This was the first Discworld book I ever read, and I was hooked. The concept of Death as a fairly benign character with a personality is definitely "outside the box". I love the wizards, behaving like small children (Yo!), and the inanimate things that actually have life (musn't spoil it). Pratchett is a genius that brings his own unique brand of humour, and razor-sharp insight into the human condition to a genuinely entertaining read. You can belly laugh on one page, then groan at a truly awful pun on the next page.
Nigel Planer is the best reader (his Death voice - just right). I look forward to reading/listening again and again.
