This is the second book in the Discworld Death series and I have to say I think it's the better of the two I've read so far. I find the characters a bit more connectable, a bit more real in this one than Mort. I also find that the flow of this book works better for me.
However, the story isn't quite grabbing me even though the idea is quite exciting and interesting. I'm not really sure why. I do like it and I want to see what happens but I'm glad this doesn't seem to be a long book.
Death trying to be a human and failing continues to be funny and so very sad at the same time. Windle Poons grew on me quickly as well as Modo and of course the Death of Rats. I've heard about the latter enough from Pratchett fans. I didn't realize how he came into being.
