Beschreibung

'No one mixes the fantastical and mundane to better comic effect or offers sharper insights into the absurdities of modern endeavour' Daily Mail

The Discworld is very much like our own - if our own were to consist of a flat planet balanced on the back of four elephants which stand on the back of a giant turtle, that is . . .

Fairy godmothers develop a very deep understanding about human nature, which makes the good ones kind and the bad ones powerful.

Inheriting a fairy godmother role 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, whether they want to or not. You can't fight a Happy Ending, especially when it comes with glass slippers and a rival Fairy Godmother who has made Destiny an offer it can't refuse.

The Discworld novels can be read in any order but Witches Abroad is the third book in the Witches series.

"'A true orginal among contemporary writers'"

Terry Pratchett, geboren 1948, ist einer der erfolgreichsten Autoren der Gegenwart. Von seinen Scheibenwelt-Romanen wurden weltweit rund 45 Millionen Exemplare verkauft, seine Werke sind in 34 Sprachen übersetzt. Auf seinen Lesereisen füllt er spielend ganze Hallen, denn seine Fans können gar nicht genug von dem Mann mit dem hintersinnigen Humor bekommen. Umgeben von den modernsten Computern (und so durch ein Stück Schnur mit dem Rest der Welt verbunden) lebt Terry Pratchett mit seiner Frau Lyn in der englischen Grafschaft Wiltshire, wo er dieses Jahr seine eigenen Gewürzgurken anbaut.

'A true orginal among contemporary writers' The Times 'His jokes are the best thing since Wodehouse. His comic footnotes are still glorious' The Times 'Pratchett's writing is a constant delight. No-one mixes the fantastical and mundane to better comic effect or offers sharper insights into the absurdities of modern endeavour' Daily Mail

great content, two stars for the quality of the book (paper, font, etc)

Great book, one of the best by Terry Pratchett. However, I would not recommend getting this soft cover book edition. The resolution of the font is very low, it is this strange bold yet fuzzy font. In some pages, it gets better. but overall, it was annoying to read it in print. I recommend other soft-cover editions, or gettin... Great book, one of the best by Terry Pratchett.
