"Unadulterated fun. . . witty, frequently hilarious." —San Francisco Chronicle

The third novel in New York Times bestselling author Terry Pratchett's Discworld series, a fantasy universe where anything can happen—and usually does.

A dying wizard tries to pass his staff on to the eighth son of an eighth son. When it is revealed that the he is a girl named Esk, the news of the female wizard sends the citizens of Discworld into a tail-spin.

With their biting satire and limitless imagination, it is easy to understand why 80 million Discworld books have been sold worldwide. Equal Rites possesses rich characterizations, a journey of awareness, and even a hint of romance from master storyteller Terry Pratchett.


  • Page order

    By Tony95112
    On the iPhone 6+ the right order to read is: 1 - 68 (ends with granny writing a letter) 163 - 244 (starts with the text of the letter written on p.68) 69 - 162 Perhaps other screen sizes get a different amount on each page?
  • First and second halves need to be switched around--pls fix!!

    By Karlijill
    I love Terry Pratchett and the book is great. BUT somehow the first and second halves of this book have been switched around. So halfway through the book you realize that you're now reading what is actually the first part of the story. Not cool. Please fix this error!!
  • Mangled chapters.

    By Sanswalden
    A large section of the eBook is in the wrong order. The book is wonderful and worth five stars. Having to hunt around in order to read the book in its intended order takes two of those stars away.
  • Chapters out of order

    By The Elves
    The three stars are not for the content of the book but for the way in which the book was downloaded. There are chapters out of order. This definitely detracted from the enjoyment of reading it. Please review and fix this fault.
  • Missing section

    By X-Mom
    Great read, as all his work is. Unfortunately, a big section was cut from the middle and placed at the end making it a very disjointed read. Buy the paperback instead.
