Not Dead and not buried.......

AdvantagesRip roaring side splitting fun from start to finish

DisadvantagesNot everyone can get Pterrys style.

"Mort - Terry Pratchett. ~ About the Author ~ Terry Pratchett is one of the best known of Fantasy writers out there. He began writing in 1983, and when I first began reading his books (I read his second novel The Light Fantastic just after publication) no-one really knew who he was! It couldn't be more different today, and this has lead to one bizarre claim to fame - In the UK, he holds the record for the greatest number of books that are shoplifted! ..." Read review

DEATH comes......a-hiring

AdvantagesGood characters | Stronger Story | Very Readable | Many Layers |

DisadvantagesNot as funny as some of the books

"...again he might just send Mort (his new apprentice) instead….. As this, the fourth of the Discworld series begins, we meet Mortimer, a gangly lad who not only appears to be all elbows and knees, but also thinks about things rather more than is good for him. He's not a bad lad, just not the type his father wants working on the farm, and so he is taken to the hiring fare, in the hope that he might be suitable for a trade, any trade. Sadly, as the ..."

Death. An awfully big adventure

AdvantagesWill make you laugh and cry - possibly both at once

DisadvantagesNot a lot

"...the name of Mortimer, or Mort for short ("HOW APPROPRIATE"). After a short discussion, he is taken on. So far, so good, and Mort's early days in Death's domain pass reasonably pleasantly, if you can call shovelling barrowloads of horse manure pleasant. The real problems set in when he is entrusted with THE DUTY, which is to say the nitty-gritty of actually separating souls from their erstwhile owners. He is given three jobs to do - the first is ..." Read review

"I'm buggered if I know."

AdvantagesFunny, fast paced, interesting side characters.

DisadvantagesSilly?

"Mort stands silently next to his father, the last remaining boy at the hiring fair. Approaching midnight it appears that no one is willing to take him on as an apprentice. His father told him all that thinking and reading of books put people off and perhaps he was right. Suddenly, a horse appears with a hooded figure aboard. Perhaps things will turn out all right after all… "Mort" is Terry Pratchett's fourth Discworld novel. Sat on a flat, disc ..." Read review

Discworld starts here...

AdvantagesSuperbly written, very engaging, main focus is on Death, which is always nice.

DisadvantagesShorter than many of the later books

"...next few weeks and months, Mort is gradually introduced to all aspects of the job, and is doing well, until one trip causes him to see the Princess Keli, with whom he falls immediately in love. When Death finally entrusts Mort with what is onerously known as THE DUTY for the first time, Mort is distraught to learn that one of the souls he is about to reap is that of the Princess. Against all reason, and with little or no regard for the time-space ..." Read review
