Not laugh-out-loud funny, but good in its way. A suitably odd look at music causing the youth (and not so youthful) of Ankh-Morpork to get a bit carried away.A good selection of characters, with some nice in-jokes.

Every now and then, we get one of those “real world stuff bleeds into the Discworld” books. For example, Moving Pictures involved, as you might guess, a sudden discovery of and obsession about movies. With a Discworld flare, of course. Those books are the ones I seem to enjoy the least. Soul Mus...

Discworld #16 Having initially read the Discworld books completely out of order, I’m not sure how much of the plot and backstory I should be giving away here. This is the first book with Susan, and it’s basically about how Rock ‘n’ Roll comes to the Discworld. Of course, since this is the Discwo...

Death takes a sort of holiday, so the Death of Rats goes looking for Death's granddaughter to fill the gap. Susan is off in boarding school, being an unusually practical teenager with no memory of her grandfather, when she gets the message. Meanwhile a bard, a troll, and a dwarf meet up and form a b...

This was not my favorite disc world book. I let it sit unlistened to for long spans of time, though, which might have been the problem... I had trouble keeping track of what was going on. There were a lot of funny references to modern music culture (well, not recent stuff, but within the last 40 yea...

A rollicking good time on the Discworld when a new form of music hits Ankh-Morpork and Death decides to wonder what everything is all about. For those who know their rock-n-roll, you'll have quite a few chuckles and a few groans over the puns. And of course, Death, Susan and Death of Rats get all of...

Any and all Discworld novels starring Death are a must-read. This one is no exception :) Plus: there's music, too ;)
