Book Description
Tiffany Aching is a trainee witch — now working for the seriously scary Miss Treason. But when Tiffany witnesses the Dark Dance — the crossover from summer to winter — she does what no one has ever done before and leaps into the dance. Into the oldest story there ever is. And draws the attention of the wintersmith himself.

As Tiffany-shaped snowflakes hammer down on the land, can Tiffany deal with the consequences of her actions? Even with the help of Granny Weatherwax and the Nac Mac Feegle — the fightin’, thievin’ pictsies who are prepared to lay down their lives for their “big wee hag.”

Wintersmith is the third title in an exuberant series crackling with energy and humour. It follows The Wee Free Men

    I love the Tiffany Aching books. Tiffany is a beautiful main character, and Granny Weatherwax is always in them <3 and the Nac MacFeegles too! I loved the quasi-romance between Tiffany and the Wintersmith, how she kept rationally fightin it and yet couldn't completely deny her feelings. I also loved how sympathetic Tiffany always is (like with the hiver in A hat full of sky), how she can always manage to create a place of understanding within her, but still manage to do what's right in the bigger picture.

    Tiffany Aching is growing up, and so is the intended target for this novel. After a couple of "Discworld for younger readers" novels, Tiffany's adventures start intertwining with those of other major characters (the witches, of course). Already in the earlier books Pratchett made sure that she will not be necessarily involved in future witches adventures by binding her to her plains, but she would fit in the "full" Discworld novels no problem. A very nice, very good, very entertaining read once again. Even though there are no dragons.

    Tiffany Aching cresce, e compie tredici anni. Da buona preadolescente, si mette immediatamente nei casini, facendo in modo che l'Inverno si innamori di lei, scambiandola per l'Estate. In questo libro a metà tra il Discworld per ragazzi e quello standard, la storia parte piuttosto lentamente, e la prima metà del libro non è nulla di eccezionale. Fortunatamente nella seconda parte ingrana molto bene, e Pratchett, oltre che fare vedere come al solito il mondo in maniera diversa da quella a cui siamo abituati, lo fa anche in maniera deliziosamente umoristica. Ho accennato sul mio blog <a href="http://xmau.com/notiziole/arch/200712/003674.html">alla spiegazione del Limbo</a>: ma sono certo che gli esperti del Discworld si piegheranno in due come ho fatto io leggendo alla penultima pagina della grandissima prova di eroismo di Rob Anybody.
    Resta la preoccupazione per il futuro dello scrittore, cui è stato appena diagnosticata una rara forma di Alzheimer (vedi <a href="http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/7141458.stm">la BBC</a>).

    Definitely my favorite (thus far!) of the Tiffany Aching arc in the Discworld oeuvre. This is Pratchett at his best - elegant, witty, and profound.
