As always, Pratchetts Discworld novels are unfailingly entertaining. In Mort, Pratchett introduces his personification of Death. However, the familiar hooded, skeletal figure with a sickle is getting kind of bored with rushing about from deathbed to murder scene The solution? To take on an apprentice. Mort is an awkward, clumsy farmers son, whose inconvenient habit of asking questions has made him more in-the-way than not at home and hes had no luck finding a position elsewhere. So when Death shows up and offers him the job, he thinks it might be interesting. However, when his very first job involves the destined assassination of a beautiful princess, his humanity (and love at first sight) could have disastrous consequences.
