Reaper Man by Terry Pratchett (A Review)

Death is Missing- Presumed..... Er...... Gone. Which leads to the kind of chaos you always get when an important public service is withdrawn. Meanwhile, on a little farm far, far, away, a tall dark stranger is turning out to be really good with a scythe. There's a harvest to be gathered in....

My review:
Discworld at its weirdest (or, possibly, almost). This book explores the meaning and purpose of both life and death in a hilarious fashion. Eternal life isn't all its hooked up to be! Recommended for all, especially those already immersed in Terry Pratchett's flat-world.

Action Reader's Action: Consider what services you use every day. Take some time to say thankyou next time you see the garbage man, postman, or other public service worker.

If you've read any of the Discworld series, then I'd like to know which is your favourite Death quote?

Have you ever had a public service withdrawn? What effect did it have on your life? I'd love it if you'd share your story in the comments.
