The sixth ''Discworld'' novel. The witches of Discworld, not the most joyful bunch, decide that they must get involved in the politics of the planet. Granny Weatherwax, their obvious choice as spokesperson, finds that life in royal politics is not as simple as it seems.
Witches are not by nature gregarious, and they certainly don't have leaders. Granny Weatherwax was the most highly-regarded of the leaders they didn't have. But even ''she'' found that meddling in royal politics was a lot more difficult than certain playwrights would have you believe... WYRD SISTERS IS THE SIXTH NOVEL IN THE DISCWORLD SEQUENCE -- THE FUNNIEST FANTASY SERIES EVER.
'Like Jonathan Swift, Pratchett uses his other world to hold up a distorting mirror to our own, and like Swift, he is a satirist of enormous talent' * The Times * 'One of the perennial joys of modern fiction' * Mail on Sunday * 'One of the pleasures of the book is the way in which literary classics float effortlessly through them in a way that would be pounced on as inter-textual in another author but is never allowed to become strident or alienating in Pratchett's work' * Guardian *
