Kind of cute but no page turner

by BJCAT1 on Sep 7, 2008

Equal Rites is part of Pratchett's Disc World series, so familiarity with the basics would be helpful for any new reader. The theme in this volume has to do with a male-magic dominated forced to recognize that females have a right to access the higher ranks of magicdom. This is the story of a young girl who has magical powers and gifts, learns to use them, and eventually challenges the magical hierarchy for a place of her own. Pratchett's is a master wordsmith-- his plays on words are clever, and his characters are unfailingly colorful. This volume, however, is thinner on story line than some of his other works. Good for a few hours of light reading and some good chuckles.
