5.0 out of 5 stars This is a blinder of a Pratchett Novel, 18 Jan. 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Soul Music: (Discworld Novel 16) (Discworld Novels) (Paperback)
This has to be one the Pratchett greats. I have read this book time and again and I still find a bit of humour I missed at each pass.
The storyline is based in Ankh-Morpork, the Diskworld's city that never sleeps. This time its unlikely that anyone will get any sleep as Music With Rocks In breaks through the thin walls of reality that encompass the fragile universe that Discworlders call home.
Imp y Cellyn, alias Buddy (of the Holly), wishes to be the most famous musician in the world. Unfortunately wishes like that can lead to trouble, as they most often do in the Discworld.
The story takes off as we are introduced to the key characters Susan, Death's granddaughter, and Buddy, leader of the Band With Rock's In. Susan has been pulled into the reality gap left by the absence of her anthropomorphically personified granddad Death as he has disappeared in search of forgetfulness?!? Unfortunately things don't go quite to plan for Susan. She is disillusioned by the fact that the good die young and the bad die old and prosper. She wants to make a few changes and nothing like the laws of the Universe are going to stop her!
When it comes to Buddy's turn to ascend from this mortal coil, Susan is bent on saving his life. Before she can act the Music saves Buddy's life instead. From now on all is a hectic whirlwind of swirling adventure and misadventure, hellbent towards achieving the magical climax of this not-to-be-missed literary escapade.
Possibly one of my most favorite books ever.
