A review by octavia_cade
Soul Music, by Terry Pratchett


This is one of those Discworld books I enjoy but just don't love. It's paired, in my mind, with Moving Pictures, which was also a three star read for me and for much the same reason. This is a clever book, full of references to popular music but again, the emotional heart isn't there for me. There are some nice moments between Susan (one of my favourite Discworld characters) and Death, but every time I settled in to enjoy those I'd get dragged back to Buddy, whom I don't care about at all. By the end I'm ready to boot him off the cliff myself just to stop him interrupting the good bits.

Still a fun read, but one of Pratchett's more average efforts I think.
