Just Finished Reading: Terry Pratchett's Witches Abroad #books

I recently read Terry Pratchett's Witches Abroad, what can I say... It's a lovely wonderland of children's fairy tales, and the same thing occurred as the time I read Moving Pictures. (see my review here.) He spends so much time putting in all these references that it makes the book less fun to read. I already know all these fairy tales, but Roald Dahl made a better job of fiddling with the stories in Revolting Rhymes than Pratchett.

I'm not saying it's not a good read. It's very entertaining, funny at times and the WeatherWax character is brilliant.

Will I read another Pratchett? Probably, but just not today!
