Soul Music
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.

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!

Lying in my bed feeling sick and and listening to Soul Music and (even though I've read it before) I've only JUST realised the joke behind everyone constantly asking Imp if he's elvish! 🤣🤣🤣

Moray_Reads @Trashcanman I've never actually thought about that! It seems that sound waves could only travel through space hundreds of thousands of years after the Big Bang. I suppose it depends on how you define sound! 2y

I absolutely love Terry Pratchett‘s Discworld novels and this one is probably my favourite. These books make me laugh out loud whenever I read them. Also, Death is one of my favourite characters- so endearing! I love this so very much 😍😍. I have a few of these beautiful hardcover editions, but not this one. It‘s very high on my wish list!

laurenbescoby Theres a Pratchett read along happening! We start the discworld novels next month. Ran by @TricksyTails under #ookbookclub 😄 2y

It's called Music With Rocks In 😄 and it was so so great. There were so many great puns about band names or song titles, although I possibly missed a lot of them 😇

IndyHannaJones This is such a beautiful cover. I tried to read this one before and felt like I didn't have enough knowledge of the universe to keep up. But if it looked like this I think I would've tried harder! 3y
Maike @Hyaeger I recommend reading the first two Discworld books, The Color of Magic and The Light Fantastic, to get some knowledge about the universe. After that you can read the rest in every order you like 😉 3y

Pratchett is just so clever with his references. This book firstly has the characters saying "We're on a mission from Glod ", and then there's this bit of hilarity referencing 'Wayne ' s World'.

Vansa Also the reference to Imp y Celyn, that translates to Bud y Holly. And the band with a singer called Crash who achieve fame by breaking their instruments 3y
Gezemice I absolutely loved those references! One of his best. 3y
Vansa I think so too!! I like my works of fiction to have clever references. 3y

Random tidbit: My mom's name is Susan and she has told me before how much she doesn't like her name. The really funny part about reading this passage though, the fact that my mom makes the best sandwiches, always keeps a level head in difficult situations, AND is definitely able to reliably look after other people's children 😂 Wonder if Terry had a Susan in his life too?

Stupid words.....But said, nonetheless. And if they're said with the right passion and the gods are feeling bored, sometimes the universe will re-form itself around words like that. Words have always had the power to change the world.
Be careful what you wish for....
Because, perhaps, something could be drifting through the universes, and a few words by the wrong person at the right moment may just cause it to veer in its course...
