Mort  - Terry Pratchett

This book being the first book in the Death subseries, there is not enough Death in it. Instead we are following Mort, newly appointed apprentice to Death, who does a splendid job in messing up in reality, as far as reality can be messed with.


Unfortunately, Mort isn´t a character that I particularly liked or that I could root for. And all the other characters weren´t anything special either and the story wasn´t compelling or funny enough that I ended up loving this book.


Which leaves me with the best scene this book has to offer:





Death doing the polonaise, probably singing “Hier fliegen gleich die Löcher aus dem Käse, den nun geht sie los, unsere Polonäse.“ I couldn´t get that mental picture out of my head for the rest of the book.
