This is my first Pratchett book. I have been recommended to read (in this case listen to) Terry Pratchett from several people. Now I got started.
Mort is a story in the Disc World series. (Audio book).
Mort, a young boy is searching for an apprenticeship, as he is at the coming-of-age stage in his life. There is a special day for that in his society. All of the day passes, and he still has not found it. Just before the end of the day, he is approached by an odd looking person. Yes, it turns out to be Death, wanting an apprentice.
Of course, not everything is as expected, Death has a daughter, and an assistant. After a while Mort is sent out to do Death’s work, and, of course his humanity is getting in the way.
In the end, he actually does get a second chance for life.
I like the quirky humour of Pratchett, it is not hilarious, making me laugh out loud, but it often gives me a chuckle.
I do want to get a bit more into Pratchett’s work, given the time to do it, and I will rate Mort at:
