Description

The witches of the Discworld are back! An hysterical exploration of the magical world of the opera, brimming with Sir Terry Pratchett's stylish wit'Pratchett uses his other world to hold up a distorting mirror to our own' The TimesTHE SHOW MUST GO ON, AS MURDER, MUSIC AND MAYHEM RUN RIOT IN THE NIGHT... The Opera House, Ankh-Morpork... A huge, rambling building, where innocent young sopranos are lured to their destiny by a strangely familiar evil mastermind in a hideously deformed evening dress... At least, he hopes so. But Granny Weatherwax, Discworld's most famous witch, is in the audience. And she doesn't hold with that sort of thing. So there's going to be trouble (but nevertheless a good evening's entertainment with murders you can really hum...)Readers love Maskerade:'This book had me sniggering and even laughing out loud every 20 pages or so, it truly was an excellent novel, and for the time being, my favourite characters?

Well it has to be the Witches' Goodreads reviewer, 'This one was as usual laugh out loud funny.

Granny Weatherwax is a wonderful character and then Death made several cameo appearances too which is always good.

Pratchett was a master of parody' Goodreads reviewer, 'This book contains some of the best Pratchett quotes ever regarding all sorts of topics from people in power, money and fate to general human nature' Goodreads reviewer, 'An unexpected favourite from the series so far, I loved every page' Goodreads reviewer, 'Every bit of the story is comic, from Nanny Ogg's obscene recipes to the transformation of Greebo the cat into Lord Gribeaux.

Esme Weatherwax is just as wise and cranky as ever' Goodreads reviewer,
