Having read quite a lot of Sir Terence's works, i'm convinced that the Witches Trilogy is by far the best of all the Discworld novels. Jokes and humour apart, the trilogy is one of the best specimen of Sir Terence's unique and humane philosophy and world view. And of course there's quite a bit of "headology" involved :-D

I think the witches are my favorite Discworld characters. Apart from Death of course, he is brilliant. It is hard to decide which one of the three novels in this Omnibus is my favorite, it is between Wyrd Sisters and Witches Abroad.

Witches Abroad:
The flow in this one was definitely an improvement upon Wyrd Sisters. There were so many awesome passages in this book, I can't even begin to name them all. Every single one about Greebo, for example.

The kind of humor that makes me want to cry, it is so good! the witches are lovable and despicable, sometimes both at the same time. Great fun!

Not sure which story I liked best, they were all pretty enjoyable: perhaps the second one.

Terry worked for many years as a journalist and press officer, writing in his spare time and publishing a number of novels, including his first Discworld novel,
