Pratchett's Women is a really enjoyable essay collection on the women in several of Terry Pratchett's Discworld novels. I love the Discworld to bits, and Tansy's honest, soul-searching, and massively enthusiastic take on how female characters are portrayed in the Discworld universe is an excellent read. She's a huge fan of the novels, too, but she doesn't hesitate to point out the places where Pratchett's handling of female characters doesn't work. Tansy also explores how her responses to the novels have changed over time as her ideas about feminism have developed. This personal dimension to the essays adds interest and encourages the reader to have the same (very important!) kinds of conversations with herself. Recommended reading for any Discworld fan.
