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 After all, chaos always ensues whenever important public services are withdrawn, and Discworld is no exception.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.

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by 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.) "

    " 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. "

    " 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. "
