'Wyrd Sisters' was a reread for me when the Sword and Laser book club on Goodreads picked it a couple months ago. I'm glad I took the time to reread it. It was just as funny as I remember it, and the satire was just as sharp.

You will get more out of this by understanding some Shakespeare (strong hints of Macbeth here), and some inkling of how theater troupes work. The three witches won't be stereotyped, but they tend to not bother with that, and even Death himself puts in a timely appearance.

You could do worse than to start your reading of the Discworld series here.
