Mort (Discworld, #4; Death, #1) by Terry Pratchett

Into the Wild

Mort (Discworld, #4; Death, #1) Read Online Free - Terry Pratchett's profoundly irreverent novels are consistent number one bestseller in England, where they have catapulted him into the highest echelons of parody next to Mark Twain, Kurt Vonnegut, Douglas Adams, and Carl Hiaasen.

In this Discworld installment, Death comes to Mort with an offer he can't refuse -- especially since being, well, dead isn't compulsory. As Death's apprentice, he'll have free board and lodging, use of the company horse, and he won't need time off for family funerals. The position is everything Mort thought he'd ever wanted, until he discovers that this perfect job can be a killer on his love life.

I have a new best friend. Literarily speaking. It’s as though I met Terry Pratchett at a party and we hit it off immediately. You like Monty Python, I LOVE Monty Python! Seinfeld, WHAT???, I’ve seen them all “Art Vandelay, nice to meet you.” No way! What about The Big Lebowsky? “How’s the smut bus...

Being one of the first and the latest of all the Pratchett reads, I'm really surprised just how much I loved this one. I'm upping the star count to a full five just because I think I liked Mort, the character, even better this time around. DEATH on DISCWORLD. :) Seriously, there's nothing quite li...

This isn't an easy review to write. This has been my first encounter with the Discworld universe and the many writings of Terry Pratchett, and voicing my opinion on it makes me feel like a blundering fool stumbling into a world that was meant for his younger and perhaps wiser self, a world of whi...

Introducing: DEATH Aw, ain't that smile warming your heart? Or is that the adrenaline rush because you, too, just want to get away from him? Severely misunderstood guy, that fellow. He's a beekeeper, a gardener, cat-lover, admittedly not very good with colours but his shades of black are very origi...

Bez iznenadjenja: čitati Pračeta po prvi put je nalik na upoznavanje starog, dragog prijatelja. Prijateljstvo je već tu, veliko je i puno obećava, samo eto, igrom slučaja nijedan ni drugi niste o tome bili obavešteni. p.s. izdanje koje imam je toliko divno da je teško gledati ga bez lekova za smir...

Unfortunately the young lady’s time is up. So that’s that. Or is it? You see, Mort is not so good at following rules… This is t...

"I DON'T KNOW ABOUT YOU, BUT I COULD MURDER A CURRY.” With those simple words Terry Pratchett introduces the complicated fact that on The Disc Death is as much a person as anyone else, only more so. The fourth Discworld novel is right up there with my favourites, the story of how Death came to take...

I "made a mistake" in my life by reading later works of Discworld (DW) first. By the time I read earliest Discworld stories, the universe feels not fully developed. Mort is the fourth DW novel, and I see the DW universe, the jokes, and the characters are better developed than the 3 earlier novels...

In a previous review of Pratchett's The Color of Magic, I speculated that I might have become jaded since high school. I noted that I enjoyed that book, but it was not as hilarious as I had remembered it, initially. There will be no such danger with Mort, meaning, I probably won't be re-reading i...

Executive Summary: Another great entry in the Discworld series as different from Equal Rites as that book was from the first two. Full Review I never expected to marathon the discworld books, but this now makes the third in a row I've read. This book is the first of the Death books. Death plays a...
