    Sex, drugs and rock and roll in the Discworld.Except there s really not any sex to speak of, and to be honest really not any drugs either.But 1 out of three ain t bad, er, well, I guess that s 33 percent, so really not that good but But in Sir Terry Pratchett s able writing, it is good, as the Discworld experiences rock and roll or actually, Music with Rocks In as performed by The Band with Rocks In.Imp Y Celyn which literally means bud of holly, calls himself Buddy, and his band mates Glod as in on a mission from Glod and their troll drummer Cliff set out to hit the big stage of Ankh Morpork and things get bigger than they ever imagined as Buddy finds a magical, mystical guitar that takes over and makes things interesting.Checklist of Discworld characters Death checkThe Librarian checkCut me own throat Dibbler checkThe Wizardly staff at Unseen University checkSusan checkSgt Colon and Corporal Nobbs checkAnd a host of other fun folks who inhabit Pratchett s Discworld Most of the action takes place in Ankh Morpork but the Band also goes on tour As in most of Pratchett s work, this is also a satire on a great many things, most notably here commercialism, music industry, art and music, and human nature.Fun, fun, fun.

    Music is immortal Some say it has always been there and always will Some can apparently hear its beat Like the pulse of the universe itself I think Terry Pratchett had that same kind of appreciation for this particular art.In this 16th installment of the phenomenon that is the Discworld series, Death has a family related crisis so he goes away for a while Unlike the last time, there is someone to take over though and the Death of Rats and Binky are getting her Yes, HER Susan, Death s granddaughter who is kinda blissfully unaware.As she learns to wield the scythe as much as her unique form of memory and everything inherited from her grandfather, music arrives on the Discworld in the form of a guitar bought in a peculiar shop think of the woodcarver shop in Pixar s Brave It wants to be played and not by anyone Thus, we are treated to a grande tour by some music with rocks in it.Along the way, we get a lot of musical references many of which even I understood is very proud of herself and which added to the hilarity of the absurdness unfolding in Ankh Morpork, the Unseen University and many other places Underwear being thrown onto the stage was the most innocent of the incidents snort giggles A wonderful adventure through dark alleys, in stinking taverns, along sharply winding roads and up on stages that is the introduction of one of the best characters, apparently Susan I already liked the novel with her future father way back when, but she s even better, especially when paired with a talking raven and the Death of Rats Binky is not to be underestimated either.Though I have to say that the Librarian, Ridcully and the other wizards were marvellous, once again, as well.Moreover, as is almost to be expected especially from the novels about Death, the author had a wonderful way of weaving pop culture references with action and, most impressively, resoundingly deep and important messages about life and death itself.

    A very nice re read 9 13 18 I love music I love humor I love seeing wizards rock the house Oh, and everyone else getting slipped an extra dimensional mickey in their drinks, too If we re really talking about sex, drugs, and rock and roll, I know we have the rock and roll down There are even a few trolls to do it RIGHT The drugs bit is Discworld itself, OF COURSE And if you really think about it, our universe really is doing a little slip slide with Discworld, too.SEE METAPHOR STRETCHED, NOT BROKEN I loved seeing Susan here She s a real trip Death, too, of course But it was a certain raven and a few unwashed rockers who stole the show today.

