Soubhiville I LOVE this book! It‘s one of my favorite Discworld novels. I love the idea that even Death can get burned out and need a change of pace. I love his slow vacation time in a quiet town, farming among country folks. I love him dancing. There‘s a quote near the end about one‘s life not fading away as long as we‘re remembered. (I‘ll look it up and post later- my Discworld are in the bedroom and the Mr is still sleeping 😴) 1w
julesG @Soubhiville I ❤️ everything you just wrote about this book. It's one of my favourite too. 1w
Soubhiville @julesG I‘m also a huge fan of the Death of Rats. I have him on a tee shirt. 🖤🐀💀 1w

Aimeesue I adore DEATH. He's one of my favorite DW characters. This book in particular does a lovely job of placing him in contrast to people, which is one of the great things about sci-fi/fantasy - showing us what it means to be human. One of the reasons I love these books so much. (edited) 1w
Aimeesue @Soubhiville The Death of Rats! SQUEAK 1w
Soubhiville “In the Ramtop village, where they dance the real Morris dance, for example, they believe that no-one is finally dead until the ripples they cause in the world die away- until the clock he wound winds down, until the wine she made has finished its ferment, until the crop they planted is harvested. The span of someone‘s life, they say, is only the core of their existence.” @julesG @Aimeesue 1w
Soubhiville ⬆️ one of my favorite quotes of all time. ❤️ 1w
khooliha I read this one out of step with the readathon on accident, and even a month later the Death stuff stands out way more than the Windle Poons part. I wish it were more about Bill Door - that's where the most interesting stuff is. 1w
gossamerchild I do t have much to say about this book, because I agree with everyone 😂😁. This is a fantastic book, and I love that quote. 1w
julesG @Soubhiville 👏👏👏it's a great quote! 1w
Aimeesue @Soubhiville One of my favorite quotes as well. And that's the one that Pratchett fans clung to after Sir Terry's death - that he goes on as long as the electronic clacks (wwweb) exists and we keep mentioning his name. ❤️❤️❤️ (edited) 1w
Soubhiville @Aimeesue 💜💜💜 forever in our hearts. 1w
Chrys I am finding that I only get into the Discworld books that feature either Death, Witches and/or Wizards. So this one was a pick for me whereas I had struggled with Guards Guards and Pyramids. I am adding the Death of Rats and the Death of Fleas to my list of favorites in Pratchett‘s works. 1w
Gezemice @Soubhiville @julesG I loved this one, too. And yes,the Death of Rats is a favorite of mine :) @aimeesue (edited) 2d
Gezemice @khooliha I agree, Bill Door was the best part of the story. I did not mind Windle Poons and the bumbling wizards, but the shopping cart story was blah. 2d
hgrimes @khooliha I also could have done without the Windle Poons storyline. I just want Death all the time! 2d

I feel like I haven‘t read a Pratchett in months... because I haven‘t! These are all unavailable through both libraries I‘m a member of. Someday I‘d like to resume #OokBOokClub. 😒
