My rating: ★★★★☆
Read From: 17 August 2013 - 19 August 2013
Another fun, enjoyable read in the Discworld universe. A dying wizard tries to give his staff to the newly born eighth son of an eighth son. But the new son turns out to be a new daughter and the Discworld is about to see its first female wizard. Or its first wizard witch. Or something. The result is, as you might expect, both humorous and poignant.
This book definitely has Pratchett’s trademark humor. I loved his pun on Granny Weatherwax’s observation that “good fences make good neighbors”.
