. Generally we finish on the 7th of the month (Lords and Ladies will finish on 11/7) and discuss on the 8th. I hope you can join us! Even if only for a few books! 😀 2w
Lucy_Anywhere Thanks! This is an epic reread - I'm excited 😀 Looking forward to playing catch-up 2w
jillrhudy I‘ve already read about 25 of them. Nanny Ogg has a cookbook? 2w
DrexEdit @jillrhudy I just noticed that this morning too! Might be worth a look! 😊 2w

“‘This is damn good wine,‘ she said, picking up another bottle. ‘What did you say it's called?‘ She peered at the label. ‘Chateau Maison? Chat-eau . . . that's foreign for cat's water, you know, but that's only their way, I know it ain't real cat's water. Real cat's water is sharper.‘ She hammered the cork into the bottle with the end of her knife, then stuck her finger over the neck and gave it a vigorous shaking ‘to mix the goodness in.‘”

“You make us want what we can‘t have & what you give us is worth nothing & what you take is everything & all there is left for us is the cold hillside, & emptiness, & the laughter of the elves.”

The elves of Discworld are the most genuinely frightening villains in the series so far. The witches three find themselves in the fight of their lives when a midsummer night‘s play unleashes these cruel beautiful monsters on the eve of Magrat‘s wedding.

“After a few seconds a sense of pressure on her feet indicated that the cat Greebo had taken up his accustomed place at the end of the bed. Greebo always slept on Nanny‘s bed; the way he‘d affectionately try to claw your eyeballs out in the morning was as good as an alarm clock. But she always left a window open all night in case he wanted to go out and disembowel something, bless him.”

"The thaumic mathematics are complex, but boil down to the fact that all books, everywhere, affect all other books. This is obvious: books inspire other books written in the future, and cite books written in the past. But the General Theory of L-Space suggest that, in that case, the contents of books as yet unwritten can be deduced from books now in existence." ??
