Death comes to us all. When he came to Mort, he offered him a job. After being assured that being dead was not compulsory, Mort accepted. However, he soon found that romantic longings did not mix easily with the responsibilities of being Death's apprentice...
A comical look at what it means to be human, the role of death in the world and how a job can become someone's life. As usual this discworld novel is full of wit and fun, as well as parodies of our own world. Extremly enjoyable!
