Mort is a good middle entry in the list of audiobooks I've listened to so far - and most of my books are Discworld novels.
To me, Mort was similar to Small Gods because you have the young male protagonist finding his place in the world through awkward, madcap and often moving adventures.
I enjoyed the scene where one of Mort's first clients walks him through the process of collecting a soul.
As always in the books featuring Death and his associates, I find Terry Pratchett's handling of the process of death to be sensible, thought provoking and dignified - for a given value of 'dignified'.
I'm working my way through the series - in no particular order and many re-reads or -listens. I love evey story for the value it brings to the whole; for the way it can stand on it's own; for the way they make me laugh, cry and think. Fortunately, I still have several to go and I wish the series would never end.
I have not read Eric - I've only listened to the audiobook. A couple of times I did think it would be helpful to me to be able to 'flip back' and check a description or bit of dialog.
Always! I love the Discworld and have about half of the books on audio. I always enjoy a look at the world through Terry's Pratchett's eyes.
Rincewind was my favorite as Stephen Briggs always portrays him true to himself and familiar.
This was a short installment in the series and seems like an earlier run at some of the world building books Terry Pratchett wrote after this. That said, it was, as always, an enjoyable twist on some familiar material: the Trojan War, the Odessy, the circles of Hell, creation, etc.
