According to many, this is the book where the author really got into his stride with his Discworld novels, and that the first three were appetisers. I'm not sure about that. It certainly runs on well from the earlier books, and as usual, you can easily read it as a standalone, although having read the previous volumes, you have a bit of a headstart concerning Discworld, and some of its places and inhabitants. The main characters in this episode are Death - who we have met in previous stories - and Mort, to whom Death offers an apprenticeship. I won't go into the story, as it would spoil it for you, but it is well written, well paced, and had - for me - a few geniune 'laugh out loud' moments.
I have enjoyed all four books I have now read in the series, and although this one is perhaps a little better plotted and paced, I would urge you to read them in order, as they make more sense that way. There are some great characters - Death is a wonderful creation - and many events do actually make you stop and think. Certainly Discworld is imaginary, but imagined worlds always allow authors to reflect on our own, real world.

I recently took the decision to start reading the Terry Pratchett books, which I'd never tried before. The first two were a bit ropey to be honest, with good ideas but slighly confused narrative and poor characterisation. Luckily it's an upward curve and his offbeat sense of humour is really starting to show by this point. The books really benefit from re-reading, as there are things that you'll miss the first time through.

Probably the funniest DiscWorld novel I have read so far. It takes a few to get under the skin of the author but then it just gets funnier
This is about a reality that is different from ours but which is logical as of itself In the same way that " Lord of the Rings" is. This is nowhere near so dense and literary as "Lord of the Rings" but on the other hand is a lot funnier

As ever excellent. I have read, and re-read all of Pratchett's books many times and will continue to do so. Such a loss to the world of literature. My sympathies go out to his family, who must feel his loss most keenly.

As always I enjoyed reading another of Terry Pratcheitt's books. His way of writing makes the reader believe in the characters as much as the author did. Terry's passing was a loss to everyone

Suspend judgement. True it is not perfect, but there is nothing like this in the world of the written. Patrick.
