Description

'He is screamingly funny. He is wise. He has style' Daily Telegraph'His spectacular inventiveness makes the Discworld series one of the perennial joys of modern fiction' Mail on SundayIt is known as the Discworld.

It is a flat planet, supported on the backs of four elephants, who in turn stand on the back of the great turtle A'Tuin as it swims majestically through space. And it is quite possibly the funniest place in all of creation... Death comes to us all. When he came to Mort, he offered him a job. After being assured that being dead was not compulsory, Mort accepted.

However, he soon found that romantic longings did not mix easily with the responsibilities of being Death's apprentice. Terry Pratchett's hilarious fourth Discworld novel established once and for all that Death really is a laughing matter... Readers can't get enough of Mort:'This book was so good that if I knew the way to Sheepridge, I'd be heading there next Hogswatch Eve hoping to be chosen as DEATH's next apprentice . . . This book is laugh out loud, want to read the funny bit to someone (anyone) funny, it is witty, very witty, cleverly witty, it is deceptively simple, but wonderfully complex, an enigma, a dichotomy.

Oh ok it is bloody good and outrageously funny, just read it' Goodreads reviewer, 'This was the very first Discworld novel I've ever read . . . It became instantly dear to me, prompting me to immediately buy the English original and reading it once again, but I had almost forgotten just HOW GOOD this was.

After this re-read it is clear that it shall remain one of my all-time favourite books' Goodreads reviewer, 'The story itself is simple to follow, what makes this book so incredible is the fantastic descriptions of the way this universe works and the different realities and places and people . . . I didn't want to leave this world and I will definitely be returning soon!' Goodreads reviewer, 'The fourth Discworld novel is right up there with my favourites . . . it's fun to watch [Death] stretch his legs a little, witness Pratchett pushing the character in interesting and imaginative directions and without a shadow of a doubt the best conversations involve the grinning skeleton with the sparkle in his eye . . . If you're wondering where to start with the incredibly large body of work that makes up the Discworld then this is the one I suggest' Goodreads reviewer,
