This blew me away when I first read it, too many years ago, and rereading it was a delight. Pratchett is one of the best feminist writers I've come across, and Lords and Ladies (all his Witches books, really, but this one especially) feels like a lesson in how to write strong female characters. Not one but three female protagonists, each with different preoccupations, each shining in their own way.

Pratchett is always funny, but he can also be deeply moving, and this, for me, is one of his most moving books. Brilliance.
