Witches on Holiday Make ‘Ugly Americans’ Look Like Saints

Three witches take a road trip through the Discworld on a quest to complete a deceased fairy god-mother’s last wishes: The goal, to stop the wishes of a princess from coming true, and instead give her what she really needs.

Not my favorite Discworld book by far, but still an entertaining read concealing hidden depths. Nice expansion on the three witch characters from some previous stories, though I think Magrat’s role should have been stronger. Weatherwax & Ogg were spot on though. The dialog during the final confrontation between the story’s “villain” & “hero” was excellent, though the final result of that confrontation felt somewhat anticlimactic.
