Summary

In Terry Pratchett's Reaper Man, Death has left Discworld - but that's not necessarily a good thing. After all, chaos always ensues whenever important public services are withdrawn, and Discworld is no exception. Society is suddenly overrun by ghosts and poltergeists, while Dead Rights activist Reg Shoe finds himself busier than he's ever been and newly-deceased wizard Windle Poons rises from his coffin as a living corpse. Windle, Reg, and a band of Ankh-Morpork's undead citizens team up to try to save Discworld for the living. This novel, the eleventh in the Discworld series, is the sequel to Mort.

A perfect Halloween listen.

Sir Terry Pratchett writes like no one else. His humour cackles from each chapter, infecting the listener, and before long, you too are a giggling zombie...
He has this wonderful ability to layer hidden references as he has in "Reaper Man".

Zombies, ghouls, vampires are all in here, giving it a spooky Halloween theme sitting alongside the main plot line. This book is a fantastic follow up to DEATH's story revealing more about his companions: Death of Rats and Albert.

In case you are new to the series, I would recommend to read "Mort" prior to this one, otherwise go for it, listen, read, swallow and enjoy!

It was a great choice for our holiday and made our long drives through Scottish Highlands a pure joy.

Nigel Planer's narration is of the highest calibre. It's amazing how he's able to give each character a personality which you start recognising as you read more and more books in the series. He gives an outstanding performance which is a wonderful addition to an already well-written book and makes "Reaper Man" another perfect listen.

One of the most moving of the Discworld book

Any additional comments?

This was one of the first Discworld books I read, and it's a very moving book, as well as being as funny and quirky as you'd expect from Discworld. It's the one that confirmed me as a fan and made me want to get hold of every Discworld books available at the time.

Though I prefer the Stephen Briggs narrations, Nigel Planer is excellent too.

Finally available in North America

Quite a lot of the Discworld books were only availabe in abridged versions in north america. Was very very happy to see that has been remedied. I enjoyed Reaper Man very much, both the story itself and the Narration by Nigel Planer, whom I have found to be excellent reading these stories. I'm going to be using a lot of credits now....

The death of rats

A brilliant embroidery of different stories that weave together to creates a brilliant tale. "SQUEAK"
