Title: Mort
Author: Terry Pratchett
Series: Discworld
Genre: Fantasy/ Comedy Fiction
Audience: Adult
Format: Kindle

From Goodreads: Death comes to us all.  When he came to Mort, he offered him a job.
After being assured that being dead was not compulsory, Mort accepted.  However, he soon found that romantic longings did not mix easily with the responsibilities of being Death's apprentice...

What I thought:  Death needs a break so he takes on an apprentice. No one can give Death more life than Pratchett. Mort is learning how to collect souls and what happens when he doesn't. Death meanwhile is off looking for himself and collecting cats. Throw in Death's old and very loyal servant, Alfred, his adopted daughter Ysabell and a princess that people are having trouble seeing and you get yet another classic, hilarious read.
