Soul Music | Terry Pratchett
OTHER CHILDREN GET GIVEN XYLOPHONES. SUSAN JUST HAD TO ASK HER GRANDFATHER TO TAKE HIS VEST OFF.Yes. There's a Death in the family.It's hard to grow up normally when Grandfather rides a white horse and wields a scythe - especially when you have to take over the family business, and everyone mistakes you for the Tooth Fairy. And especially when you have to face the new and addictive music that has entered Discworld.It's lawless. It changes people.It's called Music With Rocks In.It's got a beat and you can dance to it, but...It's alive.And it won't fade away.

Matter exploded into being, apparently as chaos, but in fact as a chord. The ultimate power chord. Everything, all together, streaming out in one huge rush that contained within itself, like reverse fossils, everything that it was going to be. And, zigzagging through the expanding cloud, alive, that first wild live music. This had shape. It had spin. It had rhythm. It had a beat, and you could dance to it. Everything did.” #musical #QuotsyJul21

Death must deal with grief and his granddaughter Susan is on the job in this Discworld novel that features a lot of funny music references. Imp vows to become the world‘s most famous musician, but the gods were listening and that dream is going to have some (guitar) strings attached. More fun from Pratchett! https://cannonballread.com/2021/01/soul-music-a-novel-of-discworld-elcicco/

Book 38

This is another one that just misses for me. It's fine? Nothing spectacular. I love the constant puns and since I lived for a while in the town where Buddy Holly played his last concert and then died in a plane crash, I appreciated that whole riff at the end.

Really there's nothing I can point to that I specifically don't like. I just feel very "Meh" about it as a whole.

Hey, listen, I‘m not going to complain about a book that gives me Death himself riding a motorcycle while wearing a leather jacket that says “Born to Rune”, but...

it kind of seemed like Discworld 16 was more a collection of fun ideas that Sir Terry had about rock n‘ roll on the Discworld, as opposed to an actual cohesive narrative.

Bud y Holly (get it?) was a nothing protagonist by design, but it was fun to meet Susan, Death‘s granddaughter.

julesG #OokBOokClub #SoulMusic 😉 it felt a bit disjointed, you're right. 2y

One of my favourite Pratchetts! ❤️🎵 So much fun, unforgettable characters and a story I couldn't get enough of. Sadly, at some point the book ended... 😧

This feels like a take 2 of Moving Pictures and I like it less. Susan and Buddy (and their relationship) never clicked for me. Some great Death stuff in the last 30 pages or so, but a lot of wheel spinning the rest of the time. Wizards liking rock, though? That's fun!

For an anthropomorphic personification, Death sure gets the blues and falls into an existential crisis fairly regularly. He needs to stop pulling these disappearing acts or untimely vacations, but then again he pulls them at just the right time so certain events can transpire... so meant to be and inevitable I guess.

This trope is wearing a bit thin for me, so not a favorite, but I did enjoy the Rock n‘ Roll puns, jokes, & tangential etcs

Time for some bad logic!
1) Wizards are like canaries in a coal mine for interdimensional weirdness
2) CMOT Dibbler gets swept up in every last interdimensional trend, therefore
3) Despite all odds, Throat missed his true calling as a wizard

I want to say something nice! I quite liked the trip to see Mort-era Death, and get a sense of how we got from that sort of scarier Death to the one we have (he's always been a mess, really). I also really like the running bit that Glod is ~terrible~ at haggling.

@TricksyTails

amber_ldsmom Hey there! I think my favorite character in this one is Ridcully. I‘ve never really given him much thought in the other books I‘ve read, so it was kind of funny that I just kind of loved him in this one. Anyone else enjoy Ridcully? Who was your favorite character? 2y

julesG @amber_ldsmom Ridcully was great. And I loved Death's "midlife" crisis. 2y

amber_ldsmom @DrexEdit Oh, I loved the organ scene! That was great! 2y
gossamerchild Am I being unfair by saying that Susan drove me crazy? 😆😆. 2y
julesG @gossamerchild No, not crazy at all. Very annoying teenager. 😬 2y
gossamerchild @julesG true 😆 2y
khooliha Can't believe there are 2 books where teens new to reaping try to tell Death his business! This trope is really grating on this reread. 2y
khooliha @amber_ldsmom Ridcully is really lovely in this one! I like how Pratchett keeps putting him in pretty different contexts, ones we don't see the other wizards in. They would ignore a deeply occult teen girl, to be sure. 2y
amber_ldsmom @khooliha I agree! 👏🏻 2y
julesG @khooliha Just a hundred years ago teens like Mort would start an apprenticeship. And at one point every apprentice in history thought they knew how the job could be done better and told their masters. I think it's just grating because it happens to DEATH. 2y

“The #Library didn‘t only contain magical books...which are chained to their shelves and are very dangerous. It also contained perfectly ordinary books, printed on commonplace paper in mundane ink. It would be a mistake to think that they weren‘t also dangerous, just because reading them didn‘t make fireworks go off in the sky. Reading them sometimes did the more dangerous trick of making fireworks go off in the privacy of the reader‘s brain.”

Read this as a part of #OokBOOkClub The story is about a musician, Imp Y Celyn(Buddy) and his band, and death‘s granddaughter, Susan who is taking over the responsibilities as her grandfather is taking a break. The story is hailstorms in certain sections and Death is awesome. Enjoyed the machinations if the band‘s manger, Dibbler, and the wizards of the Unseen University. Lot of action, not much description.

jmtrivera My goal is to catch up with the club some time this year! 2y
julesG @jmtrivera I can highly recommend the Audiobooks. I tend to listen to them while cooking. 2y
Iblu I have grown fond of the videos of an American YouTuber reading the whole Discworld series. I found him entertaining with his asides and emotional readings. I understand he got commissioned for producing the video of each part of any book, but they are now freely available on his YouTube channel. What about royalties to the author though? Am I right in feeling guilty about this way of listening to audiobooks? 2y
julesG @Iblu I understand that you are worried about this. I just think if there were any problems with copyright and royalties, they would have taken it off YouTube by now. I, unfortunately, can't listen to this nice fellow. He's doing a great job, but I just love the British version read by Nigel Planer (sp?). 2y

My first Terry Pratchett and definitely not the last! A funny and absurd satire of the music industry and mythologizing of celebrity and a sweet parable on Death and love.

I loved this Discworld novel about Music with Rocks In.

A mystical guitar bought in an alley shop takes three unsuspecting musicians on a crazy ride, as they invent the Disc‘s version of rock music.

Death and his granddaughter Susan feature in this one, as well as Ridcully and the wizards, Dibbler, and many new characters. Super fun!
