Equal Rites


Third Discworld book in publication order, and the third that I've read - perhaps I should go back and read the first two sometime. This was also the first outside the City Watch books - and I loved it.

Granny Weatherwax ("I'm not a lady, I'm a witch") is just a great character, more than a match for her wizardly counterparts. Both she and the protagonist are strong female characters. We learn more about Discworld in this book than in the other two, each admittedly later in the series.

Read in preparation for reading Wyrd Sisters next month.
