    Johannes Cabal the Necromancer de Jonathan L. Howard (PitcherBooks)
    PitcherBooks: While Howard's Cabal is a Necromancer (one who can raise the dead - in a fashion) And Pratchett's DEATH is the embodiment of death (which comes to us all)... The commonality is really that wonderful quirky British humor. Pratchett is an old favorite of mine and I have read every one of his books. Howard is my new favorite and I plan to read every one of his books. If you like one, odds are you'll totally enjoy the other...… (més)

    Fluke, or, I Know Why the Winged Whale Sings de Christopher Moore (Zaklog)
    Zaklog: Although American, not British, Christopher Moore has a very similar sense of humor to Pratchett's. And if you like a story about an unsuspecting, innocent (and often clumsy) man accidentally becoming the Grim Reaper, you'll probably like Moore's book as well. Another wonderful characteristic the two authors share is their ability to combine a bizarre sense of humor with very serious moral subjects. So once you finish the newest Pratchett novel, be sure to check out Christopher Moore.… (més)

It's Pratchett so obviously it's good.

I'm still slightly confused about what happened at the ending. But I don't especially mind. ( )

A good quick read. You can tell that it is an early Discworld novel. Still fun, still laugh out loud funny, it's just missing the thriving world of Mr. Pratchett's later novels. I think it's good and I love his Death character. ( )

When Death takes time off to explore human pleasures, Mort takes over and makes a mistake. ( )
  Saraishelafs | Nov 4, 2020 |
Mort is the kind of guy who fails at everything, is gawky, and the only reason he doesn't disappoint everyone is because they already assume he won't be good at it, whatever "it" is. His father takes him to town to the square on the day apprentices are chosen, for all the trades. After all the vendors and others have gone home, Mort and his father are still there. He even failed at this. Then Death shows up.

Death has decided to acquire an apprentice. Because Death needs a holiday and death never stops.

But Mort is Mort and he is human, so the task of taking over for an immortal being who's been around since the first life began its journey is, to say the least, not an easy task. Or even a likely one. It's not made any easier when Death becomes enamored with living and becomes a short order cook in a pub, so he can cook and play with kittens, leaving Mort to take over, after a single day of solo experience.

Mort falls in love (or infatuation, either way) with a princess he is supposed to take. So he saves her, instead. The universe decides this is not acceptable and promptly begins to suffer the kind of angst that ends with people ceasing to exist, as it works to fix the problem with fate that Mort has caused. This may end with the princess dying anyway and Mort having to face up to Death, for the problems he's caused.

Nothing to do, but attempt to circumvent the demands of Death, death, and fate. If only anyone had any clue how to do that. And before Death finds out what's going on, in his absence.

Yet another fun adventure in the flat Earth of Discworld!

This was ok. I struggled to read the book because it just didn't hold my interest. it was the audiobook that finally got me through it. The puns gave me a few chuckles and a handful of groans. I really disliked tge portrayal of the female characters in the book as well as the relationships between the final "love" matches. ( )

This is the bright candlelit room where the lifetimers are stored - shelf upon shelf of them, squat hourglasses, one for every living person, pouring their fine sand from the future into the past.

There should be a word for that brief period just after waking when the mind is full of warm pink nothing.
‘[Death] doesn’t like wizards and witches much,’ Mort volunteered. 
‘Nobody likes a smartass,’ she said with some satisfaction. ‘We give him trouble, you see. Priests don’t, so he likes priests.’ 
‘He’s never said,’ said Mort. 
‘Ah. They’re always telling folk how much better it’s going to be when they’re dead. We tell them it could be pretty good right here if only they’d put their minds to it.’
