Review by evilmoose
My last ever new Discworld novel. I've had the audiobook for a while, but have been sitting on it a little. Partly to save up the experience, and partly due to fear of disappointment. The last few Discworld books haven't really hit the spot for me - things have been getting formulaic, some previously great characters seem to be echos of their former selves. There are still flashes of brilliance, but it hasn't been quite the same.And I did enjoy this one - which, as noted, was not as finished as it would have been had Sir Terry been able to keep writing a little longer. But it was great to hear the story of Esme Weatherwax be tied up, and have the references to many of the other witches who I thought we'd never see again. And it wasn't perfect, but it was enjoyable (and certainly more memorable than Snuff).
