Even among fan groups of the series where everyone has his or her own favorite characters, but many consider this the best book of the series. The wonderful moving and hilarious story of Death as he takes a holiday is an enchanting story that culminates in a wonderful climax that stays with you long after the book is done. Truly Discworld at is best.

My 9 year old got me into these Discworld book and we've listened to a pile of them by now. This has to be one of the all-time best. We laughed through the whole thing. (Thought I'd choke over the story of how One Man Bucket, the Indian ghost, got his name. Good thing my son didn't really get it! I've already told him he needs to re-read these when he's an adult.) These books are so funny on so many levels.

This is the best Discworld book ever - the first one I read and it had me in helpless laughter at times. The concept of Death going missing and the Bursar going 'Yo!' - priceless.
Nigel Planer is the only one that should read these books. His voices are brilliant.
