I would love to hear you thoughts on the witches. Rincewind was a default
choice since when I went to reread Equal Rites and Wyrd Sisters, I couldn't
find them. Finally realized that they were on lend to a sloooow

feeling flush enough to go looking - since I always end up buying more than
just the books I intend.
As for Rincewind, I can't come in with a ringing defense although I have
more sympathy for him than other readers have shown in other
discussions. He isn't a well rounded character, but he is a survivor, and
I have come to a point where I appreciate the well timed retreat more than
the unnecessary confrontation.<g>
