Download Terry Pratchett - Soul Music PDF eBook (Discworld #16)Soul Music is a fantasy novel by the English author Terry Pratchett. First published in 1994, it became the 16th volume in Discworld series. Like in some of his other works, in this book Pratchett mixes some elements from real life into his magical realm of Discworld. This time he chooses to make some spin-offs on the glamorous Rock 'N' Roll music and its stars. This novel also introduces some interesting new characters, one of them is Death’s granddaughter.
With many references to popular culture icons such as the Beatles and Jimi Hendrix, Soul Music is potentially fun to be adapted into other visual formats. An animated TV mini-series was produced and broadcasted in 1997 under the same title. The presence of the rock ‘n’ roll legends in this version is even more apparent than what is mentioned in the book. For example, it refers to Lennon’s (in)famous declaration that the Beatles was “more famous than Jesus,” only in this version, there is a rock star saying that his band is “more popular than cheeses.”
*Review of Terry Pratchett's Soul Music*
Nepotism is given an unusual spin in Pratchett's 14th Discworld novel, as Death's granddaughter picks up the scythe when the Grim Reaper takes a vacation. Trolls, dwarves, magicians and rock music—music played with rocks—figure in this amusing but overlong romp, which begins with the formation of a band by aspiring musician Imp y Celen (aka Buddy). Arriving in the city of Ankh-Morpork, Buddy finds a magical guitar which enables the group—a rock-playing troll, an ax-wielding dwarf and an Orangutan pianist—to drive crowds wild. But the instrument causes conflict between the motley crew and Susan, Death's granddaughter, who is just adjusting to her new post. Many of the ensuing comic situations involve Death trying to get drunk, though Pratchett's liberal application of jokes scores as many misses as hits. Extraneous plot information slows the pace as the narrative rattles to a colossal, albeit uninspired, conclusion. Science Fiction Book Club main selection.
