book 4 in the discworld series takes us into the world of death. Death has a nice comfortable place in... well, not sure exactly where it is. But he has a nice but rather rebellious daughter (adopted -not having flesh makes procreation hard), he has an effective assistant, and then he brings on an apprentice. Mort the apprentice ends up turning deaths world upside down.

Still very funny, but I am getting used to the off the wall british humor. Must say I like this much more than Hitchhikers guide series. Pratchet knows how to to extremes to the appropriate limit, and how to fit them to personalities. Rincewind makes a cameo appearance, and there are numerous excursions to different parts of discworld in the daily humdrum existence of harvesting the human souls according to their hourglass date of expiration
