    I didn t realise I was a month behind in my self imposed Discworld novel per month readathon, but apparently I was am That said as per usual it was a thoroughly enjoyable hilarious novel.I know I ve said it before, but this must be one of my favourite novels so far ha ha It has probably my favourite character, as in DEATH, although when I read books with The Witches, I love them, oh and of course The Night Watch, Oh blow it, all of them are just so different and so much fun.In this book, DEA I didn t realise I was a month behind in my self imposed Discworld novel per month readathon, but apparently I was am That said as per usual it was a thoroughly enjoyable hilarious novel.I know I ve said it before, but this must be one of my favourite novels so far ha ha It has probably my favourite character, as in DEATH, although when I read books with The Witches, I love them, oh and of course The Night Watch, Oh blow it, all of them are just so different and so much fun.In this book, DEATH goes a wandering, and his granddaughter , Susan, Is selected to take his place, by higher powers Tracked down by a talking Raven and the DEATH of RATS, she initially doesn t believe in anything supernatural Concurrently a harpist in Ankh Morpork, buys a guitar from a shop that never used to be there and its music magic makes its chords and riffs irresistible to all who hear it.CMOT Dibbler gets involved as a music Impresario and Susan as DEATH is also in the mix with most of the Senior Wizards from Unseen University, along with a number of Trolls as everything starts going completely wrong Step in Albert, DEATH s man , who realises this cannot be allowed to continue and goes in hunt of DEATH to sort the mess out.A wonderfully written Discworld novel, full of all the humour, pathos and characters that make the Discworld series what it is to so many avid followers

    Music is immortal Some say it has always been there and always will Some can apparently hear its beat Like the pulse of the universe itself I think Terry Pratchett had that same kind of appreciation for this particular art.In this 16th installment of the phenomenon that is the Discworld series, Death has a family related crisis so he goes away for a while Unlike the last time, there is someone to take over though and the Death of Rats and Binky are getting her Yes, HER Susan, Death s gran Music is immortal Some say it has always been there and always will Some can apparently hear its beat Like the pulse of the universe itself I think Terry Pratchett had that same kind of appreciation for this particular art.In this 16th installment of the phenomenon that is the Discworld series, Death has a family related crisis so he goes away for a while Unlike the last time, there is someone to take over though and the Death of Rats and Binky are getting her Yes, HER Susan, Death s granddaughter who is kinda blissfully unaware.As she learns to wield the scythe as much as her unique form of memory and everything inherited from her grandfather, music arrives on the Discworld in the form of a guitar bought in a peculiar shop think of the woodcarver shop in Pixar s Brave It wants to be played and not by anyone Thus, we are treated to a grande tour by some music with rocks in it.Along the way, we get a lot of musical references many of which even I understood is very proud of herself and which added to the hilarity of the absurdness unfolding in Ankh Morpork, the Unseen University and many other places Underwear being thrown onto the stage was the most innocent of the incidents snort giggles A wonderful adventure through dark alleys, in stinking taverns, along sharply winding roads and up on stages that is the introduction of one of the best characters, apparently Susan I already liked the novel with her future father way back when, but she s even better, especially when paired with a talking raven and the Death of Rats Binky is not to be underestimated either.Though I have to say that the Librarian, Ridcully and the other wizards were marvellous, once again, as well.Moreover, as is almost to be expected especially from the novels about Death, the author had a wonderful way of weaving pop culture references with action and, most impressively, resoundingly deep and important messages about life and death itself

    I re read this book slowly past few weeks.So slowly I even forgot to added it to GR.Sadly my initial opinion still remains This is the worst Discworld book I read but not worst Pratchett s book that title goes to Long earth.That doesn t mean it s bad book but it s way bellow sir Terry s best works.Death is my second favorite Discworld character first one being Sam Vimes but like in Thief of time him Susan ended in totally uninteresting plot with overall very weak cast of characters.Soul musi I re read this book slowly past few weeks.So slowly I even forgot to added it to GR.Sadly my initial opinion still remains This is the worst Discworld book I read but not worst Pratchett s book that title goes to Long earth.That doesn t mean it s bad book but it s way bellow sir Terry s best works.Death is my second favorite Discworld character first one being Sam Vimes but like in Thief of time him Susan ended in totally uninteresting plot with overall very weak cast of characters.Soul music has brief flashes of Pratchett s brilliance but it s not enough and I feel this re read was wasted time.TIme I should have spent reading or re reading better Discworld books


  8. Brooke Brooke says:

    I am convinced that Sir Pratchett wrote this book for the sole reason of putting in a grateful Death joke.It wasn t my favorite Discworld book, but the phrase Music With Rocks In is so charmingly Pratchett that I kind of wanted to hug it.


  9. Linda Linda says:

    Any Discworld that features Death is a winner in my book I love the addition of the raven, and Susan s journey as Death s granddaughter was an interesting one And of course all the musical references were pretty great.Audiobook narrated by Nigel Planer Thumbs up

    Part of the Pratchett reread with the SpecFic Buddy Reads group in 2018 Death takes a break at about the same time as the Discworld latches on to yet another passing concept from elsewhere in the multiverse Music with Rocks In Ankh Morpork gets hit hard by the arrival of some new musicians and soon the whole city can t get enough of the new music, particularly including some of the Unseen University faculty Meanwhile, with Death missing, the role is picked up by his young granddaughter, Susa Part of the Pratchett reread with the SpecFic Buddy Reads group in 2018 Death takes a break at about the same time as the Discworld latches on to yet another passing concept from elsewhere in the multiverse Music with Rocks In Ankh Morpork gets hit hard by the arrival of some new musicians and soon the whole city can t get enough of the new music, particularly including some of the Unseen University faculty Meanwhile, with Death missing, the role is picked up by his young granddaughter, Susan Sto Helit.In structure this book is very similar to Reaper Man, with two main plots that barely intersect There s the Wizards dealing with the new music including the first glimpse of what will later be called Hex and the band that is playing it, and a parallel plot dealing with Susan and Death and their grief over Susan s parents deaths.Like Reaper Man, the Death plot is the star, and while it has moments of humor the way that grief is affecting both of these characters is quite profound as is the relationship that they develop because of it.I do think that this is a slightly lesser work in the series, if only because the A plot is a bit pointless, and the B plot has the heavy lifting of introducing Susan I think the processing of grief that both Death and Susan are doing throughout is very subtle and extremely well handled
