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

The first Terry Pratchett book I ever read - and I was hooked!

A hilarious story of a journey by three witches who travel from their small local town across the planet Discworld. Pratchett writes humour on every page of this book. The witches are as funny as they are rude. They often shock the unsuspecting characters in the regions of Discworld the witches chose to visit. Pratchett paints a beautiful and imaginative make believe world with his words. The Witches Trilogy is fun, funny and unforgettable.

I FINALLY FINISHED THAT ONE... after nearly a year!

(I will not buy books like that again, i actually do prefer single books instead of compilations like these)

If i were able to give more than 5 stars, i actually would! I love Terry Pratchett's Discworld to pieces and I very much appreciate The Witches! All 3 of them have their qualities and failings, but stay relatable and likeable throughout.
I do not have a favorite between the 3 titles, only short annotations - Equal Rites was wonderful! A fe

Everyone needs a few witches in their life. These are the three where Granny, Nanny and Magrat really start to get into their stride. Also “but they went the long way, and saw the elephants” is one of my favourite last lines ever.

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.

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.

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.
