Additional Information

Another great title in the Discworld Series!! The last thing that 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 newborn baby's sex. . . This is a story about magic and where it goes and perhaps more importantly, where it comes from and why, although it doesn't pretend to answer all or any of these questions.

I bought the audio book because I wanted to listen to one of my favorite books while driving to work.
Rated it ONE star because of several reasons.
1. This audiobook is ABRIDGED. Should have figured out it out as it is 3 cds for a total of 3 hours.
2. There are NO Zoons. One of my favorite parts of the story... Zoons, raft trip, the liar.
3. There are several other instances of abridgement...
4. The reader, Tony Robinson, had two different volumes especially on the first cd. His narrative voice was strong and clear. His character voice dropped in volume 100 plus percent. I needed to turn the sound up to hear what characters said and then would get blasted out by the narrative. He does have a nice voice and I would listen to his readings again if he gets better production editing.
Equal Rites is a book about a girl named Esk who is both witch and wizard, a seeming impossibility given the tight gender roles of magic in Discworld. She's a spitfire, which is to say obstinate yet lovable. But her coming-of-age is really only the vehicle to explore Discworld, its magical physics, and its amazing characters.

If you love Granny Weatherwax and the Unseen University and want to see them in action together, then you'll love this book. If not but you already know and like Discworld and its inhabitants, you'll very likely enjoy this book. If you've never read a Discworld book, don't start here. It's an early entry in the series, but it uses shortcuts to explaining the magic of the world that might not have been so enjoyable had I not read more about Discworld.

Because it's an early book, there are some things about the writing that make Discworld very fresh and exciting to read about, such as the greater mapping out of the magical world, and some... Read more
I was a huge fan of the first two books in the discworld series. This book was still good but I found the characters much less lovable and relatable than in the previous book (honestly I just miss Rincewind). I did however enjoy the in philosophical analysis of the power of magic described in the book a "headology". Pratchett also continues to break the boundaries of reality and push into realms of obscure imagination. Go Pratchett. Also on a personal note this book may have downloaded improperly but the book skipped around and the chapters were out of chronological order. I've never seen the printed edition of the book so I don't know how if this is actually how the book was written, but reading the ending of the book half-way through the story kind of ruined the rest of the book for me. Pratchett for Prime Minister.
