Publisher's Summary

Right before the wise old wizard Drum Billet died, he passed on his magical staff of power to the newborn eighth son of an eighth son. Unfortunately, Drum Billet never bothered to check the gender of the newborn baby, and it turns out to be a girl. Now his chauvinistic colleagues are forced to deal with a young girl who has all the qualifications to join their all-male profession. Terry Pratchett's third Discworld novel, Equal Rites, asks many provocative questions about magic, where it goes, where it comes from, and why. Browse more novels of Discworld.

Lots of fun

Granny Weatherwax is one of my all-time favorite characters in any book. Terry Pratchett has the rare and wonderful gift for creating strong female characters who aren't simply men in dresses.

This book was a fun story, and the narrator did a good job capturing the characters. There were some indistinct spots, though few and far between.

It was okay.

I prefer Nigel Planer and Stephen Briggs. Imrie is a bit whispery for my taste. I thought it was appropriate to have a female read the story, but it definitely fell flat. Her Librarian was extremely awkward. The story itself is alright. I enjoy Granny Weatherwax but the witches are probably my least favorite of the discworld characters. That being said, shes definitely still an entertaining and hilarious character. Worth a read, not a listen.

Equal Rites

3rd book in the Discworld saga. The first three books are hard work in my opinion until you come to Morrt. Once you have read that one, you start to develop a love for the characters.

On first read of the first three Discworld books, I found them clunky and had several specifics to that saga that were awkward as literary ideas. I returned and read these first three books and in reference to this one in particular and thoroughly enjoyed them.

Well read and well wrote if clunky and awkward on first read.
