“Much like Equal Rites, Mort deals with the subject of apprenticeship, but it does it in a fairly different way. The eponymous character, Mort, is a clumsy but earnest young lad who is unsuited for just about any job his well meaning father can find for him. At a hiring fair, Mort's potential...”see full review » see other reviews »

“This is the second Disc World book I have listened to since I started tracking here. I really enjoy Pratchett's books; they are especially good as audiobooks. His fantasy world is fun and unlike any other world I have visited.
In this tale, Death takes an apprentice and mayhem ensues. I don't want to give away the plot, but if you like books with ridiculous story lines, with laugh out loud impossibilities and happy endings, you should be reading Pratchett. I am so happy that there are lots of Disc World books ahead of me.”

“Mort by Terry Pratchett is the story of a young boy who becomes an apprentice to Death. There comes a time when Death wants to take a bit of time off and leaves Mort in charge of his duties, but things don't go quite according to plan. In some ways the story reminds me of The Sorcerer's Apprentice from Disney's Fantasia. This book is very humorous both in plot and in imagery and I especially love the comedic footnotes. I'd recommend this book to anyone who has enjoyed other books in the Discworld series or anyone who enjoys British style humor.”Kythe42 wrote this review Wednesday, October 9, 2013.

“Mort thinks too much. It's a problem for him. He's also all knees and elbows, which is rather awkward. Things are about to change a great deal for Mort - he becomes apprenticed to Death. Yes, that Death.
Another fun Discworld novel.”

“This was a good book, my brother has the entire collection of terry pratchett books so I have access to all of them. I wouldn't say I adore Terry Pratchett I know he is a good writer but some of his books I find difficult to get along with, which is a shame but sometimes his style of writing just doesn't work for me. But this book was a fun one to read that did hold my attention right until the very end!”Jess B wrote this review Wednesday, April 24, 2013. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
