Reaper Man by Terry Pratchett

"No wonder the undead were traditionally considered to be very angry"

Hurrah for another outing to Discworld and what a delight this particular journey promised to be. Who, of those Pratchett readers out there, doesn't like Death - the guy's a scream - boom tish. This lively outing begins with death or rather the lack of it.
As previous visitors to Pratchett's other realm will know, a wizard must be met in person by DEATH at the end of his life - meeting your maker style. Yet, when Windle Poons' days expire it seems no one is available to meet him and well, his body just doesn't seem to be leaving for his final resting place.
Elsewhere Death has been fired and has taken work in a village as the unlikely named Bill Door. I'm thinking doors are more likely to slam shut for an overgrown skeleton, but fear not, adventure, mirth and merriment abound. Well the guy is handy with a scythe.

Thanks Nicki for the loan of this delightful book.
