Mort

Discworld: The Death Collection

(5)

It is known as the Discworld. It is a flat planet, supported on the backs of four elephants, who in turn stand on the back of the great turtle A'Tuin as it swims majestically through space. And it is quite possibly the funniest place in all of creation...

Death comes to us all. When he came to Mort, he offered him a job.

After being assured that being dead was not compulsory, Mort accepted. However, he soon found that romantic longings did not mix easily with the responsibilities of being Death's apprentice.

Terry Pratchett's hilarious fourth Discworld novel established once and for all that Death really is a laughing matter...

Portrait

Sir Terry Pratchett is a publishing phenomenon. Among his many prizes and citations are the World Fantasy Life Achievement Award, the Carnegie Medal, the BSFA Award, eight honorary doctorates and, of course, a knighthood. In 2012, he won a BAFTA for his documentary on the subject of assisted suicide, 'Terry Pratchett: Choosing to Die'. He is the author of fifty bestselling books but is best known for the globally renowned Discworld series.

The first Discworld novel, The Colour of Magic, was published in 1983, and the series is still going strong almost three decades later. Four Discworld novels - Hogfather, Going Postal, The Colour of Magic and The Light Fantastic - have been adapted for television, with more to follow. His books have sold approximately 85 million copies worldwide (but who's counting?), and been translated into thirty-seven languages.

In 2007, Terry Pratchett was diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer's Disease. He died in 2015.

„Being the Reaper Man's apprentice is not as easy as it sounds... “

Fabian Jacob, Thalia-Buchhandlung Soest

There comes a time in a young man's life, when he has to start contemplating what to with his future. So when young Mortimer is offered an apprenticeship (including free board and lodging) he decides to dive right in. However, there's a wee thing I should mention: his new boss is no other than Death himself.
What follows is the most unusual apprenticeship one has ever seen, gripping and hilarious alike! An absolute must for every Discworld fan...

Death as Pratchett writes him is one of my favourite literary characters of all time. Clever, funny and really weird!

Eines der besten Bücher aus der Scheibenweltreihe. Mort als "Lehrling" von Gevatter Tod ist einfach köstlich. Skurril? Ja, aber auch - wie immer bei Pratchett - aus dem Leben gegriffen und viele Fragen des Lebens philosophisch und mit einem Augenzwinkern bearbeitend.
