Pratchett, Terry: (18) Maskerade

After re-reading Lords and Ladies, I gave into the urge to re-read the rest of Terry Pratchett’s Witch sub-series of Discworld books, starting with the next, Maskerade. This is probably funnier if you know Phantom of the Opera well, or even at all—I’ve seen it, but I don’t remember a thing about it. However, though it’s much lighter than the books it comes between, it’s still an enjoyable enough diversion, perhaps especially when sleep-deprived.

  1. What’s funny is, I read Maskerade years (a decade?) before I saw Phantom, and when I did see it, I was all, “Oh, that’s the thing they’re mocking in Maskerade!” over and over.

  2. I suppose I could re-watch it, but since I didn’t like it very much to begin with, it seems like a lot of work to go to just for better understanding of the jokes here.
