I can't decide why I do not like this book more than I do. As with the other Discworld novels, Pratchett's signature humor and flippant style are present in this book; however, the characters aren't likable or relate-able to me, and the plot is a bit confusing. It reads a bit like Douglas Adams on crack, but not the amazing "look at the colors" kind. More so the, "what the hell is going on, guys?" variety. (Disclaimer: I've never done crack. Crackheads, help me out with the validity, please?).

In addition, I liked the character of Death more in the previous books than I do here. Like many people you know in real life, this character is best when served in small doses.

I'm not giving up on Pratchett. Yet. 'BUT THE HOURGLASS IS DWINDLING,' as Death would say. Well, not say, really. More like intone in his disembodied telepathy.
