9780062225733: Wyrd Sisters (Discworld Novels)

A TALE FOR ALL SEASONS: COMEDY, TRAGEDY, RICHES, POVERTY, MAGIC, LOVE, HATE, REDEMPTION, DAMNATION AND MUCH MUCH MORE or, otherwise known as WYRD SISTERS

Three witches on a stormy heath, a king cruelly murdered, a usurper on the throne, rivers of blood, lots of trees - is this beginning to sound familiar? Add to that a young prince adrift from his rightful inheritance, a travelling band of thespians, a fool who speaks the truth, and some jokes - and a play within a screenplay, and you have the essence of Shakespeare without having to read thirty-seven plays. In fact you have the unexpurgated screenplay of one of Terry Pratchett's funniest and most telling Discworld stories.

Wyrd Sisters: The Illustrated Edition is the perfect accompaniment to the acclaimed Channel Four ; Cosgrove Hall series of Terry Pratchett's bestselling novel.

Product Description:

Things like crowns had a troublesome effect on clever folks; it was best to leave all the reigning to the kind of people whose eyebrows met in the middle.

Three witches gathered on a lonely heath. A king cruelly murdered, his throne usurped by his ambitious cousin. A child heir and the crown of the kingdom, both missing. The omens are not auspicious for the new incumbent, for whom ascending this tainted throne is a more complicated affair than you might imagine, particularly when the blood on your hands just won't wash off and you're facing a future with knives in it...

Review:

"'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 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 Pratchetts work'" ( Guardian)

Book Description HarperTorch, United States, 2013. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 188 x 107 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Terry Pratchett s fantasy classic Wyrd Sisters, a novel in the Discworld series, is the story of Granny Weatherwax, the most highly regarded non-leader a coven of non-social witches could ever have. Generally, these loners don t get involved in anything, mush less royal intrigue. but then there are those times they can t help it. As Granny Weatherwax is about to discover, though, it s a lot harder to stir up trouble in the castle than some theatrical types would have you think. Even when you ve got a few unexpected spells up your sleeve. Granny Weatherwax teams with two other witches -- Nanny Ogg and Margat Garlick - as an unlikely alliance to save a prince and restore him to the throne of Lancre, in a tale that borrows -- or is it parodies -- some of William Shakespeare s best-loved works.
