Yo!

Sometimes death becomes a man. Reaping the harvest. And sometimes existence prolongs when death gets out of job, allowing the span of someone's life, which is is only the core of somebody's real existence, to extend, allowing for more and more ripples.

What Can The Harvest Hope For?

5 stars

Reaper Man was the first Discworld novel I ever read, and one of the ones I have read the most often, but I haven't read it since either my mother or Sir Pterry died.

It was good to read it again, after having known the grief of losing mom. Comforting. Such insight into death, and Death, and what it means to know that life has to come to an end. This remains one of my favorite Discworld Novels, and it is unquestionably one of the most profound.

But Terry always delivered even the hard lessons with a nice dose of laughter.

Review of 'Reaper Man' on 'Goodreads'

4 stars

Terry Pratchett's books are always fun and clever. The most hilarious scenes in Reaper Man involve the wizards, in their attempts to help their dead--or, undead- fellow wizard Windle Poons. Why? Because DEATH is being forced to retire, and there are immediate problems in Discworld without him. Not to worry, though, things always come right in the end, and Windle even makes some interesting friends and has the time of his life--or unlife. Whatever. Even DEATH get to live a little! And after the laughter, there is always a touch of wisdom.
