This novel from the Discworld science fiction series isa fun combination of fantasy with modern-day allusions. The reader brings a distinctive style and rhythm that suits the tale. The dry humor and tongue-in-cheek asides play well in the audio format. MORT presents an unlikely hero, an apprentice to Death who is bewildered by the role of Death and Fate in history. Nigel Planer's descriptive characterization carries the plot forward in high fashion. As Mort develops from a timid and backward lad, his voice and manner of expression vividly demonstrate the changes taking place. J.E.M. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC/JAN 99]
