First I read the second book „Wintersmith“, which I liked most of all four books, after I knew all of them. But I would recommend to read them in the correct order. And I liked them all an the way the story develops while Tiffany is growing up. I like the Feegles very much, how they talk an act. And I love Horace the cheese.
I was quite relieved about the ending (*shhh*) of the fourth book, actually – what about you? „I shall wear midnight“ was pretty grim and I missed Granny Weatherwax and Nanny Ogg a little but overall I liked it very much.
Thanks for your comment.
I was relieved about the ending too. I have assumed in the middle of the book an was happy to read that my guess hast been correct. You are right, Granny Weatherwax and Nanny Ogg are missing in the last part of the story, I had liked them to take participate in the ending. But nevertheless I liked the book very much. I loved all of them.
