An absolutely hysterical and morbid take on Death! This book honestly delighted me, and bemoan the fact that current and modern writing isn't this quality. I can't wait to read the next book.

Quite enjoyable. Looking at the reviews of the later books, I'm a little hesitant to read more in the series. I probably will once I eliminate some of my backlog. One can never read too many books.

While the story was interesting there were times that the preaching broke the suspension of disbelief. This is the story of a man who kills death and finds himself with the job. The first part of the story is all about this growth into the role and his understanding of the importance of Death. Th...

This book is the most off-kilter provocative sequence of brilliant plot twists, and that in just the first 38 pages, better than I can ever remember reading in a long dry spell of reading Anthony or anyone else.I got unbearably excited, but Anthony had taken one of the greatest plot risks of all tim...

I am giving an extra star for original concept (Death as an office assumed by a mortal) and unique world (blend of science fiction and fantasy), as well as another star for the first few gripping chapters. If the writing ...

Magic stones, flying carpets, and a tricked out transforming Deathmobile. Piers Anthony mashed together fantasy and science fiction and came out with a recognizable alternate world in which God and the Devil battle it out for souls. A grudge match without religious mysticism. More of a public rel...

Not as good as I remember - and I am now a couple of decades of feminism down the line so there are a few things that made me roll my eyes. Still, once I put my urge to red pen to the side, I enjoyed it for old times' sake.

Wow! This book was really different. I loved the concept. I wished the world had been fleshed out a little better, but you can't have everything. I'm really glad my husband pushed me to read this.

A very strong start to a series. I have to admit though that I did lose interest towards the ending of the book. Mr. Anthony appeared in my mindset to linger to create a larger size book than was necessary. I do believe though that the originality and unique story line is more than enough though to ...
