Description

"Pratchett's Discworld yarns . . . are comic masterpieces. This one, unfailingly amusing and sometimes hysterically funny, is recommended for anyone with the slightest trace of a sense of humor." — Kirkus Reviews

The sixteenth novel in the Discworld series from New York Times bestselling author Terry Pratchett —  in which Death's granddaughter Susan must take over the family business.

When her dear old Granddad— the Grim Reaper himself—goes missing, Susan takes over the family business. The progeny of Death's adopted daughter and his apprentice, she shows real talent for the trade. That is, until a little string in her heart goes "twang."

With a head full of dreams and a pocketful of lint, Imp the Bard lands in Ankh-Morpork, yearning to become a rock star. Determined to devote his life to music, the unlucky fellow soon finds that all his dreams are coming true. Well almost.

The Discworld novels can be read in any order, but Soul Music is the third book in the Death series and the sixteenth book in the Discworld series. The Death collection includes:

    I've been reading Terry Pratchett for over a decade now. I recently started buying iBooks for touring. Evidently, this one was typed by a blind man using a mallet.

    I've read this book a number of times in paperback before and it is one my favorites. Terry Pratchett is wonderful as usual. But this electronic edition is full of typos and words stuck together. As the previous reviewer said, it is very distracting and, for me, disappointing. I am also not sure why I don't see the footnotes, which are a big part of Pratchett's books. Great book, not a well done edition.
  • Ebook transfer issues

    Pratchett as usual does a smashing job entertaining the reader. However this ebook transfer has lots of errors in spelling (suspect OCR issues) and spacing. It is a little distracting, but the joy of getting Pratchett on ebook surpasses the little annoyance. But if this affects your reading pleasure, you may wish to consider.
