by Terry Pratchett This was a re-read for me, although a lot of years passed in between. The figure of Death is undeniably one of Pratchett's best characters and the character develops a lot in this story, but it's actually about Mort, who becomes Death's apprentice. Mort is arguably another of ...

As much as I love whenever Death shows up in each book – his brief scenes are always hilarious – I expected to really love this first DW book featuring Death as a main character. It was a little bit disappointing, though. Death was as fun as ever, but for whatever reason I just didn’t connect with M...

"There should be a word for that brief period just after waking when the mind is full of warm pink nothing.

Death was standing behind a lectern, poring over a map. He looked at Mort as if he wasn’t entirely there. YOU HAVEN’T HEARD OF THE BAY OF MANTE, HAVE YOU? he said. ‘No, sir,’ said Mort. FAMOUS SHIPWRECK THERE. ‘Was there?’ THERE WILL BE, said Death, IF I CAN FIND THE DAMN PLACE. Ok, this made...

Hmm. I suspect like other early Discworld books (particularly Equal Rites), I'm going to come to like this one considerably better upon a reread. Going by first impressions, it begins with a hefty shower of sparkle, and both dialogue and plot hit high points whenever either of the two female leads...

Series: Discworld #4 Definitely not one of the stronger books in the series, but listening to it was enjoyable enough.
