I don't know if it says more about me or the book, but I found myself skim reading parts of this.

I thought I would go back and re-read the discworld Death books, but now I'm not so sure. Death has some snappy one liners, but there is not enough there to really engage with the character.

The other part of the book is the wizards, and although I have fond memories of the parody-of-academe in the Unseen University, it didn't quite do it for me either in this book.
