Additional Notes/Review

I thought that Reaper Man was one of Pratchetts best novels to date. Death is one of my favourite characters and I cannot fault the way the story puts the spotlight on Death without focusing too hard and spoiling the plot.

Basically, the storyline goes that Death is given a lifetimer (see Mort) and so decides to spend his remaining grains of sand working on a farm with a Miss Flitworth. It is here that he starts to learn emotions that he never knew existed and began to live a human life. However, in the meantime, all chaos breaks loose when Windle Poons dies in Ankh-Morpork.

This is in my opinion the worst Discworld book I have read. It is absolutely wonderful nevertheless. Death's story is near perfect but the Windlepoons side was merely good.


Name: Kieron Rees  Rating: 4/5
I have only read four books in the series but contrary to a lot of peoples views I found this book ratheer good. although it seemed like the windle poons side was just to pad the book out, the two stories never really joined together like in the other books.
