I won't disagree and do really like that book, but my gut reaction is "Witches Abroad has moments of excellence within a goofy, fun book but L&L is top-notch cover-to-cover." But it's been a few years since I've read them.

This thread is reminding me that I've either read or reread every main Discworld novel in the past seven or eight years save one -- Small Gods. It's the only one I borrowed instead of bought to read, so it's never been sitting around me. It's one of the first ones I read, so...I'll be damned if it hasn't been nearly twenty years.

I should give myself that treat.

Witches Abroad is a good enough book, but it was Lords and Ladies when I began to think, "I love these people."

City Watch was immediate to me. I loved Carrot from his first pages. It took longer with the witches.
