Publisher's Summary

Mort, like many teenagers, is gangly, unpromising, and struggling with a menial job - in his case, as Death's apprentice. He can barely handle his simple task of ushering souls out of Discworld, but he really screws up when he meets the beautiful Princess Keli, who is scheduled to be assassinated. Going against his boss's wishes, Mort kills Keli's assassin instead, which angers and interferes with Fate. But Mort's heroism seems to be for naught, since Discworld proceeds as though Keli had been killed, while Death has too much fun drinking and gambling to be any help. This is the fourth book in the Discworld series.

Quality of this recording is awful

What disappointed you about Mort?

This is a great story by Terry Pratchett, ably narrated by Nigel Planer but sounds as though it is coming from the bottom of a felt lined pit.

I listen to my books whist driving, and, with the lack of clarity in this recording, it is honestly almost too difficult to listen to.

it sounds as though this was converted from an old tape track with audio compression set to max. Not impressed, and as a result will steer clear of the other Pratchett books narrated by Mr Planer as well. Not because of how he reads, but because I might crash and die...


You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Nigel Planer's narration is good

Top story and lots of DEATH

I've always loved this story about DEATHS apprentice, but the sound quality of this recording isn't great.
