They say there are only two things you can count on ... But that was before Death started pondering the existential. Of course, the last thing anyone needs is a squeamish Grim Reaper and soon his Discworld bosses have sent him off with best wishes and a well-earned gold watch. Now Death is having the time of his life, finding greener pastures where he can put his scythe to a whole new use. But like every cutback in an important public service, Death's demise soon leads to chaos and unrest -- literally, for those whose time was supposed to be up, like Windle Poons. The oldest geezer in the entire faculty of Unseen University -- home of magic, wizardry, and big dinners -- Windle was looking forward to a wonderful afterlife, not this boring been-there-done-that routine. To get the fresh start he deserves, Windle and the rest of Ankh-Morpork's undead and underemployed set off to find Death and save the world for the living (and everybody else, of course).… (més)

Another Pratchett favourite. Anything written by the master with Death in is good! ( )

My sixth Discworld novel, the third with Death as central character. Reaper Man can be seen as a variant of the story in Mort, in which Death takes time off and decides to lead a more human life on Discworld. This, of course, has serious consequences, as the regular cycle of life and death is broken. What/who is about to die... will not be fully dead. He/She/It cannot go to the other side, thus has to return to the last known "home". A building of life force, as is written.

The wizards of Unseen University have their hands full with an invading force of glass snowballs and iron-wired buckets who seem to lead a life of their own, or better, driven by a supernatural force, similar to an ant farm or beehive.

In addition, one of the oldest wizards, Windle Poon, is one of the undead. Many are surprised to still see him around, others are not. But together they experience crazy adventures, also with the invading snowballs.

Death, in the meantime, pretty much enjoys his human life on the farm, where he has to take care of the harvest... with a scythe. Death is one of Pratchett's best characters, not just in his behaviour, but foremost in the way he communicates, not forgetting the dry humor. Simply brilliant stuff here!

However, Death is badly needed again, as the new guy(s) are rather poor at being his replacement(s). Or rather, he's sent out to finish the one and only Death. The real Death, aka Bill Door, quickly sets up a plan to avoid this.

Of course, there's more than fantasy and entertainment here. The book also contains a view on life and the relation with death, or how the cycle should not be broken, because it can have serious, if not nasty, consequences. Or how one should appreciate life more. The ending is quite deep, very philosophical.

Long story short: This is one of the better/best novels in the series, seriously! The humour, the dialogues, the action, the philosophical elements, ... Must read! ( )

Death is at it again because he is scheduled to die. He has interesting experiences and some such nonsense. ( )
