Review: Soul Music by Terry Pratchett

spoilers

Pratchett comes through again with this Discworld look at the music industry. A dwarf and imp and a troll walk into the Music Guild and walk out a band. Death’s granddaughter Susan is forced to take over for him when Death disappears. This is our first glimpse of the young Susan, a completely rational young woman forced to confront the irrational. A mysterious shop opens just in time to replace a harp with a magical guitar. Wizards start wearing leather. A sausage vendor becomes a band manager and Ankh-Morpork has it’s first free rock and roll concert.

As always Pratchett manages to put a wonderful twist on Discworld’s interpretation of the real world. Definitely a fun read.
