(Disclaimer: I am likely one of the biggest Terry Pratchett fans on the Disc, so take the review in that context.) This is one of my favorite early stories of the Discworld, and I have read and listened to it several times over the years. Like "Sourcery" that follows in the series, it manages to give a detailed and fascinating introduction to the universe of Great A'Tuin, without you knowing that you're being lead on the journey. Mort's (and Death's) journeys of growth and enlightenment are just plain fun to experience. And, Nigel Planer is one of the best narrators I've ever heard. My only problem with this recording is that the "reverb" of Death's voice (used in future recordings) is missing.
Ms. Agyeman is one of my favorite companions of the Doctor, and she does a great job in bringing life to this quirky and interesting story (which starts a little slowly but picks up its pace quickly). However, I think "cheese and pineapple sticks" is embedded in my brain for eternity... :-)
