    From Terry Pratchett's famed Discworld series. 14-year-old Eric is the first ever demonology hacker. Fortunately, he doesn't succeed in raising any devils, but he does raise Rincewind (the most incompetent wizard in the universe) and the Luggage (the world's most dangerous travel accessory).

    Would you consider the audio edition of Eric to be better than the print version?

    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.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Terry Pratchett? Why or why not?

    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.


    Which character – as performed by Stephen Briggs – was your favorite?

    Rincewind was my favorite as Stephen Briggs always portrays him true to himself and familiar.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    Where does Mort rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    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.


    What other book might you compare Mort to and why?

    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.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I enjoyed the scene where one of Mort's first clients walks him through the process of collecting a soul.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    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'.


    Any additional comments?

    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.
