There are some moments of good humor and satire in this book, but not enough for my taste.
Book 16 in the series, Book 3 in the "Mort Track"
If you read the books it helps to follow the story in a linear fashion
by following the reading guides.
Another Great Pratchett Book: BEWARE!!! Begining this series is Highly Addictive, and has been determined to be habit forming by
Doctor Slime (who is not, or has not been yet known as the former or current Surgeon General of The United States of America, but may some day be appointed to such a position in Discworld.)
Typical Terry Pratchett, slow going at first, but ultimately a fine book. If you're a musician, you'll dig this one.
Pratchett made a world of fantasies the feels like real life. You can see wicthes and drawfs in the store as a matter of fact thing.
