Le tre streghe più irriverenti e improbabili della letteratura sono tornate in quello che finora è il mio volume preferito della serie.
Innanzitutto perché ho una passione per le fiabe e l'approccio che ha scelto Pratchett per parlarne lo trovo intelligente ed ancora originale, nonostante i retelling che hanno imperversato negli ultimi anni lo abbiano reso un argomento un po' abusato; poi perché l'idea di questo trio scanzonato in viaggio mi porta a fare parallelismi con il mio amato Tre uomini in barca di Jerome, altro brillante esempio di umorismo inglese.
Per il resto qui ritroviamo tutti i lati positivi dei libri precedenti, a cominciare dalle protagoniste in grande spolvero e con personalità sempre più sfaccettate (io poi ho un debole per Tata Ogg, meravigliosamente prosaica); anche lo stile resta vivace e dinamico, un mix di momenti demenziali alternati a scene più intense.
E' innegabile però che la comicità toglie spazio all'epicità, e arrivata al terzo volume ho capito una volta per tutte che pur godendomi la lettura io non mi appassionerò mai per davvero a una saga che non si prende sul serio. Non è tuttavia un difetto che posso imputare al libro, che al di là delle mie preferenze resta una pietra miliare del fantasy umoristico. ( )

I had a very good time with this book, and it might just be the best one in the witches' series so far. Granny Weatherwax & Nanny Ogg are on fire and their characterization is on point. Definitely worth a reread some day. ( )

Þriðja bókin um nornirnar þrjár í Diskheimaseríunni. Nú ferðast þær á milli landa til að koma í veg fyrir hamingjusaman endi ævintýris sem norna-guðmóðir hefur í hyggju að koma í kring. Pratchett gerir stólpagrín að hinum klassísku ævintýrasögum og stöðluðum sögnum þeirra. ( )

An excellent riff on fairy tales. I'm not actually sure what to say about it beyond that. If you've read any of the discworld books, this one won't disappoint you.

I listened to the audiobook, and Nigel Planer did an excellent job, though I disliked his Magrat and Ella choices; his voices for them both made them sound dull and stupid. On the other hand, I've also listened to other Pratchett books narrated by Celia Imrie and I really disliked her Granny Weatherwax voice; Planer gets Granny just right - she's the crone without hurting your ear drums.

The plays on words are always my favorite part of Pratchett books and Witches Abroad did not disappoint (Emberella = Cinderella). I also loved the we finally saw Granny's magic in a very decisive show; I hope it won't be the only time we see it. ( )

Perhaps because the novel's picaresque structure seems commodious rather than contrived, one reads with less of an obtrusive sense of stage machinery being wheeled into place. Still, Pratchett's taste for complicated climactic scenes remains, so that his novels, rather than coming to a point as much comedy does, tend to blow apart like a firecracker.

Nanny Ogg quite liked cooking, provided there were other people around to do things like chop up the vegetables and wash the dishes afterwards.
Genua had once controlled the river mouth and taxed its traffic in a way that couldn't be called piracy because it was done by the city government.

Be careful what you wish for... Once upon a time there was a fairy godmother named Desiderata who had a good heart, a wise head, and poor planning skills-which unforunately left the Princess Emberella in the care of her other (not quite so good and wise) godmother when DEATH came for Desiderata. So now it's up to Magrat Garlick, Granny Weatherwax, and Nanny Ogg to hop on broomsticks and make for far-distant Genua to ensure the servant girl doesn't marry the Prince. But the road to Genua is bumpy, and along the way the trio of witches encounters the occasional vampire, werewolf, and falling house (well this is a fairy tale, after all). The trouble really begins once these reluctant foster-godmothers arrive in Genua and must outwit their power-hungry counterpart who'll stop at nothing to achieve a proper "happy ending"-even if it means destroying a kingdom.
