A bit of Pratchett

I've read quite a lot of Terry Pratchett over the years, but this is the first time I've blogged about him.
For those not in the know he wrote humorous fantasy set on a world that exists on the back of a giant turtle that is carried through space on the back of 4 elephants -Discworld. (A parody of Larry Niven's Ringworld perhaps?)
One of the recurring characters is Death, a quirky skeleton complete with scythe and who talks in CAPITALS.
Reaper Man is about him and how he gets to sort of retire,  and experience life as it were.
Quite bonkers and well worth a read!
