Witches Abroad

This is a review of “Witches Abroad” by Terry Pratchett. It is the 12th novel in The Discworld Series and the third novel in the Witches Story Arc. Character arc-wise it follows on from “Wyrd Sisters“.

One of the older witches of the Ramtops had died. Desiderata is not your everyday run-of-the-mill witch either. She was something special. She was a Fairy Godmother.

She’s left Magrat her most prized possession and a note with instructions. It seems she’s chosen her successor, and left her a task.

But neither Granny Weatherwax nor Nanny Ogg are going to let Magrat go off alone. She’s going abroad for goodness sakes. And she doesn’t even know how to use the wand…

So many pumpkins!

And perhaps Granny Weatherwax might know something the others don’t…

So far, this has been my favourite novel in the witches story arc.

It is a wonderfully witty novel about knowing yourself (and the direction you’re headed), travel and friendship. It’s also about stories and how it’s not really in anyone’s best interest to force things to happen a specific way.

Things will unfold as they must.
