'When you start believing in Spirits, you start believing in demons, and then before you know where you are, you're believing in Gods. And then you're in trouble.' Reality is all very well in small doses. It's a perfectly conventional and convenient way of neutralising the imagination. But sometimes when there's more than one reality at play, imagination just won't be neutralised, and the walls between realities come tumbling down. Unfortunately there's usually a damned good reason for there being walls between them in the first place. To keep things out. Things who want to make mischief and play havoc with the natural order...… (més)

Ridcully gets mad at his other selves because they didn't invite him to their weddings. Magrat marries Verence. Jason Ogg shoes a unicorn. ( )

Returning to Lords and Ladies for a re-read after many years is like slipping into a warm bath. One of my favourite novels, one of the first Pratchetts I ever read, about a Shakespeare play I enjoy deeply (except the last act, of course). It's a lightweight tale about fairies trying to take over the Discworld (or at least the bit of it important to Granny Weatherwax), and contains all the gentle comedy you'd expect but little of the biting satire that is Pratchett at his best. I think the witches are his best characters, and this is a fine little adventure. Recommended! ( )

Bellissimo! Però questa volta Pratchett mi ha fatto prendere un colpo quando ho creduto che Nonna Weatherwax fosse morta DAVVERO!
Adesso mi piacerebbe proprio sapere perchè accidenti gli ultimi due libri del Ciclo delle Streghe non sono ancora stati tradotti!!!!!!!
Maskerade (1995): Non ancora tradotto - sono passati SOLO VENT'ANNI dalla prima edizione.
Carpe Jugulum (1998): Non ancora tradotto - per questo invece possiamo ancora aspettare, è uscito solo 17 anni fa.
Roba da pazzi.
Domani me li compro in lingua originale. ( )

This re-telling of A Midsummer Night's Dream (yes, the bard's play) is clever Terry Pratchett work through and through. The book even feels like it has Shakespeare's 5 act structure. Every detail at the beginning of the story is a setup to a plot point later in the book, very nicely done; for that, this book earned 5 stars from me.

There are a few speeches by the character of Granny Weatherwax that definitely feel like The Voice of Terry Pratchett, so I found myself trying to apply those words to England, and the planet Earth in general, to determine what his message was. Maybe I was reading too much into it. Maybe I was applying our year 2020 debates on climate change, criticisms of the Green Revolution, COVID-19 pandemic conditions and responses, and popular isolationist politics to the text when it wasn't really there (I think this book was first published in 1992). Again, that's clever Terry Pratchett work -- you can make what you want out of it. At the very least, there is creative satire, excellent puns, laugh-out-loud wordplay, and raunchy allusions.

I did find that the Granny Weatherwax speeches slowed down the action at the tense climax of the story. I like to believe Pratchett did that intentionally to highlight those speeches as the real coreof the story.

An enjoyable read, focusing mainly on the Discworld witches Granny Weatherwax, Nanny Ogg, and Magrat. Magrat is due to get married to the King - this is a direct sequel to 'Wyrd Sisters' although she's having some doubts and finding it hard to feel natural in the role.

But the main story is about an attempt by the glamorous (but intrinsically evil) elves to take over the Disc, or at least the kingdom of Lancre. There's plenty of humour, and more than a nod to 'Midsummer Night's Dream', with some nice characterisation of various folk who came into earlier books.

I only remember reading this once in the past, possibly twice at most, and didn't recall it with any great fondness. But I liked it much more than I had expected. Recommended, but best read after 'Wyrd Sisters' (and possibly also 'Witches Abroad').

In front of her [Nanny Ogg] the cat Greebo, glad to be home again, lay on his back with all four paws in the air, doing his celebrated something-found-in-the-gutter impersonation.
'I learned my craft from Nanny Gripes,' said Granny Weatherwax, 'who learned it from Goody Heggety, who got it from Nanna Plumb, who was taught it by Black Aliss, who --'

'So what you're saying is,' said Diamanda, loading the words into the sentence like cartridges in a chamber, 'that no one has actually learned anything new?'
Elves are wonderful. They provoke wonder.
Elves are marvelous. They cause marvels.
Elves are fantastic. They create fantasies.
Elves are glamorous. They project glamour.
Elves are enchanting. They weave enchantment.
Elves are terrific. They beget terror.
The thing about words is that meanings can twist just like a snake, and if you want to find snakes look for them behind words that have changed their meaning.
No one ever said elves are nice.