    C mo me gusta reencontrarme con La Muerte en mi lectura cronol gica de Mundodisco Este es el tercer libro de su subsaga y es un poco el m s extra o que he le do hasta ahora, puesto que La Muerte como tal apenas aparece Nuevamente, el personaje toma un respiro en su trabajo por cuestiones filos ficas y metaf sicas y su papel es ocupado por su nieta, Susan S , su nieta Llegando a este punto, creo que es necesario haber le do previamente los otros dos libros de la saga de La Muerte y, de hecho, alguno m s de otras sagas, porque esto ya empieza a mezclarse con muchos personajes que han aparecido en otros tomos hay magos, gente de la Guardia de la Noche, Escurridizo Y es m s, Terry Pratchett ya da por hecho en este libro que conoces a todos ellos, las particularidades de la ciudad de Ankh Morpork y el funcionamiento de los Gremios Entra a saco, va directo al grano, y si no sabes todas esas cosas, es f cil perderse y no ver ning n sentido en este libro Ahora m s que nunca me alegro de estar leyendo toda la saga cronol gica, porque son muchas las cosas que van conectando y que hacen que la experiencia de leer a Pratchett sea m s divertida Soul Music es un libro entretenido y divertido, no tan profundo como la entrega anterior de La Muerte, El Segador , que hasta ahora creo que es el libro m s serio de Mundodisco Soul Music es, entre otras cosas, una parodia de todo lo que rodea al mundo del rock aplicable a otros estilos musicales , del r pido ascenso a la fama y la f cil ca da y, tambi n, una cr tica al negocio feroz que son las discogr ficas y a los productores musicales, siempre tan avispados Hay cantidad de referencias a nombres de bandas, artistas y canciones rockeras, algunas adaptadas y otras que sin duda tienen m s gracia en la versi n original del libro y hasta la portada recuerda a la de un lbum de Meat Loaf Bat Out of Hell.En fin, que lo he le do a pasitos cortos, pero lo he pasado pipa con este libro Hasta la mitad me parec a normalito y adem s al principio me cost centrarme porque llevaba mucho tiempo sin leer Mundodisco, pero al final me doy cuenta de que lo he disfrutado mucho y es de los libros de la saga que m s poso me van a dejar.

    Soul Music was, I guess, my first true love Um, I mean with Terry Pratchett Um, I mean you know what I mean DSo much so that when I had to pick the topic of my 4,000 word IB extended essay, there was no room for doubt It had to be Susan And Death And the Music With Rocks In And the life saving, human defining importance of rebellion Teen angst, ha teen me would fume What d you grown ups know Meet 4,000 word essay here Even though this is the least academic of all the many drafts I wrote, it still sounds terribly highfalutin Thousand apologies.

    Any Discworld that features Death is a winner in my book I love the addition of the raven, and Susan s journey as Death s granddaughter was an interesting one And of course all the musical references were pretty great.Audiobook narrated by Nigel Planer Thumbs up

    I re read this book slowly past few weeks.So slowly I even forgot to added it to GR.Sadly my initial opinion still remains This is the worst Discworld book I read but not worst Pratchett s book that title goes to Long earth.That doesn t mean it s bad book but it s way bellow sir Terry s best works.Death is my second favorite Discworld character first one being Sam Vimes but like in Thief of time him Susan ended in totally uninteresting plot with overall very weak cast of characters.Soul music has brief flashes of Pratchett s brilliance but it s not enough and I feel this re read was wasted time.TIme I should have spent reading or re reading better Discworld books.

    I am convinced that Sir Pratchett wrote this book for the sole reason of putting in a grateful Death joke.It wasn t my favorite Discworld book, but the phrase Music With Rocks In is so charmingly Pratchett that I kind of wanted to hug it.

    Part of the Pratchett reread with the SpecFic Buddy Reads group in 2018 Death takes a break at about the same time as the Discworld latches on to yet another passing concept from elsewhere in the multiverse Music with Rocks In Ankh Morpork gets hit hard by the arrival of some new musicians and soon the whole city can t get enough of the new music, particularly including some of the Unseen University faculty Meanwhile, with Death missing, the role is picked up by his young granddaughter, Susan Sto Helit.In structure this book is very similar to Reaper Man, with two main plots that barely intersect There s the Wizards dealing with the new music including the first glimpse of what will later be called Hex and the band that is playing it, and a parallel plot dealing with Susan and Death and their grief over Susan s parents deaths.Like Reaper Man, the Death plot is the star, and while it has moments of humor the way that grief is affecting both of these characters is quite profound as is the relationship that they develop because of it.I do think that this is a slightly lesser work in the series, if only because the A plot is a bit pointless, and the B plot has the heavy lifting of introducing Susan I think the processing of grief that both Death and Susan are doing throughout is very subtle and extremely well handled.
