In Terry Pratchett's Reaper Man, Death has left Discworld - but that's not necessarily a good thing. After all, chaos always ensues whenever important public services are withdrawn, and Discworld is no exception. Society is suddenly overrun by ghosts and poltergeists, while Dead Rights activist Reg Shoe finds himself busier than he's ever been and newly-deceased wizard Windle Poons rises from his coffin as a living corpse. Windle, Reg, and a band of Ankh-Morpork's undead citizens team up to try to save Discworld for the living. This novel, the eleventh in the Discworld series, is the sequel to Mort.

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Hamilton Goodman | 2/14/2014

    " My introduction to the Discworld series by Terry Pratchett. Death is forced into retirement by the Auditors of the Universe and has the time of his, for lack of a better word, life. Meanwhile, chaos reigns over the Discworld because the dead are caught between worlds with nobody to guide them into what comes next. Hilarious, with interesting bits of social commentary mixed in (true for most of the Discworld series.) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joy | 2/13/2014

    " A really strong Discworld novel--it finds an effective balance between humor and ideas. Though I will say that Death's storyline really carries most of the weight here: it's funnier, more emotionally engaging, and adds the best details to the series going forward. (view spoiler)[(After all, this is the book that introduces the Death of Rats!) (hide spoiler)] As for the rest, I didn't mind Windle Poon's plot, as the jokes about his undead experience kept me fairly amused, but I was a little bored by the antics of the other Unseen University characters. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andy Kegel | 2/7/2014

    " One of Pratchett's more philosophical novels, this story revolves around the end of death. Strange thing happen across several story lines, all related to Death's departure. Death - or rather, the absence of death - affects each character differently and Pratchett uses each of these situations to explore another aspect of death... and life. The humor is there as an undercurrent to keep away the morbid thoughts. Well done, Terry. "

    " The Discworld is thrown into chaos when DEATH is made to go on a leave of absence. Audio read by Nigel Planer. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Becca | 1/19/2014

    " One of my many favorite Discworld books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Benjamin | 1/11/2014

    " What does Death do when he gets fired? Read and find out. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Moira | 1/9/2014

    " I love DEATH - it cracks me up! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jc | 1/3/2014

    " Death and the Wizards both have adventures that make this one of the best of the early Discworld novels (#11). "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Patb1629 | 12/31/2013

    " Terry Pratchett at his best. Thoughtful, goofy, funny,and touching. Pratchett has an unequaled gift for setting up an absurd situation and following out its logical tentacles. A gem. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rachel Mecham | 12/14/2013

    " Makes references to Catcher in the Rye. Very funny. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Priscilla | 12/10/2013

    " I loved this one . . . Death is such an intersting character. His journey and eventual triumph is very rewarding. I highly recommend it! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melissa | 12/8/2013

    " A bit confusing, possibly because I jumped into the 11th book without any background. Very funny, excessively British, and pretty weird. I enjoyed it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ange | 11/10/2013

    " Death is such a fun character, and the humor was more than great. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 George Johnston | 10/19/2013

    " Marvellous,fantastic,wonderful,one of my favourite discworld novels.....anyone who is tired of Mr Ps versionh of DEATH is tired of life. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Vicki | 6/17/2013

    " Have I ever mentioned how Death is my favourite? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lance | 1/15/2013

    " Discworld's most popular character is back in the lead role. When Death takes a holiday, nobody really dies. This book also takes a swipe at commercialism. Introduces the "Death of Rats" character, which I actually like better than Death. Not one of the better Discworld books, but still a fun read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jason | 10/9/2012

    " A little more serious than some of the earlier works. Well written, but a little less fun. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andrea Barton | 9/27/2012

    " Death: a fantastic character :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alex | 9/11/2012

    " One of the best Discworld novels I've read yet, mainly because Death is such a great character. Typical Pratchett - very funny but with a melancholic edge. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brooke | 4/6/2011

    " I'd give this 3.5 stars if I could. As with all Discworld novels I've read, the parts that focused on Death were the best. I wasn't as thrilled with the wizards side of the plot, but then, the wizards have never been my favorite Discworld characters. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Loralee Knudsen | 12/30/2010

    " A new take on the whole what if the grim reaper took a few days off story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lorna | 11/12/2010

    " Bill Door is my hero. Funny funny! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Katie | 6/5/2010

    " One of my favourite Discworld books. The Death parts especially, but I've warmed up to the other parts as well. Death being Bill Door is funny and heartbreaking at the same time. I want to hug him. A wonderful book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Linda | 3/7/2010

    " Developing the character of Death in Mort and Reaper Man is great. It was great fun in this book seeing Death trying to be a "normal" person. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bonnie | 12/13/2009

    " This book contains a surprising heart in addition to the expected humor. Much enjoyed. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Aileen | 7/28/2009

    " you got to love Terry Pratchett "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jovana | 5/30/2009

    " My favorite Pratchet's book, so far... :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anthony | 4/11/2009

    " How can you not like Death?

    HOW, INDEED?

    I'm sorry, did someone say something?

    NEVER MIND. I'LL ONLY BE HERE A MOMENT.

    Oh, okay then. Anyway, as I was...erk... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jon | 2/3/2009

    " Probably a 3.5 stars, but I'm feeling generous today.

    I enjoyed the humor and the silliness churned out by Terry Pratchett in this Discworld novel. I also liked the philosophical wonderings of Death that resulted in a kinder, gentler Grim Reaper. "
