Publisher's Summary

"Although the scythe isn't pre-eminent among the weapons of war, anyone who has been on the wrong end of, say, a peasants' revolt will know that in skilled hands it is fearsome." For Mort however, it is about to become one of the tools of his trade. Henceforth, Death is no longer going to be the end, merely the means to an end. He has received an offer he can't refuse. As Death's apprentice, he'll have free board and use of the company horse. And being dead isn't compulsory. It's a dream job - until he discovers that it can be a love-life killer.

there is no justice

I love this book, short but sweet.
narrator did a mostly good job, but I'd say the voice he used for death was a little to over the top for me.

Didn't realise this was the abridged version

Not realising it was the shortened version is my own fault of course but it meant that I feel like I wasted a credit. I was interested to hear Tony Robinson reading this book (as opposed to Nigel Planer who has done the others I've listened to), and I like the quirkiness but Death isn't booming enough for my liking. I like the portrayal of Mort though.

Mort

This is one of my favourite Terry Pratchett books. Tony Robinson’s narration is brilliant, recording not the best quality. Death getting drunk? Who’d have thought it.
