Equal Rites

Equal Rites by Terry Pratchett is the 3rd book in the Discworld series. This one is lots of fun, better than the first 2, and inspires me to keep reading them. I love Granny Weatherwax.

from the back of the book:
In Equal Rites, a dying wizard tries to pass on his powers to an eighth son of an eighth son, who is just at that moment being born. The fact that the son is actually a daughter is discovered just a little too late... says
As always, a trip to Terry Pratchett's Discworld provides a reliably silly holiday from mundane reality, by way of pure reading magic.

SFSignal calls it "mediocre".

Dave Langford's Ansible review says,
Pratchett's ultimate secret lies in the fact that without betraying earth-shaking literary genius, his writing is unpretentious and likeable.
