Now here are two fantastic role models for us all. And to think I shunned Terry Pratchett all those years, thinking he was just for boys.
But who do you identify with?
Weatherwax - wise, introverted, able to enter her spirit into the body of an animal, someone who wants to influence the course of events. Probably only an honorary Granny.
Or Ogg - mother, brilliant midwife, bit of a disgraceful old baggage. In the one I am reading at the moment she has just written a book about rude looking food and is being ripped off by the publisher (Masquerade ? sp).
(At the other end of the age scale Tiffany Aching (is that right sp) is a brave heroine, up there with my beloved Lyra. Tight call between Northern Lights and A Hatful of Sky (plus the others in the series).
I am very taken with the werewolf who is also a female police officer as well.)
I have to say, having hummed and ha-ed I identify more with Weatherwax.
