I've read Mort twice so decided it's time I continued this series. Admittedly I enjoyed Mort less on the second reading, but the character of Death is one of Pratchett's most interesting ideas so I still wanted to carry on.
As Pratchett books go, I found it a little slower in parts than I expected. The overall story was interesting in itself, but some of the digressions went on a little longer than interest demanded. The humour was certainly there and the unique concepts of Death as an entity who might take a holiday or even die himself. How he interacts with people is definitely a strength of the book.
The wizards tended to witter on a bit too long to keep my attention, but the inception of The Death of Rats makes the whole book worthwhile! I'm unlikely to re-read this one, but I'm glad I've read it now and I'll continue with Soul Music before too long.

I was warned. The story starts out with a girl attempting to commit suicide, to join her twin sister in death. The writing is very good and takes the reader into the character's mindset in a way that someone who hasn't been depressed normally wouldn't experience. The transition when she begins to realize she doesn't really want to do this is remarkable and I think would serve as a good warning for anyone who has ever contemplated suicide. Most people do change their minds when it gets too real, though for some it's too late by then.
The one thing I couldn't reconcile was disincarnate spirits having tears, letting out breath and bleeding when they don't eat or have other physical characteristics. Feeling pain might have worked on its own but too many living attributes hampered the believability.
Despite this, there was some real originality in the events and I found the story an enjoyable read. I did guess the twist at the end by halfway through, but I tend to pick up easily on the slightest hint of foreshadowing. Towards the end some of the fast action lost me a little, but overall I thought it was a good story and a well-written, enjoyable read.
