Review of 'Mort' on 'Storygraph'

3 stars

Most of this was fun and I had a good time, but there were too many random moments that took me out of the narrative with an off-putting comment that didn’t fit the rest of the story. Usually this took the place of treating the mention of someone’s fatness or the idea that they might be insane as if the observation of it was the whole joke. These moments were especially frustrating because so much of the rest of the humor is great. It’s paced well, the dynamic between DEATH and Mort was strange but interesting, and I liked the ending.

This was a great Discworld novel and I highly recommend it for newcomers to the series. The best part of the book is probably the character Death, who is very unique and surprising in this universe. The plot moves along quickly as well, making this a short, enjoyable read.

Review of 'Mort' on 'Goodreads'

5 stars

This is #4 in the Discworld series, and takes the recurring character of Death to the center stage. Death always makes an appearance in each Discworld novel, but this is the first (but not the last!) one in which he is a main character. We learn more about how Death does his job, where and how he lives, etc. He needs an apprentice and finds one in Mort. The problem though is that Mort is not satisfied to let everyone die on schedule and tries to change fate. This will of course go wrong in hilarious ways.

As before, I listened to the audiobook.
