Soul Music is a fantasy novel by British writer Terry Pratchett, the sixteenth book in the Discworld series, first published in 1994. Like many of Pratchett's novels it introduces an element of modern society into the magical and vaguely late medieval, early modern world of the Discworld, in this case Rock and Roll music and stardom, with near disastrous consequences. It also introduces Susan Sto Helit, daughter of Mort and Ysabell and granddaughter of Death.

Soul music is another discworld novel where Terry Pratchett explores and pokes fun at a broad theme. In this case it's rock music and let's face it rock music is a valid target. It tells the story of Imp y Celyn who's a bard. Some of them are quite hard to spot. If you like Terry Pratchett then this is a great book anyway and since it's before he settled into principal character mode has a sense of fun and novelty that is missing in some of the more establishment Ankh-Morpork books. Rock music had it coming and Pratchett delivers agin in spades of laughter and irony.

The 16th novel in Terry Pratchett's Discworld series. Terry Pratchett has long been hailed as one of the kings of fantasy. In this, the 16th book in his unfailingly popular Discworld series, he gives us a sneaky glimpse into the personal life of one of his most iconic characters: Death himself. On the Discworld, phrases like ‘there’s a Death in the family’ take on a whole new meaning. Young Susan has always suspected that her Grandfather was different, as though all the time he spent riding a white horse and wielding a scythe weren’t enough of a giveaway.

Author : Terry Pratchett. Genres : Fantasy, Humorous. Soul Music is the 16th book in the bestselling Discworld series, with close ties to the fourth book, Mort. Susan Sto Helit is rather bored at her boarding school in the city of Ankh-Morpork, which is just as well, since it seems that her family business-she is the granddaughter of Death-suddenly needs a new caretaker.

Other children get given xylophones. 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 Sex, drugs and rock and roll in the Discworld.

Terry Pratchett: English author of fantasy novels, especially comical works. He is best known for his Discworld series of 41 novels. Pratchett's first novel, The Carpet People, was published in 1971.

This is a story about memory. She'd generally take a book into the classroom and read it peacefully, while all around her The Principal Exports of Klatch happened to other people. It was, undoubtedly, a beautiful harp. Very rarely a craftsman gets something so right that it is impossible to imagine an improvement.

A Discworld novel. It's hard to grow up normally when grandfather rides a white horse and wields a scythe - especially when you have to take over the family business, everyone thinks you're the Tooth Fairy, and you have to face the new and addictive music that has reached the Discworld.
  • One of the best early/mid Discworld books, which introduces one of the best characters in the series, Susan Sto Helit, aka Susan DEATH. The overall plot asks the question of what would happen if 'music with rocks in' (i.e. Rock and Roll) came to Discworld.

    This one is a pretty good Discworld starter book. (Discworld is an awesome series where you probably shouldn't start with the first books. The series has various connected subseries, such as the Guard books, the Wizard/Rincewind books, the Witches books, and the Death books. This is the third DEATH book, but it is also the start of the Susan Death arc within the Death books.

  • Soul music is another discworld novel where Terry Pratchett explores and pokes fun at a broad theme. In this case it's rock music and let's face it rock music is a valid target. It tells the story of Imp y Celyn who's a bard. He meets a troll and a dwarf and forms a band. They play "music with rocks in it" thanks to the help of a not entirely benign mythical guitar. On the way Death goes missing and his granddaughter Susan has to take over. What could possibly go wrong. Well if CMOT Dibbler is involved then you can bet that everything goes wrong with hilarious consequences. Half of the fun of this book is spotting obscure references to bands and songs. How about the felonious monk and the surreptitious fabric? Some of them are quite hard to spot. If you like Terry Pratchett then this is a great book anyway and since it's before he settled into principal character mode has a sense of fun and novelty that is missing in some of the more establishment Ankh-Morpork books. Rock music had it coming and Pratchett delivers agin in spades of laughter and irony. A great read.

  • The book itself is fantastic. However, there's serious formatting and typography problems. There's a whole section in the middle where the pages are out of order, and this book (and A LOT of other Kindle books) is FULL of typos apparently caused by no one checking the text recognition software when they scanned the book to digital. I bought this book years ago and I'm still waiting on a corrected update.

  • Terry Pratchett, engaging as always. I love these earlier books. This one in particular had me anxious to get back into that wonderful world as soon as I had to put it down. And when I got to the end, I was sad it was finished. There are such a number of Terry Pratchett books that have held this effect for me. Especially the ones where we get Pratchett's unique views on time and relativity. The only other author that I have read that has come onto this plane (so to speak) is Daniel Pinkwater. Both seem to share the same views and theories and present them in such delightful ways that they really do make sense. Read all the Discworld books and you will be submerged in lovely fantasy that will keep you entertained forever, that is, forever, depending on how you look at it...

  • NOTE: While the remainder of the review focuses on the content of the book itself, it is worth noting that as of this posting, the Kindle edition of this book suffers from a large number of typos that appear to be the result of poor OCR conversion. Hopefully, HarperCollins will fix this sooner than later.

    While it is still a very enjoyable book, Soul Music, the 16th entry in the Discworld series, is a bit of a letdown following the string of strong entries that began with the 12th book of the series, Witches Abroad, and continued through to the 15th, Men at Arms.

    Soul Music does for rock-and-roll (or, Music With Rocks In, as it is called in the Discworld) what Moving Pictures did for Hollywood. And, structurally, the plot is similar to that of Reaper Man, including, as it does, a storyline concerning the fallout that arises from Death taking some time off from his work (though in the current volume, he does so willingly). Like those two previous entries, Soul Music serves up some delightful characters and some great laughs, put the resulting whole lacks some of the heft and emotional punch of books like Small Gods or Men at Arms.

    It is certainly pleasurable to watch Pratchett riff on rock culture (across all eras, but with a focus on early formative rock-n-roll - the protagonist is essentially a Discworld mash-up of Elvis - "he looks a bit elvish to me" - and Buddy Holly). And Pratchett's storytelling skills remain impeccable. While the book does share much in terms of plot and structure with Reaper Man and Moving Pictures, it easily bests both those entries with its tight pacing and its thoroughly satisfying and convincing resolution. At the same time, one can't help but miss the satire and weightier observational humor that has marked the previous four entries in the Discworld series.

    Soul Music is, however, also a book in which Death plays a significant role. And, as he has in past books, Death, for all his inability to grasp some of the basic elements of what it means to be mortal, becomes the perfect vehicle to capture the seeming absurdity of human existence.

    While some Discworld fans may find this book to be not quite as strong as some previous Discworld novels, it is still, at the very least, a well-written book with a generous serving of laughs.
