Wyrd Sisters (Discworld #6, Witches #2)

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Personally upon finishing Wyrd Sisters, I felt conflicted about the sixth installment in Terry Pratchett’s Discworld series.  It wasn’t that the story was not good nor that the parodying of various fantasy tropes along with Shakespearean plays weren’t funny, but nothing seemed to click throughout the entire book.

The first third of the book felt slow paced before things really started going in the plot but it was a sign of things to come as the comedic situations were amusing but not laugh-out-loud funny like the previous five books.  While a lot of the characters were enjoyable, namely Disc’s dwarf bard Hwel, it was Margat Garlick that was off-putting because Pratchett didn’t seem to develop her (given she is one of the titular characters) and might have been a reason why the book didn’t click.

Overall, Wyrd Sisters is amusing but not compared to the previous five Discworld books.
