Review of Lords and Ladies by Terry Prachett

Title: Lords and Ladies
Author: Terry Pratchett
Rating: 5/5


So, this time around we have what happened on a Midsummer’s Night (now if only it had been a dream). And I must say that, next to Death, Granny is my favourite character. But of course, there’s also Magrat, Nanny and Greebo. All of ‘em muddled in their own escapades.
To be honest, I didn’t feel as if there was a central figure who rises over the others in this story. There is a fair bit going on, weddings and elves breaking into this world (not the splendid Tolkienesque ones, the more sinister type of older folktales).
Some bits where quite thought-inducing, while others (a fair bit of them, actually) had me giggling in some quiet corner. Especially when it came to Casanunda meeting the Elven King (who apparently looks a lot like his picture).
The best bit was, naturally, at the end with the bees and the unicorn. And, after everything that had happened, there was still a happy ending and a wedding. Granted, what with all the turmoil, it wasn’t exactly how it was meant to go, but still ... hurray!
