About this deal

As Esk grows up, it becomes apparent that she has uncontrollable powers, and the local witch Granny Weatherwax decides to travel with her to Unseen University in Ankh-Morpork to help her gain the knowledge required to properly manage her powers. Oradan istediğiniz seriye (evet "Diskdünya'da başlamak için çoklu seçenekler mevcut) başlayabilirsiniz. So, I´m back from the drunk cell, the pretrial is in 3 weeks, damned criminal records, heck, what a hangover, the brawl might be a reason too, but back to sophisticated literary criticism, beginning with laughing about the dirty old woman running gag and hoping to live long enough to become a dirty old man too.

Faced with the misogynistic world of wizardry, young Eskarina must fight for her right to become a student of magic at Ankh-Morpork’s ancient college of magic. Some carefully-positioned 'translations' like 'It's all Klatchian to me' can work, but if I went the whole hog and 'discworlded' every name and term, then the books would be even more impenetrable and would probably only be read by people who like learning Klingon.Thankfully Granny Weatherwax, the Discworld's most famous witch, has plenty of experience ignoring the status quo. it is well known that a vital ingredient of success is not knowing that what you're attempting can't be done. I firmly believe that Equal Rites is the best book to start with if you've never read Terry Pratchett or Discworld. This signifies that the child is destined to become a wizard; on the Discworld, the number eight has many of the magical properties that are sometimes ascribed to seven in other mythologies. Unfortunately the faculty’s ideas on equal rights are pretty ancient too, so Esk must prove her magical mettle in Terry Pratchett’s third Discworld Book, Equal Rites.

I loved Terry Pratchett's way with words and Celia Imrie's sublime narration, they kept me enthralled. The Dedication: "Thanks to Neil Gaiman, who loaned us the last surviving copy of the Liber Paginarum Fulvarum, [. It simply that the satire is definitely more directed at real world issues than fantasy tropes like the first two books. Pratchett was questioned that since the Discworld equivalent of Egypt is Djelibeybi, Hilta Goatfounder should have said, "Jellybabes always come here to the fair". She reminded me of a lot of middle-aged women who originally believed in the stereotypes and expectations of society but went on to change their minds as they encountered spirited youngsters.Excellent production quality, excellent choices about how to handle Death and the footnotes, largely excellent narrators.
