Synopsis : Young Mort despairs of finding a suitable career in his provincial village, until one day he is rather unexpectedly hired by a bony figure in a cowl Death, it seems, is in need of an apprentice. Introduced to the chilly truth behind the workings of the universe, the inherently curious Mort cannot help but meddle with the laws of time and space. The resulting chaos means all manner of trouble for the stability of reality, not to mention his burgeoning love life. Terry Pratchett wasnt simply a master of his genre, conjuring one of fictions strangest and most beloved fantasy realms in the form of the Discworld; he was also a master storyteller, and one of our greatest modern writers. In her introduction for this edition, A.
Byatt describes his maddening and delightful imagination, and how the core of his work always contained a reflection on the nature and language of things. Whether following the personification of Death to a curry house or threatening the great city of Ankh-Morpork with a dragon, Pratchetts focus was always on the humanity of his characters.He knew their passions, failings, hopes and desperations, revealing them with compassion and wisdom and if the truth bit a little close to home for the reader, a joke would be along at any moment to take away the sting. His gift has always been in treating the big subjects with the lightest touch and in smuggling huge banks of wisdom past unsuspecting, giggling readers : New Statesman Omar Rayyan, a long-time fan of the Discworld series, has provided 7 colour illustrations that capture the humour and vibrancy of Pratchetts remarkable creation.
