really liked it


Another very funny Discworld novel. This time the witches have a visit from some ultra modern vampires who are doing their utmost to avoid all the cloches one associates with vampires (none of this leaving crosses and stakes lying round the castle that can be used against you by some scantily clad young women or wearing dinner jackets at any other time than at dinner!). They come to Lancre invited as guests to the kings wedding and decide to stay and take over using mind control to subdue everyone….everyone apart from the witches that is who in the words of granny weatherwax ‘ cant be having with it’!

I love a Discwold novel when I’m feeling fed up and in need of a good chuckle. It made me laugh out loud and I bored my boyfriend silly by reading out loud particularly funny extracts…or so I
thought!

Terry does get better with each novel and I am really enjoying rereading all his novels.
