    "Douglas Adams' novel has no category, really: one can't call it straight sci fi, or fantasy. It's part satire and part philosophical novel. When I was young I didn't really like this book; as I've gotten older I've learned to appreciate its wry and sometimes silly humor. "

    "This is a fair solution to the topic. It is a very subjective topic to a very broad range of humorous books. You certainly would not be able to call this one the best, but there may be someone that does. It does have many good reviews so people do like it but again it would be hard to call it the best. "

Where Granny might trample on frivolity with her hard boots, Nanny dances to it in her red ones. Throughout Witches Abroad, we see Nanny deftly stepping in with impeccable comic timing and deceptive motherliness to smoothen Granny’s sharp edges. Granny alone in a story - as we currently know her - would be too angry without a more grounded character like Nanny to bounce off. In this dynamic duo, more than any others in DIscWorld so far, Pratchett has created a perfect partnership that works hand in glove where one cracks the whip and the other softens the blow. A shout out to Nanny, she who often gets overshadowed by Granny but makes me laugh the loudest. "
