Unfortunately, the Lancre All-Comers Morris Team has gotten drunk on a fairy mound, and the elves have returned with the traditional traits of the magical realm of Fairie: evil, malice, murder, cruelty, and kidnapping.

Witches vs. Elves
Absolutely. This is Terry Pratchett at his best, funny and wise.
There are too many to choose from. I'd have to say Nanny Ogg in this one, because of her laid-back and unashamed attitude to life, sex and food.

It took me 3 sittings, but yes, I would love to have done it in one go.
This book is filled with great individuals. All 3 witches. The Librarian. The Arch Chancellor. The Dean and his dried frog pills. Ponder Stibbins and his theories of quantum magic. Casanunda, the dwarf 2nd greatest lover in the world. (We try harder,)
On top of this the story is exciting and compelling. There is so much packed into this book it's a wonder it doesn't explode.
