This was a well delivered performance of an information filled history of the Roma. Well done! It’s hard to find information that is not racially tainted or bias on the Romani but this book rise to the occasion and presents an unbiased honest and documented history. Enjoyed it completely.

Wonderfully Witchy!!

This is a terrific primer on the path of the Green Witch. The author has written a very comprehensive guide useful both to those just exploring and to more seasoned earth witches. Well read, it is a terrific gift for oneself or ones apprentice.

Terry Pratchett was a writer for readers who read a lot and do a lot more than read! In Wyrd Sisters, he delivers references to the Marx Brothers, Charlie Chaplin, Laurel&Hardy; and a generous nod to the great bard William Shakespeare. I recognized the over laying reference to Macbeth, in Terry’s borrowing of "dagger of the mind", "out damned spot", the ghost of the dead King, the three witches and a play-within-a-play from Hamlet. He also borrowed "all the world's a stage" from As You Like It, and from King Lear, with Duke Felmet descending into madness in the company of his Fool. In addition, the company of actors includes playwright "Hwel", or "Will", and the company is building a theatre called "The Dysk" in Ankh-Morpork, calling to mind the Globe Theatre in London.
As with all of Terry Pratchetts work, it is brilliantly written, never talks down to the reader, and was a pleasure to have it ‘read to me’ by Celia Imrie.
