Lords and Ladies Book at Shop Ireland (1710 words)
Lords and Ladies is enough to get a new reader hooked on Pratchett's unique genius, but you won't truly appreciate this novel unless you read Wyrd Sisters and Witches Abroad first.
Lords & Ladies, the 14th novel in Terry Pratchett's Discworld series, is a wonderful return to Pratchett form for me. It is laugh-out-loud funny and a wonderful parody of Shakespeare's Midsummer Night's Dream.
Lords and Ladies is one of the best discworld novels, a laugh-out-loud, page-turning adventure that will keep you enthralled and definately one you'll read over and over and over again, if only for the bit where Magrat gets so angry she even manages to scare Greebo!
