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.
Another Great Discworld book, Soul Music tells the story as rock and roll,(aka Music with Rocks In) through the lens that is the Discworld. This book is set in Ankh-Morpork, and has Death (and his Granddaughter Susan) as two of the main characters. A very fun read.
DEATH'S grand-daughter is recruited and the universe is never the same.
This book was great. I just love Terry Pratchett books. It was fun trying to figure out who all the musical references were to. I often found myself chuckling out loud when it would dawn on me who he was referring to.
When Susans dear old Granddad, the Grim Reaper himself, goes missing, Susan takes over the family business. The progeny of Death's adopted daughter and his apprentice, she shows real talent for the trade. That is until a little string in her heart goes "twang."
With a head full of dreams and a pocketful of lint, Imp the Bard lands in Ankh-Morpork, yearning to become a rock star. Determined to devote his life to music, the unlucky fellow soon finds that all his dreams are coming true. Well almost. It seems that you are not to play music for money unless you are in the guild and to join the guild it costs!!! So joined by Glod Glodsson the dwarf and Lias Bluestone the troll the three men create a band playing music with rocks in it!!!
Loved it, unreservedly. Up to Pterry's usual standard.
DiscWorld novels are tasty mind-candy.
"This is a story about Death's granddaughter, who inherited the job and grew to enjoy it until a little string in her heart went "twang."
and this is a story about Imp the bard, who went to the city of Ankh Morpork to make his fortune in a rock band, and who was so unlucky that all his dreams came true. Almost.
But most of all, this is a story about Sex and Drugs and Music With Rocks In It.
Well...one out of three ain't bad."
