From the Publisher

"A sequence of unalloyed delight" - Guardian

"Truly funny books are very few and far between. Equal Rites is not only fizzy and hilarious, but is also a wonderful story well told ... This is his best book. Highly recommended" - The Good Book Guide

"A delightful. yarn, logically illogical as only Terry Pratchett can write. He's delightful, an utter nutter and funster-punster" - Anne McCaffrey

"You won't stop grinning except to chuckle or sometimes roar with laughter. The most hilarious fantasy since - come to think of it, since Pratchett"s previous outing" - Kirkus Reviews --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

From the Back Cover

The last thing the wizard Drum Billet did, before Death laid a bony hand on his shoulder, was to pass on his staff of power to the eighth son of an eighth son. Unfortunately for his colleagues in the chauvinistic (not to say misogynistic) world of magic, he failed to check on the new-born baby's sex...

From AudioFile

TThis novel from the Discworld science fiction series isa fun combination of fantasy with modern-day allusions. The reader brings a distinctive style and rhythm that suits the tale. The dry humor and tongue-in-cheek asides play well in the audio format. Celia Imrie portrays a young girl who believes she can become a wizard and an aging crone who is wise to the chauvinistic world of magic. The crone is a bit ragged and harsh in tone, fitting stereotypes concerning the village witch. In contrast, the young girl sounds as innocent and trusting as her character appears to be. An echo chamber effect is tried two or three times, adding little but not overly distracting either. J.E.M. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine --This text refers to an alternate Audio Cassette edition.
