The concept of Death needing an apprentice captures the imagination from the very start of this book.The fact He likes cats,enjoys curries and His horse is called Binky leaves you doubting all you have been brought up to believe. His choice of a gangely, knocked-kneed youth named Mort, presents us with our unlikely hero whose adventures unfold like a comedy of errors but, as in all good adventures, the hero wins through in the end. Terry Pratchett takes us on yet another magical journey of character descriptions,colourful places and wierd happenings(you can almost taste the scumble). Long may he write.
