5 out of 5 (1 rating)


OTHER CHILDREN GET GIVEN XYLOPHONES. SUSAN JUST HAD TO ASK HER GRANDFATHER TO TAKE HIS VEST OFF. Yes. There's a Death in the family. It's hard to grow up normally when Grandfather rides a white horse and wields a scythe - especially when you have to take over the family business, and everyone mistakes you for the Tooth Fairy. And especially when you have to face the new and addictive music that has entered Discworld. It's lawless. It changes people. It's called Music With Rocks In. It's got a beat and you can dance to it, but...It's alive. And it won't fade away.

Review by

Finally we meet Susan, the granddaughter of Death. This is filled with references and puns to Rock 'n Roll, I'm sure there were more than I was able to spot. It may be the punniest book I've read yet. As with all Pratchett novels, you have an idea where the author is headed, but you haven't a clue which path he is going to take to get there. I worried a bit that the plot of this book was too similar to Moving Pictures, but in the end it didn't matter to me, I love movies and music and I love seeing them through Pratchett's kaleidoscope vision. The characters in this book spoke to me, resonated, one might say. I have two teenage boys who are determined to be the most famous musicians of all on their awesome bass and guitar.
