Reaper Man Death Has To Happen That S What Bein Alive Is All About You Re Alive, And Then You Re Dead It Can T Just Stop Happening But It Can And It Has So What Happens After Death Is Now Less Of A Philosophical Question Than A Question Of Actual Reality On The Disc, As Here, They Need Death If Death Doesn T Come For You, Then What Are You Supposed To Do In The Meantime You Can T Have The Undead Wandering About Like Lost Souls There S No Telling What Might Happen, Particularly When They Discover That Life Really Is Only For The Living If I could steal credit for a book and claim it as my own, Reaper Man would most likely be it This is the point, I think, where the Discworld novels stopped being entertaining light reading, and really became literature It s a very subtle shift from the

to the rich satire of a book like Jingo Behind the story of Death being fired for having developed a personality, there s a clever little parable about what it means to be human, to be alive, and why the man locked in the tower watched the flight of birds The second DEATH is as hilarious as the first one, this time positioning the friendly reaper in a perfect setting for having philosophical and deep thoughts about human nature and life in general.The auditors are a mixture of bureaucracy, monotony, surveillance, and total order, each reader might find a subjective real life example for higher, creativity and life hating entities mostly interested in controlling everything, not even trusting each other, and hating generally anything different, ne The second DEATH is as hilarious as the first one, this time positioning the friendly reaper in a perfect setting for having philosophical and deep thoughts about human nature and life in general.The auditors are a mixture of bureaucracy, monotony, surveillance, and total order, each reader might find a subjective real life example for higher, creativity and life hating entities mostly interested in controlling everything, not even trusting each other, and hating generally anything different, new, or progressive The way the are used in the DEATH novels is a good alternative theory for the real foundations of the physical laws, the universe, and anything, so string theory, behold and be aware As I always say, I do know far too little about philosophy and mythology to get all the innuendos, inspirations, and connotations Pratchett is certainly using and many readers may find farsubtle, hidden, easter eggs than just the superficial humor I am able to identify.Shopping centers and consumerism, or in this case interdimensional city parasite malls, went a far way and evolution, similar to mallmargeddons in real life that became the last stage of an uncertain development since Pratchett wrote this one and it would be interesting to know how he would have satirized the big malls and megastores first eating away the rest of the food chain to finally be cannibalized by online trade view spoiler I especially like the allegory of out of control superficial nihilistic money throwing temples detected by incompetent wizards of Unseen University hide spoiler I will highly subjectively and subliminally interpret is as out of control predator neoliberal capitalism randomly detected by ivory towers humanities who are unable to deal with a creature some of them helped constructing And buy my stuff mostly online, because it s so cheap, of course, hypocritical as I am, but organic at least But it could also be seen as the warning of natural disaster or environmental destruction by scientists with not enough data, the impending doom of the manipulation of the laws of physics by science detected by science itself, etc As always in Pratchett s works, there are manifold ways to widen one s horizon with the mind penetrating subtility he offers.Prepare for an example why the causality and paths of the universe shouldn t be manipulated and what happens if DEATH doesn t do his job any, such as zombie view spoiler rights groups suddenly findingsupport and members hide spoiler I guess I should watch the movie Repo man, or read the script, to getof the hidden humor related to the pun, although I don t know if there are really elements of it in the novel, as I haven t seen it Tricky.Tropes show how literature is conceptualized and created and which mixture of elements makes works and genres unique one is added to all Pratchettian reviews The idea of the dissected motifs rocks, highlighting the main real world inspirational elements of fiction and satire is something usually done with so called higher literature, but a muchinteresting field in readable literature, as it offers the joy of reading, subtle criticism, and feeling smart all together How can you not like Death HOW, INDEED I m sorry, did someone say something NEVER MIND I LL ONLY BE HERE A MOMENT.Oh, okay then Anyway, as I waserk Probably my favorite of all of the Discworld novels and that s a hard choice, given my total love of the series Of all of Pratchett s many quirky characters, I think I love Death the best, though I couldn t begin to tell you why In this installment, Death gets fired and has to get a day job In typical Discworld fashion, not everything goes according to plan.Don t pay attention to the critics quotes on the front of the book Anyone who compares Pratchett to

pay attention to the critics quotes on the front of the book Anyone who compares Pratchett to Tolkien or Douglas Adams hasn t actually read any of the three It might be better to compare him to Jonathan Swift or Mark Twain in spite of the dwarves, wizards, witches, werewolves, and other fantastic characters, Pratchett s novels area commentary on human nature society than high fantasy Great fun
