Equal Rites Summary

Equal Rites: (Discworld Novel 3) by Terry Pratchett

'Persistently amusing, good-hearted and shrewd' The Sunday Times

The Discworld is very much like our own - if our own were to consist of a flat planet balanced on the back of four elephants which stand on the back of a giant turtle, that is . . .

They say that a little knowledge is a dangerous thing, but it's not half so bad as a lot of ignorance.

The last thing the wizard Drum Billet did, before Death laid a bony hand on his shoulder, was to pass on his staff of power to the eighth son of an eighth son.

Unfortunately for his colleagues in the chauvinistic (not to say misogynistic) world of magic, he failed to check that the baby in question was a son.

Everybody knows that there's no such thing as a female wizard. But now it's gone and happened, there's nothing much anyone can do about it.

Let the battle of the sexes begin . . .

The Discworld novels can be read in any order but Equal Rites is the first book in the Witches series.

Pratchett keeps getting better and better...It's hard to think of any humorist writing in Britain today who can match him * Time Out *
