    I have always been curious about Death DEATH. He speaks in capital letters - or at least he kind of speaks and the words appear in capitals on the page (apparently in reality), and of course he is really fond of cats and kittens (cute eh). What is not to like? Except from him being Death he isn't a bad sort of guy.

    One day Death chooses himself an apprentice, who goes by the name of Mort, someone who can be trained up in Deaths duties and then maybe even take over (and more besides). A very interesting plot and its great to be able to read about death and find his personality rather interesting and growing into a proper character. He seems to love food...and cooking.

    The story balances out his change or evolution of manner and personality since Pratchet's early books in which he would appear to simply take souls away form the living realm. The book includes a few familiar characters - if you have read a number of Pratchets books, and if not there will of course be introductions made. Well worth the read.

    Very fun, but it simply reveals how good the comedic timing is in the original. If you want a dramatic presentation, I think the best bet is listening to the audio book, which is very funny and wonderful.

    Mort is a fabulous book. It is not quite a classic Terry Pratchett -- more serious in a way, with fewer gags, a more formal fantasy tone, and a more subtle satire -- but it is one of his best. Mort introduces the title character, Mortimer or Mort, a hapless young space cadet whose own parents write him off as useless and send him to be an apprentice. When he is chosen by Death, though, he delves into a fantastical world of flying horses, takeout curry, and a strange kind of romance with Death's adopted daughter. Fabulous characters, as always: Death, so very fascinated with humans; Ysabell, his daughter, a skeptical, bossy, stubborn young woman braver than anyone; and Mort himself, who grows from a fumbling apprentice to a proper Death-in-training. He makes mistakes, but he works to rectify them and never backs down. A simply breathtaking character, a breathtaking plot, a breathtaking book.

    I've enjoyed most of Pratchett's quirky, satirical, fantasy books but I've enjoyed the ones with Death as one of the main characters the best. They are laugh out loud funny, especially if you listen to audiobook version. The reader is excellent. In fact, I recommend you listen to one on audiobook first. Once you hear it you'll understand my recommendation. Death has a unique voice and the reader puts it in your head nicely!

    A brilliant book that made me laugh and cry at Morts new life which had benefits and, as he learned, drawbacks. A quality, simple and at the same time intense story about an adopted boy whom death was his tutor.

    Although this book was definitely very interesting, I didn't understand who some of the characters where and what was happening at times in the story. One thing is for sure though, I'm really excited for middle school to be doing this play this year :)

    This was the first Discworld novel I read, and I hold a particularly soft spot for it. How many times have I read it? NO idea!

    Recommended by my 24 year old son. I have laughed aloud at everything I've ever read by Pratchett. I like and care about the characters and their hijinx are second to none.
