This isn t an easy review to write This has been my first encounter with the Discworld universe and the many writings of Terry Pratchett and voicing my opinion on it makes me feel like a blundering fool stumbling into a world that was meant for his younger and perhaps wiser self a world of which he has only caught a glimpse Let s start with kicking in an open door Boy uh sorry Mort is a very funny novel Death being a wonderfully serious topic becomes a great source of laughter and smiles in the hands of Sir Pratchett The book contains the kind of humour that shows the common sense of absurdity and showcases the author s very refreshing look on things I think for readers young and old this different and highly original perspective is something to be appreciated and praised Comments that follow below are in no way intended to put but s and maybe it would have been better s alongside this praise An author who is able to describe a voice by the amount of time it could keep milk fresh is above all that He knew what he was doing and he did it extremely wellThat said I don t think I ll be returning to the Discworld universe very soon It felt as much too light a read I intentionally picked the Discworld novel with the Death theme not because I m a dark character but because I was half expecting some philosophical wisdoms holed up here and there I guess there were some but not as much as I had expected There s not half a page that takes itself seriously sometimes to such an extent that I was wondering why I should continue reading it The plot is there but it s rather thin so the jokes are what really drives this novel forward It s strange really I m all for jokes but I expect a bit flesh in a book I d compare it to going to see a stand up comedian specialized in one liners First of all you need a bit of warming up as a member of the audience let go of a certain air of seriousness set your mind ready for a laughing spree and go with the flow I had the same need when reading this The lightness of the book initially annoyed me and it took me a couple of pages to just enjoy the humour of it Which I did But like with a stand up comedy an hour or two is enough I had the same with this book resulting in short bouts of reading pleasure sandwiched between mild annoyance and mild boredom Apparently there s only so much I can take when it comes to footnotes representing a stream of consciousness plummeting into the absurd however pleasurable that plunge can be I d definitely recommend giving the Discworld Universe a try if you haven t already but do it sooner rather than later I think a young reader s mind will appreciate it much even though there s something in there for all ages which I ll try to show in closing with my favorite uotes of the book Rather than drown in uncertainty it was best to surf right on top of it There should be a word for the microscopic spark of hope that you dare not entertain in case the mere act of acknowledging it will cause it to vanish like trying to look at a photon You can only sidle up to it looking past it walking past it waiting for it to get big enough to face the world These uotes don t accurately show the humour of the book mind you Death may have no feelings no sense of justice and a rather grim visage but he s bound to make you laugh

Being one of the first and the latest of all the Pratchett reads I m really surprised just how much I loved this one I m upping the star count to a full five just because I think I liked Mort the character even better this time aroundDEATH on DISCWORLD Seriously there s nothing uite like it Him The personification He meddles so much with humanity tries to get drunk and hires an apprentice Not all in that order Death is the mewling cat at the party of life The story is a bit interesting I must say than the ones immediately preceding it and of all the books I think it captures the essential spirit of all the ones to come after High praise no I hope so Very funny stuff
